CD DVD DONT OPEN STUCK WHAT SHOULD I DO


You should have posted some more details about CD/DVD model and make. Anyhow, there are several ways to get the CD out of a CD/DVD ROM or Player.
In case of Desktop PC, check for a pinhole just below the eject compartment and insert a rigid metal pin (like straightened U-clip) till it reaches some shaft. now with a controlled force, push that shaft inside and the CD/DVD cover will open. In laptops, the hole is on the eject cover itself.

In Desktop, check for loose connection of the power connector. Opening CD ROM and releasing CD would be the final solution.

How to open the disk drive


Open the Computer folder in Start Menu, select the DVD Rom Icon, right click, select Eject. If a DVD or CD has exploded inside remove DVD Rom and open the DVD case. Sometimes if you open the front case door cover and access the DVD/CD drive door you will see a tiny hole to insert a open paper clip that will open the tray.

Cd does not spin on compaq ipaq machine,does it need a seperate power supply?


Most probably the CD-ROM is already malfunctioning. Since it's an internal CD-ROM, it should just be connected to the Power Supply that is inside the CPU.

Cd stock on the cd-rom


Straighten a paper clip, find a small hole near the eject button, Insert the clip and push until the CD tray opens. This is an emergency mechanism that comes with all CD drives.

Cd- rom


Either you dont have power to it or the mechanism that opens it has failed, you can check power by opening the computer case and make sure it is plugged in, if it is, there is a small hole on the fron youcan insert a paperclip into, and it will manually eject the tray if you need the cd out, if niether one of these fixes the issue then you will need to replace the drive.

Hope this helps, if so pleas rate accordinly. Thanks, david

Cd-rom/dvd-rom door won't open


Hi!This is not a big problem...All you have do is take a pin, needle or something and just insert it into the small hole near your cd-rom drive..try this repeatedly while pressing the eject button..If it doesn't work you will have to unscrew the two screws on the right of your keyboard..doing this will give you the access to the cd tray and you can remove the cd and put it back together..

somthing thats worth trying is going into my computer, right click on the cdrom drive and click eject if it works that way then its software thats stopping it from ejecting, if it still dont work take a paperclip and push it in the small hole in the cdrom drive and it will pop out its only a temporary thing but it works to get the cd out.. All the Best John
