    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.

    Anyone else have the same problem?

    I'm having that problem with Home Premium 32bit. Well, the eject button is a little messed up and it goes off randomly.

    dell has provided an update for the bios to fix this issue.. make sure you have the latest bios.. i.e. version A05 installed... this should fix the issue...

    Same problem with Vista 64 Ultimate (SP1 updated) and 4 GB ram...
    When I push the eject button (inside or outside Vista) the system freezes and I have to shut down the pc using the power button...

    The AO5 Bios doesn't fix anything... :mad:
    The Bios release note is just words written by Dell...

    I must use Vista Ultimate 32 bit to solve the problem...

    x500, same problem with me, I updated BIOS too, and now, instead of continuously ejecting, the dvd does not eject at all when pressing the eject button or the Fn+f10 kbd shortcut!!!

    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'
