It looks like the software that runs a hardlock dongle: a piece of hardware that is used to prevent software piracy on certain programs. If you don't have anything like or connected to your compuer, you probably don't need it.
Well, I'm declaring it done, although it's failing in the kindest, gentlest fashion I've ever seen from unhappy hardware. :-) Power up the machine & the tray opens. Close the tray, it thinks a moment, then opens the tray. Repeatedly.
