DVD drive won't eject CD/DVD after some time

If I put in various DVDs or CDs into my drive, open its media and let after it "idle" the drive a bit (don't use it for some minutes) the drive won't eject the CD/DVD anymore. I tried several way to let the drive open, but nothing works (pushing the drives button, draggin from desktop into eject field and and and).

 

Can someone help me?

Did you every figure this one out? I have the similar symptoms.

 

If I use the DVD drive for awhile and then eject it from the finder window. The DVD drive becomes unfunctional. I cannot eject via keyboard or finder. The DVD drive is also not seen in NOT seen in the About This Mac at this point.

 

Upon restart, the DVD drive is fully functional. 100% supported in About This Mac.

 

Thanks for any help.

This may not be quite the same issue, but i've had dvd's stuck in my drive because the OS doesnt read them. F12 does not eject the correct dvd drive (it openes the other one! :( so i launched Toast which has an eject option, and allowed me to get the dVD out.
