    Okay cool, well what other apps are running? Do you have any peripherals plugged in? If you're bored, then create a new user account in System Preferences and see if it randomly starts up there too.

    at the time i noticed it i was running quicktime and firefox. i also have all my music on my external. i verified the external and so far it hasnt done it, this confused me as verifying the disc doesnt do anything right?

    anyways thanks for the help and if it acts up again, ill try the another account thing

    Verifying the drive shouldn't affect it at all. Firefox may have been trying to open it to stream something for you, but I imagine you would have known about it. I dunno. Tell us exactly what you're doing and what's open the next time it opens randomly, because I can just imagine how annoying it'd be for you.
