Is it not ejecting? Or it is not reading any CD at all?
If it is blinking but not ejecting then try a Paperpin, insert it gently into the Hole present just at side of Flashing light, it will eject out
Otherwise, slap it gently over the top of CPU Cabinet, it will open out.
If it is not reading CD at all, then check the entries in Dev. Manager for CD Drive and let me know.
Note: Dont Vote Till you reach to some definite solution.

Dell cd drive door won't open


CD/DVD Drive Tray problems
There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

My CD/DVD drive is not reading Rosetta Stone - Espanol Edition. It stars and spins, but then stops. OS: Vista SP2 Disk Drive: Unknown RAM: 3 GB - DDR2


Try playing a music CD to see if it works. Then try playing a DVD ( a DVD movie ) and see if that works. If the CD works and the DVD doesn't then your CD/DVD drive is probably the problem and needs to be replaced.

Your CD drive has an internal failure which is usually the laser head. It would be cheaper to replace the drive or use your DVD drive to read CD's then to have the laser head replaced in the CD drive. The disk tray motor system is not connected with the read write system in the drive and the tray ejecting or loading a disk is not an indication of the health of the drives logic system or laser head.

CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?


CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem

Problem in cd-dvd drive of hp laptop


This is not a driver problem. It is almost certainly a problem with yourdvd/cd player. If it is reading dvd's, then it means that the driver is installed. You will have to take your laptop in and possibly get the cd/dvd player replaced.

Cd/dvd dosen work pleace geimy a solution


Hi,
i cant get you. cd/dvd is not working or cd/dvd rom drive is not working ? To work cd/dvd rom drive properly, Make sure the Jumper settings of the drive is set to slave or else remove all the jumpers from the cd/dvd rom drive, it automatically sets to slave. Check the power cable and the FRC(flat ribbon cable) of the cd/dvd rom drive. Hopefully it should work. Thank you.
