You can open it with a paper clip through the tiny hole in the front panel. Insert the paper clip and push, the drive drawer will come out. As far as fixing goes these drives are so cheap they are considered throw away.

If the drive is trashed, just force the drawer open. If you don't want to do that, you should be able to disassemble the drive enough to get the disk out by removing screws... Sometimes the screws are underneath stickers, or warranty stickers, etc etc.

Drive door stuck and wont open


You can always try getting a jumbo paperclip, unbending it once, and inserting it into the small circular hole on the front of your drive. If your drive doesn't have the hole, then you'll have to probably take it to a repair shop.
Good Luck!
