I've seen and come across cd-roms where cd's have broken (or in most cases exploded/shattered). In one case the drive flew open and bits of cd flew across a classroom, in most cases the drive remains shut (even the tray can get jammed).

This problem is usually caused by a flaw on the cd itself, a scratch or mark on the cd causes it to 'wobble' and due to the speeds cd-roms spin cd's they come off the 'spindle' inside (all that holds it on is a magnet).

I have taken cd-roms apart and removed all the cd parts and the drive has worked perfectly afterwards. Other times the drive has needed to be replaced, so i would say its purely luck if your drive isn't damaged in some way.

Although the problem could have been your drive. Without being able to get the drive ejecting and spinning cd's again you'll never know... just make sure you don't use an important cd to test it with!

Acer CD is not getting ejeccted


The mechanism is physicall jammed.
Take a Norwegian paper-clip, and straighten one end.
Push that end into the small hole in the faceplate of the CD-drive.
Push until you feel resistance, and then push another 1/4 inch (10 mm).
The door should "unlock" -- gently pull the tray the rest of the way open, and remove any disk.
Then, it's time to spend $40, to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.]

The door on my cd rom cant not open when i eject, i dont hear the motor but the light shine just at start up


Look on the front of your cd-rom, there should be a small hole somewhere just under the tray portion. Turn off your machine (to avoid possible short-circuit issues) and use a thin piece of wire (ie: a straightened paper clip) and insert it into this hole. Push it gently, you will be able to feel the unit unlocking itself and the tray will open slightly. Now you can use your fingers to pull the tray open. Be gentle when opening, you don't want to mess up the gearing.

Cd drive will not go back in


Push it in. Try open it, if it opens. Try close it.

Success.

(It may be that it's on a security stop for the parts of the cd, they may be inside. If your unsure, take it out and shake it gentally, if there is rattles, buy a new one or bring it to a local computer shop.)

CD ROM is jammed-wont open


This has happened to me. Sometimes when I'm in a hurry I'll place a CD or DVD in the tray and start to close it without making sure that the disk is seated flat in the tray. If it's ****-eyed the CD wil shatter when the tray is closed. The only way to remove the pieces inside the CD drive is to take apart the CD drive. Might be easier just to replace the unit. They run from about $25.00 to $75.00. One other note: You can try to open the tray manually by inserting the end of a paper clip into a small hole on the front bezel of the drive.

My cd-rom


Hi, You should be able to get a paper clip, preferably one of the bigger ones and open it out so you have a straight section of wire, then at the fron of the CD drive you will find a very small hole. Carefully slip the wire into the hole as far as it will go then you will need to push against the manual release with reasonable pressure and the door will come open. Remove your disk and close the door and restart the machine. It may be that the disc became stuck for some reason and froze the drive. Once the offending disc is removed it will hopefully come back online.
If it doesn't come back then the CD drive may have failed, fortunately they are not too expensive to replace anymore.
