The Drive no longer works when plugged into a laptop. Placed a DVD in the slot (non-tray) and now it will not come out. The release button does not work and there is no pinhole to poke with a paperc

Don't know this drive in particular, but here are some ideas.

Try holding down the release button for a reeeeally long time (120 seconds, maybe?)

See if you can get the pre-boot diagnostics to eject it:
1) Boot up the machine
2) At the Dell Logo, Press the 'P' key and 'F12' at the same time. This will give you power-up options.
3) Arrow down to Diagnostics and Press Enter.
4) Wait for about a 10 minute test to finish. You will be prompted to interact with the video color test, just Press 'Y' to confirm you are looking at colors.
5) When prompted with 'No problems have been found...' Press 'N' to not continue with the memory test. 'Booting Diagnostic Utility Partition' will appear.
6) Press any key on the keyboard to continue.
7) When prompted to choose an option, arrow to 'Test System' and Press the Spacebar. The 'Main Menu - Service Tag ' will appear.
8) Arrow to 'Custom Test' and Press Spacebar to select the option. The 'Customize' interface will appear.

At this point you have two options which may work for you:

9a) Double-Click on the 'Keyboard' test.
10a) when prompted with 'This test checks the keyboard...' Press OK to continue.
11a) Using the keys on the keyboard, starting with 'Esc', Press on the keyboard each highlighted key, until you finally get to the Finesse Eject button. Your disk will automatically eject!
12a) Press ESC twice to exit the test, and then Click on the 'X' to close the testing interfaces that appear. Ultimately, your system will reboot.
9b) Select CD/DVD test
10b) After getting to the part of the test that tells you to eject the CD, click "OK" to continue, just click "OK", it will do it 3 times.
11b) Then it will say "IT'S GOING TO TEST THE EJECT FEATURE OF THE DRIVE" that's when it will eject out.
12a) Press ESC twice to exit the test, and then Click on the 'X' to close the testing interfaces that appear. Ultimately, your system will reboot.

If none of that works, it's time to get physical.
1) Peek in the slot and see if you can see a release button inside. Here's a video that shows what to do if you can find a release button:
(the video says the button will be 12 mm from the left side of the opening, but that is model-specific, I think).
2) Peek in the slot and see if you can see a metal tab holding the disk in.
a) If so, see if you can move it.
b) If not, try sticking a piece of cardboard with double-side tape to see if you can stick it to the disk and pull it out.

I need to know how can I boot from my usb flash thanks

You need to know if your motherboard can do this option.
Enter setup otion generaly when you turn your computer on press the DEL key and you are in the BIOS SETUP configuration. Go to the BOOT SEQUENCE and if it is possible choose USB option.Place this option on the first place with the UP or DOWN keys. For exemple fist boot drive : USB second boot drive HDD ,...
You must format your USB device as SYSTEM ! and have the system installed on it. You can find on the Web a light version of WINDOWS XP called LIGHT to put it on your USB device I think it is an USB flash drive, Is it?
If it is an external HDD you can install the entire system of Windows and boot by it bur select the right boot sequence in the BIOS setup.
