Dell Studio 1535 Dvd keeps ejecting Vista Ult 64 bit
I installed vista 64 ult on a studio 1535. I am not quite sure which dvd/cd drive I have. But the problem is after I eject a disk, it will constantly eject any cd/dvd drive I feed it for about 5-6 times. I noticed after I eject a disc the disk info is still labeled on the drive as if it was still in there.
I tried right clicking the cd/dvd tray and choosing eject and it solved the problem. However, it is a bit of an inconvience. There is some glitch when I press the eject button and vista registering as the disc being ejected. Any disc I feed into the drive does not read and causes the window to "not respond" and the ejected disc info still remains. I also did not experience this problem is vista 32 bit.

I recently bought one of these myself and also experienced the crazy eject behavior (amongst some other issues). I also noticed that the plastic cover behind the keyboard (where the speaker openings are) was kind of bowed.
I removed this cover and found that some of the antenna cables were not properly routed and were causing interference with the cover and also the circuit board that provides the capacitive sensing switches (indluding volume and cd eject). After re positioning these cables the cover snapped down better and the crazy eject problem stopped.
If you are somewhat handy you might try fixing this yourself.
remove the battery
remove 2 phillips screws that are under the battery
gently pry the plastic cover off careful not to apply too much force. There are some light snaps that help retain this part in addition to the 2 screws. Also there is a white flat cable that connects the cap sense board to the motherboard. (See the photo) If not careful you might tear this cable when removing the plastic cover.
Once under the hood you will notice some rather obvious wire routing channels for the antenna cables that route through the hinge to the display. Apparently these were not so obvious to the folks who assemble this notebook..
I put some photos on flickr that you might find with a search including 'dell studio 1535 eject'
