Cd drive (or whatever the thing you put your cds in is called)

I have a problem. I put a cd into the cd drive, but when i wanted to retrieve it, it wouldn't come out. I pressed the eject button and nothing happened.You know how there's a flap that opens before the cd holder comes out and reveals the cd, well that wouldn't open either. Please Help!!!

Its a common problem with CDs. Check that your CD drive can PLAY CDs. If so either the CD drives optical head is dirty or your CD pack are low quality. CDs damage real easy. Try putting another CD, another brand or you must use CD doctor-something like that. Did that help

CD will not open. When I opened from my computer and double clicked on CDSETUP.EXE file it asked me for a password which I do not know. can you help?


Hi brengaynor,

When you say CD will not open are you talking about the CD drive tray not opening at all (i.e. you're not able to insert any CDs into the PC) or the program/game CD that you inserted into the computer is not installing or playing?

If the problem is the latter one then I suggest that you try other program/game CDs to see if you're able to play or install those CDs. If they work while this one CD you're trying to install doesn't then maybe you're clicking on the wrong setup file or otherwise there is another procedure to install the program/game into the computer. Consult the manual of the program or the game manual for proper instructions on installing the game. The password can also be on the CD case or manual itself so check it out. Otherwise, visit there website or call up the manufacturer of the game or program you're trying to install/use for further help.

But if your problem is the first one, then to troubleshoot this you have to check if the drive is even getting power when you turn on the computer (blinking light/flashing light), if not then you may need to open up your computer chassis and check the connections of your CD drive for desktops now for laptops you may need to just unscrew the drive from the system and take the whole thing out. Reseat the cables at the back of the drive and even swap power connectors with the hard drive then try again for desktop systems now for laptops you just need to check the drive for any damage and just firmly put it back in place in the drive bay and screw it in place. Power on and try the eject button, to see if it works. If that still doesn't work, and the drive is still not getting any power, then you may have to replace the CD drive itself.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

Your CD might be defective. Try to open it in other drives or computer. Some drives would not accept CDs burned from other drives.

My pioneer cd/dvd/rw-dvr 111D will not recognize a cd in the drive, usually this happens with game cds. it does recognize some,but some it does not. i have put the same disc into another computers cd/dvd...


My cd drive does this as well not a good thing but I have found that if you put a disc you know it will read in then anydisc you want it to read it should read it. Mine only does it every now and then. I have also found that if just after the cd door closes if you give it a tap on the cd door it will read the disc try it it might work for you. I have taken mine to a repairer and the drive is operating fine and they could not figure out what was wrong for it to do that and yes it did do it for them to.

My cd- rw wont work when i put cds in there it wont work


it's possible that you do not have the drive enabled for recording, or that your drivers are not up to date. Also ensure you are using the correct media for your drive.

Try this:

To verify that the drive is enabled for recording:
click start -> My Computer
right click on your CD-RW drive and click properties.
in the properties window that appears there should be a "recording" tab, select that tab.
Ensure that "enable CD recording on this drive" is checked and a location is selected for the temporary files (normally stored on the C drive or whatever drive you have windows installed on).

If the above does not work, obtain the most recent drivers for your CD-RW drive from the manufacturer's website.

CD ROM Won't work


First you want to make sure the CD you are using is good. Try a different CD-ROM, a known good one. If a different CD-ROM is readable then the problem is with your CD media and not the CD-ROM Drive. If another known good CD does not work then the problem is with the drive.

To fix this you must purchase a new CD-ROM drive and install it. Newegg.com has great deals. If you only want to read CDs and are not interested in burning then you can get a name brand CD-ROM drive for around $15.00, but if you need to burn as well the CD+-RW will run you about $30.00.

If you are using Windows XP then it is pretty simple to install the new CD-ROM drive.
