Question about E-Machines emachines (emachinees) CD-ROM Drive
What to do if a cd broke into small pieces in your cd rom?
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!
