    Win 8 Accessing empty Blu ray drive

    Hi all, i have just done an upgrade from Win 7 to Windows 8 and all went very well with no problems as such that is until i noticed the light on my Internal Sata Blu ray Drive flashing like mad it seems that something is trying to access the empty drive i have to continually press the eject button inbetween flashes to get it to eject and at present i have disabled the drive in the device manager as the continually accessing noise was driving me mad, can anyone shed some light on the problem as the drive was working perfectly under windows 7 and this is the only stumbling block thus far i have with win 8.

    Ps drive was empty during install.
