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.

Testimonial: "The hole was hard to find being that it was hidden behind the outside flap. Worked like a charm!"

SOURCE: cd drive door will not

Is there any power to the drive? IE is there a green light on the front when trying to read the disk?

It may not have the power in, or may have blown a power circuit.

IF it was just the door not opening and the unit has power, i would suggest the little rubber band is having issues and not opening or closing the door.

SOURCE: Hp IQ780A has a2discs stuck in the dvd drive

Woah! You don't want to hear this but forcing a second disc into the drive has probably destroyed the drive read head. They are pretty tough and it might be able to survive but you will most certainly have to dismantle the drive to remove the DVD and not create any more damage. Kind of like scraping someone elses car in a parking lot. More damage is done when you try to back off of the other car than the initial hit. (not like that's ever happened to me :) )

SOURCE: installing blu-ray drive on hp m8200n - dvds not read

Look at the back of both drives, there should be some tiny jumpers located next to where you plug the data cable in. One drive should be set to master and one drive to slave. Chances are you have both set as master. Change one to slave and your problem should go away.

SOURCE: hp disc drve

It's a little strange that the CD burner (I presume you're trying to burn a CD?) is drive F: it's normally D. Can you please open Windows Explorer (press the "Windows" key and E simultaneously) and give us a list of the drives you see in the left hand panel. You should see drives C, D,E and F (possibly other after F as well(. Can you also say what model the computer is, what operating system you are running (e.g. Windows XP) and which software you are using to try & burn the disc. Then we can try & figure out what's wrong :)

I put a disc in the drive and it stayed in the computer when the disc drive was opened


I am assuming that when the disc drive tray came out, the holder was empty, and you had placed the disc in the holder prior to this. Did you use the disc? Did it operate properly? Has your PC been tilted for any reason before trying to remove the disc? My feeling is the disc has to be SOMEWHERE! Take a flashlight and take a peak in the opened drive. Can you see the disc anywhere? Perhaps tweezers can be used with scotch tape wrapped around the points to keep it from scratching the disc. Grasp the edge of the disc and pull it out, if possible. If you can't find the disc, you should open the case and do a search. You might need to remove the drive itself, but hopefully you will get the disc back without needing to go to that step.

Good luck!

The disc drive won't open on my hp dc7700


To force it open you can use a paper clip. Bend it open so you can stick the end of it into a little hole that is right near the disc drive. This will release the spring to allow it to open. The reason it is not opening on it's own, could be that it is no longer getting any power (disconnected cable inside the box) or that the drive itself has failed.

So, first open it up manually with a paper clip and then if nothing happens when you push it back in then either a cable issue or bad drive...

Insert boot disc error on hp pavillion a622n


Boot disc error indicates that your computer is unable find any Operating system to boot up. Go to BIOS settings and figure out if your BIOS detects your hard drive. If so, format your hard drive and install an operating system.

I would love to hear from you in regards to this concern.

How to open driver door


Do you mean the disc drive tray won't open? Or do you mean you have a front panel cover on your computer that won't open? If the disc drive tray won't open it could just be stuck, if you look closely at your disc drives front panel you'll see a small hole, take a paper clip our some thing about 3 inches long that will fit in the hole insert it into the hole you'll feel it bottom out if you push on the paper clip firmly your disc drive door will open, ( I would do this with the computer turned off) If there's a disc in there take it out if not just push the try back closed don't force it completely closed it will do that itself, now turn on your computer let it completely finish booting and see if it the drive works. If it does not it's probably time for a new disc drive. I hope this helps

Tried to do a recovery on my compaq the first


If you did not install a new drive and you are just trying to reinstall windows you may still ba able to do this by using the F10 F11 or F12 key during startup depending on the model. This is if you have a Vista or Newer XP machine. This should give you the choice of reinstalling windows from the secondary partition.
If this is a new drive, try installing with only one stick of ram if you have more than one stick. You may be having a problem with ram.
Hope this helps...
