DVD does`t open. It have one disc inside and I need it. Exist one software command (by pc) that permit to open the dvd without use the open key? Thank you, Jorge Lopez

Any operating system that believes the disk is in use may restrict the disk bay from opening by the use of the drive button or a soft eject keystroke. In Windows this most commonly happens when the system believes itself to be actively accessing or installing from the CD/DVD drive when actually the disk is unreadable, the drive has become unmounted, or a software product has locked the drive. In this case, there is no soft key command to force it to open.

You essentially have three choices:
  1. Wait for the application using the drive to time out and then eject the disk normally
  2. Force quit the application or software that is monopolizing the drive then eject the disk.
  3. Restart the computer to terminate any processes currently monopolizing the drive.
  4. Force a paper clip in the small access hole to manually eject the drive. (I know this third is exactly what you didn't want to do)

When I plug it into the PC it does not show as connected

Try it in another computer (Mac, desktop, notebook).

It could either be the USB-to-disk-drive interface that has failed,
or the USB cable that has failed,
or the disk-drive inside the casing that has failed.

Try a different USB cable.
Open the casing, and remove the disk-drive, and temporarily connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a computer, to see if it can be detected.

Dvd won't open program

Does your dvd drive opens other dvd's if it does, that means your dvd has gone bad but if your dvd drive fails to play any dvd's than it's a problem with your dvd drive.

Best way to test it would be to insert a new empty dvd and see if your dvd drive opens it.

CD and DVD drives

cd rom drives are pretty straightforward. if they dont open, there's no way to fix it since the units are non user serviceable. replacement is the only option. :)
