    hi there i have got a samsung 52x cd writer about a year old. the problem is that since a few weeks the cd tray keeps popping out automatically and stays there!
    is it because of a virus ? which one( if yes)?

    This helped once maybee it will you. Unplug the Cd-rom from the computer. let the system boot without it. Power down and plug the drive back in. Power back up and it should stay closed. I did this on an XP (no SP) system.

    You could always use it to put your coffee cup on

    Not sure what the dasm.b worm is at it is not mentioned as a worm on Google or symantec site

    If you have a friend that has a PC, try it in theres... If it works normaly (tray opens and closes normaly, reads and writes) then it is a software problem on your PC, if it does the same thing then it could be the drive is defective, buy another one they are really cheap now for a CDRW or better yet buy yourself a DVDRW they are cheap now aswell.
