Can't get disc out of tower

I put a disc in to burn pics on it. It opened just fine to put the disc in, but now it won't open to get the disc out. This has happened before and someone told me to open the flap and put a pen in the hole and it opened- that is not working this time either!! Please help!!!

Restart the computer, and when computer is starting up keep pressing many times the eject button until disk pops out.
Do this a couple of times
If this does not work you will need to remove the CD/DVD unit and stick a paperclip on the CD eject hole, in the front side of the CD/DVD drive.

The cd door won't open on the tower


CD Drive Tray problems
There are two ways to open the CD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

Disc drive won't open


CD/DVD drive?

Some have a tiny hole, right under the tray that comes out. Use a paperclip in the hole to manually open the tray.

(Some desktop computer towers have a door in front, that needs to be eased open first, then access to the actual CD/DVD drive unit can be obtained)

How do i download pics from comp to disk


Hi,
  1. Insert a writeable CD or DVD into your computer's CD or DVD recorder.
  2. In the dialog box that appears, click Burn files to data disc.
  3. In the Burn a Disc dialog box, type a name for this disc, and then click Next.
    It might take several minutes for the disc to be formatted in the default Live File System format. When the formatting is complete, an empty disc folder opens.
  4. Open the folder that contains the files you want to burn, and then drag the files into the empty disc folder.

    cdb4d559-8825-47a1-8175-79020965d91c.pngYou can copy files to the disc folder by dragging them to the disc icon or to an open disc folder As you drag files into the disc folder, they are copied automatically to the disc.
Thanks for using Fixya

Open it up and unscrew the screws around the CD reader. Then pull it back from the edge of the tower. You know, give it space between itself and the button. It could be the tower itself that's pushing on the CD reader.

If not, then update its drivers. That's fairly obvious.

You might be able open the software you are using to try to burn the DVD and manually set the speed of the DVD burner so it matches the speed of the DVD.  
If you need help with this, I will need the name of the software and the brand and speed of the DVD you are using.

There is a small hole on the CD-Rom you can straighten out a safety pin and push it in there. It will eject the CD. Hopefully it will then fix your problem.
