You may not be able to eject CDs or DVDs from your computer, either using the Windows Eject feature or by pressing the button on the drive. If the Recommended Solution above does not automatically return your drive to a working state, try these options:

  1. Attempt to Eject the CD in System Setup. Software may be interfering with the normal operation of the drive. Reboot the computer and tap the F1 key while at the Dell logo screen to enter System Setup. Then attempt to eject the CD tray using the button on the drive. If the drive ejects properly, there is a software conflict that needs to be resolved.


  2. Try a Diagnostic Startup. If the drive ejects normally in System Setup, try a Diagnostic Startup of Windows 7.
    1. In Windows, click Start, then in the Search box type msconfig and hit .

    2. Click Diagnostic Startup to load basic devices and services only.

    3. Reboot the computer and try to eject the drive when you get back into Windows 7.

    If the drive ejects correctly, look for burning software that may be controlling the drive and update it or uninstall it.

  3. Reseat the drive. The cabling of the drive may be loose, or the drive may not be seated correctly in the laptop. Refer to the Online User's Guide for your computer for information on reseating the cables or the drive in the computer.


  4. Update the optical drive firmware and the BIOS on the computer. In some instances the firmware of the drive may become corrupted or the BIOS may 'lose' the drive. Visit the Dell Drivers and Downloads website and input your Service Tag to get updates specific to your computer.

See if you can boot from a CD disk by pressing the key and then selecting boot from DVD/CD drive.
You should have a CD that came with the computer which has "Diagnostics and Utilities" listed
under "Contents".
If the computer boots with the CD and the CD disk is not being accessed and before, you have a
software issue.

Dell cd drive door won't open


CD/DVD Drive Tray problems
There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

CD or DVD does not stay in slot. Computer ejects it without reading.


The Dell™ XPS One™ A2010 system features an enhanced one-time boot menu that is easily accessible by pressing at the Dell™ logo during POST. The options in the boot menu are:
  • SATA:3M-WDC WD2500AAJS-75RYA0
  • CD.DVD:3S-TEAC DVD+/-RW DVW28
  • Network:IBA GE Slot 00C8 v1250
  • Dell Diagnostic Partition
Try to boot from a boot-able CD such as the Dell Resource CD. If it still ejects the CD then your CD/DVD drive needs to be replaced.

Dell xps m1330 dvd drive will not eject cd inside


Im a dell tech, and i hate those cdrom styles, but, that is what the consumer wants, so we make them. Try starting the machine, then press F2 to enter the BIOS. once in the bios, press the eject button. listen for any noises, (an attempt to eject). if you hear a sound, it means the drive should be capable of ejecting the disc, and perhaps the disc has not seated correctly. If the disc will not eject, you must contact Dell. This is from the DELL dcse site: " Optical Drive The XPS M1330 has a slot-loading optical drive instead of a conventional tray-loading module. There is no mechanical eject mechanism for the drive to eject stuck discs. This means you must replace the drive if a disc gets stuck in the drive. After replacing the drive, disassemble the old drive to remove the disc for the customer."
