Try ejecting the drive using the "eject" when you right click a drive. If it works, the eject button may be faulty.

Disc Drive


If the eject button is not working, assuming this is a Windows based computer, click on start icon, your start menu will display, on right side under your user icon you should see Computer or My Computer, click on it.
You will now see all drives in your computer. Right click on your dvd(optical) drive. You should see an eject option.

If this dosen't work, close to the eject button on the drive is a tiny hole that will accept a paper clip, carefully push clip into hole until drive ejects.

My cd is stuck and the eject button won't eject it. Is there any way I can get it out?


There are two ways to open the CD drive door ifthe 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 drivetray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive traypops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CDdisc.
If you continue having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD drivemay be faulty and needs replacing.

I cannot eject a cd from the drive. i have tried to eject using the button and in my computer. in device manager it says the device is fine. any ideas?? there isnt an manual eject hole for the paperclip...


Shut down the PC, for 2min, then turn on, this is either a hardware or software problem. Software meaning that it is unable to execute the command to eject, shutting down and turning on may resolve this problem. Or hardware is the sence that the disk is Physicaly stuck in which case you would need some one with the know how to remove the disk without damaging the components within.
Your timely rating of this soloution is much appreciated.
Thanks

I need to remove a disk from a Sony NEC Optiarc AD-7640S


CD Stuck in Device
First try the normal methods to remove the disc. Drag its icon to the Trash can in the Dock or select 'Eject' from the File menu. If you are running a virtual machine, e.g. VMFusion, ensure that the CD is disconnected from the virtual machine. This will sometimes allow the CD to now show up in Mac OS X. Shut down the computer and start up whilst holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared. If you have Toast Titanium installed on your computer, choose EJECT DISC from the menubar. Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder Open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button. Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism. Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray. Restart the computer while holding down Command-Option-O-F, to enter the Open Firmware prompt. Type "eject cd" without the quotes, and press return. The disk ought to eject. To start into OS X, type "mac-boot" without the quotes. Press return, and the computer will continue with the startup. (This will not work on an Intel Mac. There is no Open Firmware on Intel Macs. ) If your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button.

Ejecting cd dell studio 17


It's very annoying they don't tell you how to do this. I looked here for the solution, then found it myself.

You have to depress the blue Fn key and simultaneously depress F10. Notice that that key has a blue "eject" symbol on it.
