There should be a pin sized hole on the front of the drive. Press that with a pin and you are golden :)

Why wont my cd drive work

see this and fix it. God bless you
Turn on your computer and open the CD drive by pressing a small button on the front of the drive. Use a can of compressed air to clean the lens by spraying a few squirts of the air into the drive. This will fix disc skipping if there was dust on the lens.

  • 2 Place a CD drive cleaner into the disc drive. This is a disc that is specifically designed to clean CD drives. Allow it to run for a few minutes, and then extract the disc from the optical drive.

  • 3 Click the "Start" button and then click on the "All Programs" option. Click on the "Windows Update" icon and then click the "Check for Updates" button on the left side of the screen. Click the "Install Updates" button at the bottom of the screen to update the drivers for your CD drive. Restart your computer for the driver changes to take effect.
  • 4 Unplug the power cable from your computer and use a screwdriver to open the tower door. Locate the CD drive cables inside the computer. Make sure that the CD drive cables have not loosened. If the cables are loose, then the drive will not operate properly.

    The disk tray wont stay closed the open/close button flashes and opens again.

    It seems there might be something jamming your disc drive from completely going in, or your disc drive has fallen off the track and might need to be realigned.

    Disc drive wont open. i pressed the eject button on my keyboard but it makes a clunk sounds but wont open.

    This wil show you how to take it apart if that becomes necessary. But try this instead. First hold the eject button down for 5 seconds. I that fails look for a tiny hole near the disc slot. Use a straightened paper clip and push it in the hole firmly. This should eject the disc. Another option is to use firmware to eject the disc. Follow these directions: To eject a disc with Open Firmware commands, follow these steps:
    1. Restart the computer.
    2. Immediately after the startup sound, press and hold the key combination Command-Option-O-F.
      Note: The Command key has the Apple and (commandkeysymbol.gif) icons on it.
    3. Release the keys when you see a white screen that says "Welcome to Open Firmware."
    4. At the prompt, type: eject cd
    5. Press Return, then wait a few seconds. The disc drive should eject any disc that is present, and "ok" appears behind your command when the action is complete.
    6. Type: mac-boot
    7. Press Return.
    8. Your computer should now start up normally.

    Disk drive wont read

    you may need a new disc drive or you may just need to clean the laser in it.
    if you remove the disc drive and turn it over you will see the laser, just clean it with a non static cloth.

    Xbox 360 disc drive

    To april23

    what has most likely happened is that the magnet which holds disks in place has dis-lodged and is now stuck to the roof of the dvd drive. Unfortunately the only way to resolve this would be to open up the xbox 360 and open up the dvd drive to fix.

    So if you're not confident at this or in doubt in any way I'd contact Microsoft first if it's still under warranty, if not then it's a case of opening up the drive yourself I'm afraid.

    Note. Does the drive attempt to spin up when you put a disk in?

    Or does it just make small noises then nothing except "open tray" on screen?
