Question about HP LightScribe dvd640i (DVD640I) DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

I have a HP dvd/cd rewritable drive (external) - Model #dvd640e. I believe I have a dvd stuck in the drive, but I can't eject the dvd (I can't open the slot to place the DVD in the drive). I have unplugged the device from my PC, but I don't see how I can open it to remove the DVD (if that's what is causing the problem). I only see two small crews in the back, underneath the on/off switch. Any suggestions?

Yes i have a suggestion for you. You will find a very small pin size hole just below the tray. You need to insert a needle/Pin into that hole and press it. The tray will come out and you will be able to remove the dvd.

Please rate the solution.

All the best

Lightscribe dvd drive won't work. the eject command does not make it open either. seems to be jammed. if i break it down can it be "unjammed" without ruining it?


Actually it's probaly just got some dust or something in it. What you do to manually open it is take a needle, thumb tack, or safety pin and simply insert it into the tiny hole above the eject button on the dvd drive itself. You'll feel the tip of the button when you push the pin into the hole then it will pop the door and the drive will open properly. This has gone on for cd/dvd drives for years. Usually just the cause of dust or what have you being stuck in the mechanism.

I have a Sony DVD/CD Rewritable drive that tries to eject but doesn't. It is model # DW-D22A. Is this a problem I might be able to fix or would I be better off getting a new drive?


It may have a jam, there is a small pin hole under the tray usually on the right side.. straighten out a paper click and press it in there with some force. This is the manual eject. See if it resumes normal operation after that.

Can I put internal LG GH22 rewriter inside external GSA-E60N


First, open the external casing.
You'll find an "internal" CD/DVD drive, connected to an adapter, and the adapter connects to the USB cable.

Now, look at the adapter -- it could be a "parallel-ATA" interface, or it could be a "SATA" interface. The new CD/DVD drive will have to have the same connectors (data and power) as the adapter.

You might have to exchange the SATA device for a Parallel-ATA device.

If you have a parallel-ATA CD/DVD drive, look at the back of it.
There is a tiny jumper, and a few labelled settings:

* MA(ster)
* SL(ave)
* C(able)S(elect)

Move the jumper to the 'MA' setting, so that the USB-adapter will recognize the CD/DVD drive.

Connect the drive to the adapter.
Close the case.
You're good to go!

I have a disc stuck in my CDRW Que! 40x12x48. Any suggestion? I have tried a paper clip


A paperclip should eject the tray, what happens when you use the paperclip? Have you been able to successfully use a paperclip in the past on this exact drive?

HP dvd640e not recognizing DVD+R DL


6/25/9:  While this external HP DVD640e burner was listed as a NEW drive - "new" meant never used. A check with HP techs told me the unit was a 2005 factory closeout and the dual layer disc required for it is a 2.4 speed disc. I bought a 2.4 speed DL disc and it works perfect in it.  As far as seeing a CD when a DVD was installed is presumed also the fault of having the wrong speed disc in it (that lot of Memorex DL discs I am also having trouble with elsewhere too). Double-checking my profiler, it does give speed as 2.4x as the burner's profile. Alas, the problem was my newness to the DVD technology. A slap to the forehead and move on.
