Cd tray won't open from boot

After PC boot my CD tray won't open. No sign of any processes or apps running that might be capturing the drive. Also can't eject via explorer.
If I do the time-honoured straight paper clip jobbie I can open the drive and if I'm in an app such as iTunes for example the tray usually continues to open properly once I've forced it. However exiting the app often leaves me back at square one with the paper clip. Running win7 but I've seen the same thing before on previous OS builds on the same hardware. Any Ideas?

Try reseating the cables to both the drive itself and the MoBo, if that doesn't resolve the issue, buy a new one because yours broke :-)
