Question about Samsung Int. IDE CD-ROM 52x Beige Bulk (SH152AEBUWSHC522CBEWE)
Should be a tiny hole in the front just below the cd drawer (make sure its not the indicator light hole)
Insert a paper clip or thin piece of wire (about the same diameter as the hole) into this hole and you should feel a solid piece maybe 1/2 to 3/4 inch in. Push firmly on the wire and the cd cdrawer should open out a bit. Gently pull it further and remove the cd.
Reboot your pc with the drawer left out - it should close by itself - if it closes OK then try opening it with the front button. If that works try another cd in it. ANy drams with get just get a new dvd/cd player or burner as the cd player is not worth repairing or replacing due to the cheap cost of dvd player/burners.
If it closes ok then try opening it with the button -
