Press and hold the eject button for around 15 seconds, this resets the cd drive and will fix your problems. Hope this helps

My ibm intellistation z pro: nothing appears on the screen no ibm sign at start up no nothing also if i try to open the disk drive it won't open which seems weird


maybe a disc stuck in the drive? if you pull down outter door of disc drive (unless you can see the front of the disc tray already) there is a tiny hole on front of disc tray, large enough to get a paper clip wire into, that will release the tray and pop it open

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.

Hello, my otiplex Gx620 cd/dvd drive will not eject the cd it in. Is there any way of releasing it ? many thanks hannah x


Hi and welcome to fixya!

Just follow these few steps and it should fix the problem (but if the problem keeps on happening, it maybe time to change the ODD).
    • 1 Locate the optical drive that contains your stuck disk. You'll see a small hole on or immediately below the disk tray.
    • 2 Straighten the paper clip.
    • 3 Insert the straight end of the paper clip in the hole and push. You should feel it catch inside the latch mechanism.
    • 4 Pull the paper clip out gently. The disk tray will come with it.
    • 5 Remove the CD or DVD and close the tray.

My son just put 2 dvds in ps3 and now they are stuck?


Try to press the Eject Button for 20 seconds and i think that will do a force eject
the other way is the paper-clip! Straightend a large paper clip, then with some needle-nose pliers created a tiny L-shaped hooked (about 3/16 or 1/8 of an inch). Inserted the hook side of the clip into the disc slot along the edge. Carefully moved the clip around until I located the hole in the disc, then gently pulled the disc out. Piece of cake, took about 2 minutes!

How do we eject a disk from a intel core 2 duo


Do you mean that a CD or DVD is stuck in the CD/DVD drive?
If it does not eject by pushing the eject buttom on the front of the CD/DVD drive, then straighten a paper clip and insert it into the tiny hole just below the drive tray and push the paper clip gently in the hole. The drive tray will pop out slightly, then grab the tray and pull it out until you can remove the CD or DVD disk.

Disk is stuck in CD player and won't eject


Straighten out a stout paper clip and insert it into the very small hole on the front face of the drive. Press it in firmly and this will unlock the tray for you. Gently pull the tray out and remove the disk. Reboot the computer and test the drive.

Stuck disc


Most disk drives have a tiny hole below the tray. I straightened paper clip pushed carefully into that hole should unlock the tray and push it forward slightly. Once unlocked, it is OK to GENTLY pull it the rest of the way out. The disc can then be removed.

if it won't open, turn off the console and remove the faceplate and try to eject the button. if it still won't open get a paper clip and straighten it out. you need to locate a small hole that exactly fits a straightened paper clip. it's located just below the silver lining of the disc tray about one and a half (1 1/2") inch from the left side of the disc tray. insert the paper clip into that hole and it should pop up the disc tray enough for you to be able to pull the disc tray all the way.

if it doesn't work there are still 2 more small holes that you can locate. the 2nd one is just beside the first hole and the 3rd one is just under the second X on the XBOX 360 text on the disc tray. try those two holes if the first hole doesn't work.

CD stuck in ps3 horrible noise cant get out HELP!!!


I had the same symptoms. The reason to my problem was that my 2 year old has pushed *three* disks into the console. I got them out through the following, admittedly pretty weird, approach: I hit the eject button, while gently prodding with another disk into the slot (at a slight upward angle). I could feel the disks inside the console rotating or vibrating as I was *gently* touching them with the fourth disk and hitting eject repeatedly. Somehow, the gentle prodding made one of the disk come out a bit, so I could pull it out easily. (I was pretty surprised when a second disk came out, and then a third.)
