[lug] CD Oddity

As random as it is, it sounds more like a hardware problem.

Is there a 'PLAY' button on the front of the drive? It might be
sticky. Also, you might be getting static discharges through
the front of the drive, this can cause the drive to think that a
PLAY button was pressed.

CompUSA was advertising a 52x CDROM drive for $35 with a
$15 rebate.
