At times my DVD drive will spin forever, it happened in rare cases, eg, I
broke out with ^C after issuing dvd burning command or something. Last time
it was over 20 minutes and my DVD drive still spin on and on, with
excessive noise much louder than normal. I can't use the eject command or
button to stop the spinning. There is no process to kill, I have to reboot
the whole machine to fix this problem.

It has happened several times to me, I'm wondering if there is any solution
if it happens again. 

thanks
