Question about Zenith Data Systems Zenith (OP-260-74501) Plug-In Module 24x CD-ROM Drive
I have an e-machine brand computer desk top type. My CD/DVD drive is stuck closed. I can't get it open at all. It tries. You can hear it trying. I have no pin hole on the front as most places suggest.I tried blowing it out from back and front. When it last was opening it would read a disc but not burn it. If you tried to burn a disc it said please insert a disc. Which there was a blank one in there LOL. But now I just want it to open so I can READ a disc. I havea ez-dub burner that is a stand alone but I don't know how to read discs from there . I think it only burns them?
Use my computer and select the drive (eg drive E:). From pull down menu "File" select "eject". While the disk door attempts to open (hear slight movement of tray) massage the door with your fingers. This is done by smoothing out the across front door panel with your finger tips and pushing in and releasing pressure from door. Door should slide open partially and close again. Repeat. The eject button nearside the disc tray doesn't seem to work as well as selecting "File" and "Eject" from the menu. Something to do with the door cycle is less with the direct eject button.

Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
