To manually open the CD Drive, straighten a paper clip and insert it into a tiny hole in the front of your CD drive and push the paper clip gently into the drive and the tray should then pop open.
Open and close this several times, then insert a disc into the drive and see if it will read the disc.
If not the drive is dead and needs to be replaced.

My laptop aspire 5740 is not able to read the dvd & cd...so i am not able to installed any softwares though cd & dvd..please solve the problem..


Try opening your disk tray and cleaning the lens with a tissue and all of the drive from dust. If it still won't read you may have to buy a new optical drive as your current one has broken.
Have fun :)

Dvd won't eject. It lights up flashing like wants to open. I tried to eject dvd every way possible ie., computer link, etc


All CD / DVD drives have a Eject Pin Hole. The only thing we need is a paper clip to use it


krishtam1_dh_8.jpg
All we have to do is bend it at the first curve 180 degrees (straitening it out). Then take the second curve and bend it 90 degrees. Now we need to locate the Eject Pin Hole.


krishtam1_dh_9.jpg
Laptop - Notebook CD / DVD drives:
The trays on laptops/notebooks are spring loaded, so all that is needed is to release the locking mechanism. You do not have to insert the paper clip as far as with a desktop CD / DVD drive, as you are not connecting to the gearing under the tray. Gently insert the paper clip into the Eject Pin Hole. Once you feel it make contact, gently push in and the tray will eject immediately. Once done, gently push the tray back inward until it locks back into place.

Desktop CD / DVD drives:
Gently insert the modified paper clip into the Eject Pin Hole until you feel it make contact with the gear underneath the tray. Firmly pressing inward, you will notice the tray to start to move out. Press inward until you have enough room to get your finger under the tray and then pull it out the rest of the way. If you can only get a small portion of the tray out, you can use the other end of the paper clip to gently pry open the tray enough to get your finger under it. Once done, gently push back the tray to the closed position. It will close firmly when the system is powered up.

Door will not open


make sure the drive is not reading a disk, because if its spinning it can break when you do this process.

look for a hole in the front of the drive, get a paper clip and stick it in there all the way, the tray will now eject or if its a slot loading drive the cd will eject

D V D disc stuck in my computer


So you've pressed the eject button on the DVD Drive and tried it by clicking eject from the windows.
Ok here are the most common problems:
1. The CD was improperly placed and it got stuck in the tray. To solve this you can either open up your DVD rom or you can try this: There should be a very small hole on the tray from where you insert the disk, take a pin or something that goes in and try to shake it so that it settles and then try ejecting.
2. The motor which controls the movement is faulty, you need to change the motor very carefully not damaging any other item on the DVD rom.
Hope this helps.
Please feel free to ask me any further.
