Yes, I did.

It was hardware-related. It was the CD/DVD ribbon connector getting all wrinkles and apparently something resetting just out of even the smallest vibration.

You may find this ribbon connector appearance conspicous. It usually gold or red colored. Look from under your laptop while drive's out if you can't see it from topside.

And this ribbon connector is not exactly cheap too. I'm not sure why.
