    Default Manual ejection of BT cd

    Using ctrl-alt-del , logout, followed by the command "reboot" and enter, brings me back to my bios where I change the boot order back to my HD. I then boot into W7, but am unable to remove BT disk. This requires a manual ejection of the disk. Following this, closing the drive, I still can not open it. It must still be a manual ejection. The system requires a hard boot for the drive to get back to normal.

    Any thoughts on this?
    Thank You.

    Have you tried ejecting the cd while you're manipulating the BIOS (or sooner), instead of waiting for windows to boot?

    Well, if it's happening before windows is even loaded, that mostly rules windows out as a problem. Does it happen if you shutdown and then turn the computer on again instead of rebooting?

    Have tried both the shutdown -h now command along with the poweroff command. Following these commands and prior to hitting enter, I am asked to remove the cd. Pushing the button does nothing and I the have to use the" paper clip" to eject. If I let the disk stay , hit enter the pc shuts down. Turning it back on and changing my bios boot order, takes me to w7 where I can then push the button to eject the cd. I can live with this. Thanks to those who responded to my inquiry.
