Hi Ernie,

There should be a tiny little hole on the front of the CD drive, next to where you would usually press the button to eject it. Turn the laptop off (or at least wait until the CD stops spinning) and insert a straight paper clip into the hole. You will have to insert it perfectly straight and apply a little pressure. Doing this should manually pop the CD tray open.

Hope the helps!
David

Cd drive keeps ejecting


Does the it eject as soon as you close it or is there a delay?

Things to check in the meantime - The button on the drive itself (you may even have an extra on on your laptop too) to eject the drive isn't stuck or jammed in some way.

There are no foreign objects preventing the tray from closing properly.

If there is a disc in the drive it is seated in the tray correctly.

Hey my mac won't eject a disc. i have tried a lot of stuff and nothing happened. when i restart it the disk spins and doesn't sound stuck and when i used disk utility it said there was an error...


Resolution Tip: Make sure the CD or DVD disc is not in use. Quit all applications that are using files on the disc.
  1. Press the Media Eject key at the top-right corner of the keyboard.
  2. If that doesn't work, drag the disc's icon to the Trash.
  3. If that doesn't work, restart the computer, then hold down the mouse button or trackpad button while the computer is starting up, until the disc is ejected.
    To restart, choose Restart from the Apple menu.

My PC won't allow me to right click to choose the eject option for a CD. I want to know if there is a way to remove the CD manually.


The DVD drive itself has a small horizontal 'eject' button that you can press to eject the disc.
If the button fails the disc is stuck however the DVD drive will have a small hole near the eject button- about 2mm in diameter. Straighten a paperclip or similar and push into the hole until the disc drive mechanism releases and opens.

Thanks,

Disc stuck


The problem seems to be with your Drive. Just try and remove it out from your machine and then open it up.

If it is still under warranty i suggest you take it to them for a new one, or you can aswell try the paper clip trick but now instead get a longer thin metal pin type of object that will get in more.

Then try and remove the CD out with a supporting Screwdriver incase you need to pull it out.
