Hey guys...it appears that when I open my cd drive and close it...the lid doesn't close, but it gets stuck. How do I go about this? Get a new drive or something?

Mine does that, too. Gets worse in winter or cold weather. I just give a quick tap on the little tabs at the bottom of the drive--sometimes I tap harder several times--and after a couple of those the door pops back shut.
