Open dvd drawer closes Windows Media Player

I can live with it, but am curious why the 'Open drive drawer' button on my USB keyboard closes WMP if it is open. The button on the drive doesn't do it, and no entry in Event Viewer.

Any thoughts?

when it closes media player, does it still open the drive??

I've had problems with these programmable keys not working correctly, gave up and left them.

Or maybe, just maybe, a little idiosyncrasy or bad habit the keyboard I think its just the way the keyboard software is executing the generic command.

Thanks, yes, the drive opens. The only other button that affects WMP is the drive 'Stop' button, which stops the playing.

I agree, it's just a mild conflict.
