    Just got a Pioneer 216-R DVD Burner. It worked great, extremely fast and fully functional. But when I pressed eject button it said I inserted a blank DVD(which I didn't) it asks what I want to open it with. What am I doing wrong? Or what's wrong with the DVD drive?!

    is it an external one, or built in?

    if external there should be a small hole on the front, try inserting a paper clip or such device in there to open it,

    if internal

    re boot holding the ALT/ option key ;) that should force it open

    Nope, alt/option brings up the "boot menu". Holding the mouse button during the initial boot process forces the CD/DVD drive open.
