Question about Dell XPS M1330 Laptop

2 Answers

MY LAPTOP WILL NOT ACCEPT MINI CDS.

I have a Dell XPS M1330 laptop. It has only a slot drive. There is no tray. I have attempted to insert the mini cd in this slot, but it is always ejected.
I know there is a adapter out there to play mini cds in a standard slot drive, I have seen it. I just don't know where I can purchase it.

I personally would be inclined to use an inexpensive external drive instead.

Dell specifically says not to put these small disks in, and replacing that slot load drive is very difficult (not like the standard drives on previous Dells.It would be very expensive to have a tech come out and replace it.

How to eject a cd in a dell XPS m1330 when the hardis has crashed and the disk inside isn't a operatindg system disc


Straighten a paper clip and insert it into a tiny hole below the CD drive tray. Push the paper clip gently into this hole and the CD tray will pop out slightly. Pull the tray out to the fully opened position so you can remove the disc.

I have a dell xps M1330. My 4 year old daughter somehow managed to get 2 cds inside the cd drive and now I can't get out. Need help! Thanks.


On the front face place of your CD player, next to the button you use to eject/open the CD caddy, you should see a very small hole. Using a paperclip, insert the paperclip and gently press in the paperclip. It should release the caddy.

I have a Dell XPS One and I am trying to insert a mini disc to download a program but it will not accept the mini disc in the CD Rom slot-what do I need to do?


The CD-Rom drive is not designed to accept the mini-disc. You may be able to buy an adapter that the mini-disk plugs into to make it spin like a full size disc. Unless you're talking about a different kind of mini disc, in which case you'll need a special drive.

Can't burn a CD with my Matshita drive, what do I do?


Have you tried different cds? If yes but persist try re-installing your burning software. If it still doesn't work I suspected your dvd rom drive is faulty. You might need to change it.

Note: no need to pay for a replacement if machine is under warranty.

Not ejecting the Mini CD


While the most popular option is to take it to a shop, it is possible, if you want to avoid any monetary charges, try using this site; http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1050337&tstart=0
While meant for Mac users, the commonality of the slot loading drive lets you get some good info from it.
However, if you don't mind, take it to a shop, to avoid possibly damaging components/endangering the warranty.

Just an important note, while most of them don't say so, the slot loading drives will only work with full sized disks due to its design.

You should notice in your cd tray a smaller cutout in the center. That is specifically for mini cds.

I want to play mini cds standard slot drive in laptop.


Since Philips has sold their name and US product lines to the junk dealer Funai, it might be available under their name now.
You could also purchase an external drive to expand your possibilities; they are on eBay for ~ $50 US.
