CD/DVD DRIVE Opening Automatically Several Times

I tried disabling "sr_mod" and "cdrom" modules but still it's opening. I tried seeing the forums but none of them worked for me, so I'm not able to figure out whether it software or hardware problem.

Can anyone please help me or give me some suggestion.

Sounds like a hw problem. Does it do it when you're in the BIOS/UEFI?

If there's a disk, remove it.
Otherwise check whether if fully closes.
When they turn old, the tray tends to displace. Pass it a manual extra-push when it's supposed to be closed and see whether this stops.

I'm not trying to insult your intelligence, but make sure you aren't pushing on the eject button as your trying to close the drive. Happened to me (I know, fail...) so I just wanted to mention this to you.

Re: CD/DVD DRIVE Opening Automatically Several Times

What desktop environment are you using?
What file mangers have you open?
Anything interesting in the journal or dmesg?
Are you using any music programs that play CD's?
What happens if you mount a cd-rom (NOT a music CD, they don't have normal file systems).  With media mounted, does it eject?

Do you have udisks2 enabled via systemctl enable udisks2? Could it be your setup at fault?

Desktop Environment - KDE
File Managers - Dolphin
I use VLC Media Player to play CD's
When I mount my cd-rom, Sometimes the cd gets ejected automatically and sometimes works absolutely fine.

Re: CD/DVD DRIVE Opening Automatically Several Times

I found a workaround from stackexchange by completely disabling the eject button function by editing the udev rules file

1.Make a copy of the file

60-cdrom_id.rules
$ sudo cp /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/60-cdrom_id.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/

2.Edit this copied version of the file and comment out the line containing the string,

ENV{DISK_EJECT_REQUEST}=="?*", RUN+="cdrom_id --eject-media $devnode", GOTO="cdrom_end"

3.Save the file and the change should be noticeable immediately, eject button is not working anymore and automatically ejecting of cd/dvd drive problem is not present anymore.
