There is a little pin hole on the front of the cd/dvd draw, insert a pin or sharp object and it will eject.

Dell studio one optical drive makes a chattering noise and ejects the cd after 2 seconds


Although you will rarely be able to repair your own CD player, you may be able to diagnose problems.


That can help you decide whether to have it repaired.


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules



Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.



Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.

While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards



Check all connections, such as from player to amplifier or receiver and receiver to speaker. Check and clean contacts on RCA jacks and cables and try a different input on the amplifier or receiver.


Clean the lens.

Use only a special CD lens cleaner and follow the instructions carefully.


Check the traverse assembly (the metal rod that the laser travels along and the gear that drives it) if CDs aren't recognized or won't play, frequent skipping occurs at random, CDs randomly get stuck in one spot, the player can't find tracks correctly, or cleaning the lens doesn't work.


Dust and lint may be interrupting its function.


Have the laser-head assembly checked by a repair person if the traverse assembly seems intact and free of debris.


Check for a stuck CD if the drawer won't open or close or will only partially open or close.

If there isn't one, have gears and belts replaced.


Lubricate the gears if the CD player will only play certain tracks or up to a particular point on a disc.


Look for broken plastic parts, such as gears and clips.


Look for loose or broken internal connections.


Have the power supply replaced if your CD player overheats.


If your player won't recognize a disc, make sure the CD is properly loaded and not scratched, and that the lens is clean.


Hope this helps.

I have downloaded photos from my camera to a disc, how do I download from the disc to my computer


Hi jhairmech...

You will put your disc into the disc player and if it does not start then you will double left click on My Computer, when it opens you will look at "Devices with Removable Storage" and locate your CD player and double left click on it to start the player...
Once the player is playing it will open a window to show your pictures...
Highlight your pictures and put them into the file of your choice.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

CD will not eject on my Dell Dimension 4600


Removing a disc with the computer off

To remove a disc with the computer turned off:

1 Insert a slender object, such as a straightened paper clip, into

the manual eject hole.

The disc tray slides partially out of the drive (about 1 inch).

Never use a pencil to press the manual eject button. Pencil lead can

break off inside the computer and damage it.

2 Pull the tray out until it is fully open, remove the disc, and

place it in its protective cover.

3 Gently press the tray in to close it.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

I have a Desk top Dell computer, but I am having problems with the modem, I can't get the disk drive door to open, computer works great


I don't know why the drawer not opening would give you modem problems.
If you need to open the CD drawer, you can go to "my computer" (just "computer in Win7), right click on the CD icon and choose "eject."
Or, using a large paper clip or similar object, insert it into the little hole on the front of the CD and push gently. It will release the drawer and start to open it. You can then pull it open.

The cd/dvd writer constantly open and close once a disc is inserted. On insertion of a disc, cd/dvd player will read the data on the disc. Windows Media player will display realtime image of the movie,...


Hi Charles,

The issue is due to the driver corruption. You need not worry, there is a simple solution for this.

Go to device manage --> right click on your CD/DVD drive and then click uninstall and then restart your computer. Do not keep any CDs while you do this. Just try this out.

Dell dimension 2400 cd drawer opens up when


The latch which holds the CD tray in place once the drawer retracts must be faulty. You will need to take it to a repair shop in order to have it fixed, unless you are comfortable with pulling apart the computer shell in order to test the latch to see if it is functional.

If you are not a professional, I would suggest taking it to your local computer repair store for service. They will be able to assess if that is the issue you are having.

Dell Modem CD Drawer Won't Open


Yes. There should be a very small hole on the front of the CD/DVD drawer. Insert a straightened paper clip into this hole until you feel it push a button, and this should manually release the drawer.
