built new pc with 1 hdd on ide 1 and 1 dvd player and 1 cdrw on ide 2. the dvd ejects itself whenever it feels like it. no pattern noticed, no programs running in background either.

any ideas would be appreciated

Switch off PC, remove the IDE cable from the drive and re-power up the pc, to find out if its a software problem.

If it still happens without the IDE cable connected then it's a hardware problem.
