Dell Dimension 3000: DVD/CD drive will not eject. Prior to this occurrence, the computer did not recognize a disc was present (Please insert a disc into Drive D). Any/all help will be appreciated.


This is an indication that the CD is going bad, in my experience.
You can open "my computer" and right click on it and choose "eject"
That's a pain, but it should work. If it doesn't, then you should replace the drive. The price for a multi-burner has really fallen over the last year.

Computer games won't work i think it is the disc drive


Hi okaokman94,
possible reasons would be:

1. bad cd - return it to where you purchase it but before that, see if you can try it on another pc.
2. faulty cd rom - try another cd and see if it works,( audio cd,video cd)

How do you burn a cd on the travelmate 290 ?


Windows XP CD Copy Windows XP has CD-Recordable (CD-R) disc burning support for most CD writers.
8b118c9.gif First set your CD-recording options:
  • Open "My Computer"
  • Right-click your CD-R drive and select "Properties". See figure BK-1.
  • Select the "Recording" tab (if this tab isn't available, your device doesn't support CD burning).
  • Check the box to "Enable CD recording on this drive".
  • Select the drive to hold the temporary files (before the system burns a CD-R disc, the system writes the files to be recorded to an intermediary area - this area must have enough free space to hold an entire CD's content).
  • Select the CD recording speed (Fastest, 4X, 2X, and 1X).
  • Select whether to eject the media after recording.
  • Click OK.

Perform the following steps to record to a CD-R:
  • Insert a blank CD-R disc into your CD burner.
  • Copy or drag the files or folders to be recorded to the CD-R drive, or right-click on the files or folders and select Send To, Writable CD.

  • After you have copied all the files, select the CD-R drive from "My Computer" and you'll see the waiting files as "Files to add to the CD."
  • Right-click the CD-R drive, and select Write to CD.
  • Enter a name for the CD-R disc, and click Next.
  • The files will be written to the CD-R disc.
  • After the system writes all the files, it will eject the CD-R disc (if you chose that option above).
  • Click Finish.

Is the CD drive display in my computer? yes

If no, then; Fix some cable connection towards your CD/DVD rom for it was lessen.

If not fix the problem verify the disc if it is readble by your Rom. Please try another disc in your Rom.

one last try:

try your new purcahse disc in another computer that is compatible with your disc.
