Re: CD-RW Door won't open with disc inside
You need to push harder in the pinhole, and do it while the power is off. That pinhole goes directly to a gear. If the gear is stuck and will not turn at all the drive will have to be disassembled to recover the cd.

Do you mean you cannot physically open the drive door? There is usually a small pinhole above the CD/DVD opening. If you bend a paper clip straight and poke it into the hole, that should release the door.
on the left side of the front pannel just under the drawer you will see a pinhole.turn your cd unit upside down and insert a straightened paperclip in the hole keeping it straight as possible,the drawer should open enough to allow you to grip it .
if no luck you will have to remove the case top and manually remove the disc..
hope this helps.....Len..
If you need to open the drive doors, there is a small 1 mm pinhole that should be underneath the drive doors. Using a paper clip or safety pin, insert this into the pinhole and the door should crack open. Then test the drive door's eject button. If it works, they should be fine. If it doesn't you may need to replace the drives themselves due to mechanical wear and tear. Given the model number of the unit you provided, this unit may be out of warranty.

To open this drive you can open My Computer and right click your DVD drive and select eject. You can also open any CD/DVD drive by taking a paper clip (or something the size of one) and inserting it inside the tiny pinhole near the eject button on the drive.
Yes, this drive is basically dead. You can find pretty cheap prices for new drives at www.pricewatch.com If the drive door closes on a cd or dvd that you want and it will not open back up, use a straightened paperclip and push it into the little hole near the door on the drive, the door will pop open then.
did you try to do the emergency eject ?
jewellers driver in drive pinhole.
use the eject method again, Computer powered Off. Open the drawer and push it back in firmly.
This is an eject button, make/break switch problem.
Also try ejecting the drive from my computer/Right click with mouse ( CD Drive ) Eject.
And ensure the 4 Pin Molex ( Red-Black-Black-Yellow ) is the right way round. Yellow usually faces to the outside of the casing.
Double check the Ribbon Cable Connector is installed Correctly ( 40-80 Strand IDE ) sometimes if these are not fitted squarely Or pushed in hard enough. Can cause a Problem.
Also try the emergency eject procedure on The Drive. Small jewellers screwdriver Or Needle, insert into the drives faceplate ( pinhole in drives faceplate drawer ) push to open dvd drawer. pull out drawer Gently. And push back in. This ocassionally works for a stcking Drawer/eject mechanism.
Finally try the drive without a disk in ( open/eject Or Close )
