Why can I not open my DVD door?

After I use ImgBurn I cannot open the DVD door with its button.  If I reboot
all is okay as is if I reopen ImgBurn and use its open tray button.

Help requested.

Burning software may lock the drive so you cannot open the door
mid-burn.  Nero does this, and I suspect ImgBurn is as well.  When
you're using ImgBurn, it completes normally?  When you exit ImgBurn does
it leave peacefully *and* disappear from the Process/Application lists?
  The eject button still does not work?

If you've answered "yes" to all of these questions, I suspect there is
some sort of bug in ImgBurn.  In that case, contacting the manufacturer
would be worth an attempt.

Here is a procedure that sometimes works to "unlock" the eject button with
out requiring you to boot the machine.  You may need to shut down the CD
burner program first.

1) Go to "My Computer".
2) Right click on the drive in question.
3) Scroll down and choose "Eject", even if no disk is in the drive.

With a little luck your drive eject button is once again working for you.
