How can I eject a cd drive from an Acer Aspire e 15?

Are you asking about ejecting the drive or the CD in the drive? The drive you may or may not be able to eject. Flip over the laptop look for slides or what looks like switches under the CD. Some units may have these releases. You usually slide them to one side or another and the drive can be removed.
If you are asking about the CD, i.e.the laptop wont power up but you still have a CD/DVD in the drive you want. Usually there is a tiny hole on the drive door. It's about the same size as a paperclip diameter. Unbend the paperclip until you have about 1 inch of wire straight out at a 90 degree angle from the clip. Gently slide the wire into the hole on the drive door and give it a gentle push. The door should unlock and come open just a bit allowing you to pull the door all the way open and remove your captured CD. The gears that open and close CD's are plastic and can be stripped very easy so be gentle. Close the CD by slowly pushing the door closed.

Start burn will not high light to burn CD on Acer

Do you have a CD Burner on your system? Were you able to burn things before?

When you click Start/My Computer and look at your CD Drive does it say CD-RW? When you look at the drive's door on the laptop does it say CDrw or CD Rewritable? You have to have a drive that can burn.

I have an Acer Aspire 5534 laptop. I put a photo disc in and the eject button is not working. The photo Cd is in machine and won't come out

Look at the drive there should be a tiny pinhole near the eject button, insert a needle (safety pin, sewing, etc.) into the pin hole and push this opens the drive.
You can also try opening my computer and right clicking the DVD drive and select eject.

Well we have a acer computer and the cd drive is stuck

If pressing the eject button does not eject the tray, look for the small pin hole on the cd drive and insert a paper clip to press that hole. It would manually eject your CD tray. Hope this helps.

Drive issue


The halfway opening of the CD tray is rather normal for slim versions of the CD drive as in the case  in your laptop.  Full slideout of tray is standard on the desktop versions.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
