Where is the eject button to open my disc drive?

In some laptops you press and hold the control key and then the disc eject button (its a key on the keyboard).

Dell dvd drawer won't close

Replace the drive. Seems to be a firmware issue with it or the eject switch is damaged.

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.

I can't open my disc drive on my Acer Aspire 5820T without using a pin. How do I get the eject button to work?

I suggest that you can use the other method to eject: press start and go to my computer, select the disk drive and you should see an eject option in the menu bar.Remember that disk drives are subject to computer admin and do not respond quickly to a button press, especially if a disk process in taking place...

I have a dell vostro 1510 and can't get my cd out. When I click on the eject button, it lights up, but nothing happens.

What you might try is going to "My Computer" or "Computer", right clicking on the CD drive, and clicking "Eject". If that doesn't work, go find yourself a fairly small paper clip, stretch it out, and use it to poke that little hole on the disc drive itself that is a manual eject device.

I'm having problems ejecting cd's from laptop after they're done burning.


If you go into the computer and open it look for the cd/dvd drive
highlight and right click it and go down to the properties
now click on recording up in the top right hand side of that box
then go down to and put a tick in the box where it says
Automatically eject the disc after a master burn then restart the laptop
this should then automatically eject after a burn

if it don't then

click on your computer icon
it should open it up and show you your hard drive/s
also the cd/dvd drives
if you highlight the cd/dvd drive then right click it and go down to eject hopefully this will eject it
also there is a small pin hole just beneath the push eject switch on the drive itself if you push something thin in there gently but firmly it should also eject the drive

hope this has helped you
please let us know if fixya has fixed it for ya

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.

Disc drive trouble

Have you tried a system restore to a date before you downloaded the file. If it still persists go to my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and go down the list to cd/dvd drives, click on the '+' and right click on your listed drive and select uninstall. restart the notebook and then the drive will be re installed with drivers automatically.
