help: ibook combo drive upgrade... - Mac Portable

I have upgraded an iBook (2001/10) CDR to CDRW-DVD using a Toshiba SD-R2002 slave unit. I had to order the bezel separately and insta;;ed it as well to match the original Apple. The drive can read and write fine. However, it will not stay shut unless there is a CD/DVD inside. If I attempt to close it without one inside, it shuts/whirrs for a while (about a minute) and then spits out the tray... This is a stock model replacement and should not be giving me any problems - unless of course if the drive is defective. Please let me ...

    let me know if you have any clues as to what I should do next short of
    returning the drive. Thanks. Matt K.
