Look and see if there is a tiny hole somewhere on the face of the drive. If so, you can use something like a straightened out paperclip and insert it carefully into the hole to release the drive door.

How do I get the disc drive of a dvd recorder to open after getting out the disc and resetting the machine?


Go back through the release process you did the first time to remove the stuck disk. it appears that part of the mechanism that moves the drive did not engage again.

Opening the drive on the computer or physically opening the drive enclosure box? 500GB is so small it's not worth spending too much time on getting it working.

How do i open a disk drive to a acer aspire e touch


well it sounds to me like you are just trying to open the drive to insert a disk ? go to "computer" or "my computer" on the desktop, double click to open. you should see your hard drive "c" and cd/dvd drive "d" listed. right click the "d" drive, left click eject, voila. if you have more than one hard drive or a partitioned drive there might well be more drive letters but your cd/dvd drive will be marked as such. alternatively click "start", bottom left of desktop, click "computer" and once again you should see your drives listed. physically there should be , on the cd/dvd drive drawer itself a small button, push it once to open. failing all else, there should be a very small hole in the drive drawer, using say a paper clip or similar, insert into the small hole and push reasonably firmly, this should release the drawer manually and the drive will open. hope that helps. good luck.

DVD Drive door will not always open. No obstructions. DVD Drive light flashes, but door will not open. Is ther some software conflict?


The door drive motor may be frozen.
  1. Shut down the computer and unplug it.
  2. Open the computer casing to access the DVD drive from inside.
  3. Disconnect the cable on the DVD drive leaving only the power supply connected to it.
  4. Turn on the computer.
  5. Push the OPEN/CLOSE button on the DVD drive. If it does not open, the drive is broken or the door drive motor is defective. If it opens, push the button repeatedly to open and close the door repeatedly to release any frozen part.
  6. If the door does not stuck anymore, shut down the computer.
  7. Reconnect the cable and turn on the computer.

Was able to put CD in drive but can not get drive to open and take CD out. Tried to restart computer but still will not release.


There may be a small pinhole on the front of the CD drive- push it with an opened paperclip, and it will release the drive.

Unable to open Pendrive


Your pen drive is infected by a virus/worm. I have two solutions for this -   > If you have WinRAR software, just open up the pen drive using this and delete "autorun.inf" from it.  OR  > Use any good antivirus software and scan your pen drive, and disinfect the pen drive from any virus/worms. Remove your pen drive, and insert it again. It'll work fine.
