Re: laptop Disk Drive want reject.
If you mean the CD or DVD drive,,,then you can take a paper clip and bend it straight,,then put the paper clip into the tiny hole in the front of the CD tray and gently push,,,this will open the tray enough for you to grip it by hand and pull it out the rest of the way.

are you burning a cd or dvd? burning a cd is pretty easy...windows will do most of the work for you. put a blank cd in your cd rom/ dvd burner drive. it will ask you what you want to do with the blank cd...vista usually asks you to format the disk...select ok.....a blank box will pop up....drag and drop your files to be burned into the blank box.....once you are done putting your media onto the disc....eject the disk...before the drive opens a box at the bottom of the screen says that the disc is being prepared for use on other computers. when it ejects, it should be done....you can try to put it back in to the cd drive and see if your data/media files are on the disc. ......now burning a dvd is alot more complicated....do you have software for burning dvd media? if you do, they have help me files and tutorials........some more good advice....youtube also shows good tutorial vids on burning. just type in "burn a cd or dvd".
Any operating system that believes the disk is in use may restrict the disk bay from opening by the use of the drive button or a soft eject keystroke. In Windows this most commonly happens when the system believes itself to be actively accessing or installing from the CD/DVD drive when actually the disk is unreadable, the drive has become unmounted, or a software product has locked the drive. In this case, there is no soft key command to force it to open.
You essentially have three choices:
Wait for the application using the drive to time out and then eject the disk normally
Force quit the application or software that is monopolizing the drive then eject the disk.
Restart the computer to terminate any processes currently monopolizing the drive.
Force a paper clip in the small access hole to manually eject the drive. (I know this third is exactly what you didn't want to do)
There is a small pinhole in the face of the dvd drive. Use a paperclip to poke into the hole. It will force an eject of the dvd drive. You can also explore the computer, right mouse click on the drive letter of the dvd drive, choose "eject".... If it still will not eject, unplug the ribbon cable from the drive but keep the power plugged in, then press the eject button. If worse comes to worse, four small screws, and you can remove the shell of the drive exposing the dvd inside.... Good luck!!!! -------------------please vote 4 thumbs up 4 me!!!!-----------
So you've pressed the eject button on the DVD Drive and tried it by clicking eject from the windows.
Ok here are the most common problems:
1. The CD was improperly placed and it got stuck in the tray. To solve this you can either open up your DVD rom or you can try this: There should be a very small hole on the tray from where you insert the disk, take a pin or something that goes in and try to shake it so that it settles and then try ejecting.
2. The motor which controls the movement is faulty, you need to change the motor very carefully not damaging any other item on the DVD rom.
Hope this helps.
Please feel free to ask me any further.
Do you mean your disc is stuck in the drive? If so Look at the drive there should be a tiny pin hole near the eject button, insert a needle (safety pin, sewing, etc.) into the pin hole and push this opens the drive. You can also try opening my computer and right clicking the DVD drive and select eject.
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: "
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
No such thing as a stupid question! There will be some type of button beside the drive drawer. If not, click on my computer, right click on dvd/cd drive, could be called drive E but that is different for different machines. Select eject. The drive drawer will open so you can put the disk in.
