  1. Press "inward" gently against the CD drive cover, if there is no eject button on it or next to it on the body of the computer.
  2. The drive should pop open and allow you to remove the CD.
  3. Failing that, click open the computer icon. The CD drive should be one of the drives showing in the window.
  4. Right click, using your mouse, on the CD drive icon.
  5. One of the options in the pop up window will say Eject.
  6. Click on it. The drive should open and allow you to remove the CD.

Can't find CD icon is missing from one computer


Windows Key-E will bring up windows explorer which should show your list of available drives.
If this doesn't show your CD drive then try removing CD from drive. Does the disc tray open? If so then reboot system without disc and try the above method to find cd-drive.
If this doesn't work you may need to involve more hands on trouble-shooting.
Thanks

Windows: USB Dongle shows up in Device Manager as Disk Drives: KVM vmDisk USB Device, and DVD/CD-ROM Drives: KVM vmDisk USB Device. Steals drive letters I need. How to get around this? have uninstalled...


Hi Bruce:
Sorry to hear that you are having problems. If you still want to use the device, you can assign drive letters to you other devices that do not disrupt the use of you KVM switch. Using device manager, you can change drive letters on all drives except your hard drive, usually drive 0.

Right click on you "My Computer" Icon

A menu will open

Chose "Manage"

The Computer Management window will open


The Computer Management window is broken down into 3 sections. The first section on the left side of the window shows a menu. Disk Management is on the lower portion of the menu.

The right side is separated into two sections, top and bottom. The top portion shows a list of active drives on the computer. The lower portion shows all drives connected to the computer. CD or DVD drives that have not disk will not show as active drives on the top section, but can be seen in the lower section.

The lower section will show the drive description, drive size and drive condition (online or off line) in small box on the left side of that section. Disk drives will designate a "Drive" and a number. Drive 0 is usually your internal hard drive. Then it would list drive 1, drive 2, etc, depending on how many internal and external drive sources you have connected to your computer. Then it will list your CD drives and generally show their drive letter assignments.

Next to the smaller section described above, is a larger section which shows the driver letter, size of the driver and condition (if working correctly will show "healthy")

This is the area you can right click and get a menu that will allow you to open, explore, mark the partition as active, change the driver letter, format the drive or delete a partition. (A note of caution here. Changing the driver letter on your main hard drive partition will cause windows to stop functioning. The main hard drive, or hard drive partition, is normally given the letter "C".) A hard drive may show two or more partitions with separate drive letters designated for each partition.


As for uninstalling the KVM device, if you want to completely remove all files from your computer, do a search (off the start menu) and search for *KVM vmDisk USB Device".

The delete all the files that are found in the search.


Let me know if I can assist you further or you need any clarification on my instructions.

HP Compaq notebook with a philips dvd-ram won't read


If you can see the CD Drive icon in My computer, it shows that at least Windows recognises the drive. If you are unable to see the drive listed in explorer (not the cd name but the actual drive icon), then please post a reply.

Other than that, you are describing what I think may be a faulty drive. If you open the case, check to see if the drive cable is in good contact with the connector and motherboard.

Right-mouse-click on the CD's icon, and choose "Explore",
