Question about E-Machines emachines (emachinees) CD-ROM Drive

Cd rom drive won't open

When i push the eject button the drive flashes once and makes a noise like it's trying to read a disk and then stops, the light at the bottom of the drive then flashes rapidly 5 or 6 times and then nothing happens. Both drives do this (cd writer also)
Please get back with me so I can install my new software!

I had the same problem i solved mine by using a knife and using the tip of the blade to push up and pull out on the drive while it tries to open and drive opened with out a hitch.. it turned out to be a gear problem with the drive.

  • shut the computer off..
close to the eject button you will find a small pin hole
straighten out a paper clip and push it strongly into the hole and the drivr will pop open.. even if just slightly,, just pull out the draw and remove the disc.. close draw firmly and turn on pc..

'

the pin hole is there trust me..

CD-ROM not opening


The eject mechanism is driven by a seperate belt. You'r's is worn or broken, however, there is a small pinhole in the face of the player that you may stick a paperclip into and the tray will open.

I cannot get a dvd to play, nor can eject it


I think you have CD RAM and DVD ROM i had also the problem of read dvd but i buy CD/DVD RAM Now my drive is working properly and successfully
if you have CD RAM and DVD ROM then change it to CD/DVD ram because in case of CD RAM and
DVD ROM it may read CD but not DVD but sometimes it can read DVD also but when we copy data
to computer it may freeze or give us error so i give you one suggest to buy a new CD/DVD RAM

Make sure you feel some resistance when pushing, also try by going to My Computer, righ-click the CDRom and select eject (in case the eject button is broken.

My cd-rom won't read the disk that i am putting in.


If you have a can of air, blow it softly into the cd-rom to make sure dust isn't causing the laser to act weird. Then try a couple of different cd's to be sure and if the problem still exists, then the cd-rom is bad and it will have to be replaced.

CD/DVD drive stuck CLOSED and NO pin hole


Use my computer and select the drive (eg drive E:). From pull down menu "File" select "eject". While the disk door attempts to open (hear slight movement of tray) massage the door with your fingers. This is done by smoothing out the across front door panel with your finger tips and pushing in and releasing pressure from door. Door should slide open partially and close again. Repeat. The eject button nearside the disc tray doesn't seem to work as well as selecting "File" and "Eject" from the menu. Something to do with the door cycle is less with the direct eject button.

Dell XPS 1300 Cd rom problem


This is a CD drive mechanical problem. All CD/DVD drives have built in error checking for mechanical failures. When you insert the CD/DVD, it tries to grab and seat the disc, then attempts to spin it up and then read it. If the grab and seat function fails for any reason, the drive will eject the tray so you can try again. You should contact Dell support and get the drive replaced. Has the drive ever worked? or did it just stop working one day?

DVD/CD ROM does not open


There should be a small hole on the front panel of the DVD-ROM. Take a paper clip and insert it into the hole and push to open the tray. If the DVD-ROM tray continues to malfunction, you'll need to replace it. DVD-ROMS run anywhere from $25.00 to $75.00.

Well...first lets make sure the drive still can physically open.

http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e40/freddyhard/CD13.jpg

There in the picture will show you where the manual eject button is. Use a paperclip and push the button in the hole. Once the drive is open enough for you to pull the tray, go ahead and pull it as far as it will come out. It will stop, and it shouldn't come all they way unattached from the rest of the unit.

Go ahead and take any cd or dvds that was in the drive out and turn your computer back on.

Once into windows, push the regular eject button and the drive should close the door itself. Let it sit for a second or two, and try hitting the eject button again. 9 times out of 10, that usually fixes my drives.

Hope this helps!
