Re: DVD drive locked up, will not open, says its in use.
Have you tried just rebooting the unit? There is also a mechanical release on the DVD drive. With the unit powered off, unbend a paper clip, look for a small hole(about size of paper clip) in the front of your drive. Slide the clip in until you feel a solid stop and then gently apply pressure until you see the drive come open. You will have to pull the tray out the rest of the way, again gently. After removing the disk, you can gently push the tray back in, or as I prefer, let the unit close it when you power it back up. Let me know if this Fixya's
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I have the same problem kinda. Lost my master key and sent my ecu off with a home made 2 button key to program immobiliser. This key works to start the engin and drive but I cannot get the key to program with the alarm and locking system. You can try the following steps as may work for you.
I can get my car into programming mode after step 1 but step 2 does not work for me. The locks do not go off at all, not once or twice. Battery in remote key is fine as LCD lights red.
Can anyone help please?

Try to open control panel then click add hardware. If you have entered the dialogue box, answer whatever is asked according to what you're searching. Then click whatever hardware your PC would like to detect then click finshed. After the detection, close the wizard box then try to open your DVD ROM and try it.
sounds like the drive lock is not seating properly, (gearing mismatch)
The drive tray lock is a peg on a round gear which locks into a groove on the underside of the tray (you can see it on the underside on the tray,
at some point this gear has "slipped" and now does not meet this groove and closes before hitting this groove, some manual manipulation of the drive tray can solve this but it is tricky
The easiest way is to "pop" the latch, which allows you to remove the drive tray completely This "latch" is usually a sprung toungue of plastic which normally prevents the removal of the tray, if this toungue is lifted the tray can continue on the gear train and can be completely removed, (the eject function will roll the gears forwards and backwards without the tray).
all you do then is to press eject (the mechanism gears will roll out) then you just insert the tray at the correct point (usually at full extend) to re-allign the tray lock (sometimes it takes a couple of attempts to get this right)
