Someone needs to open it to SEE what is happening--if the unit holds more than one disc (model seems to indicate that) you likely have a mechanism problem with something jammed or even broken--mechanism could also be out of alignment which is a task for a pro.
Look and see what is happening is first thing needed here.
You should try unplugging the DVD player from its power source then plugging it back in. Now try to open it and if that doesn't work than you'll probraly have to take it apart to get the disk out but sometimes the DVD players can get worn out or if you have a cheaper DVD player it might just be freezing up on you. I have had these problems before. I just took the DVD player apart to get my disk and then trashed it.
Hi.I do not know if you can do it but no other way..Lets try it.. Please got a screwdriver and open the DVD case from the sides and back. It is simple, just some black screws. Then look in the unit and see and gently remove the disks by plastic holder open and sliding the disks out. Then put the cover back on and put the screws back in. Should Work fine now. I hope this helps you. Good luck.

The best thing to do would be to take the dvd drive out of the laptop completely. There usually is a screw on the bottom of the laptop holding in the drive.
Get the drive out and then with the end of a paper clip, put it in the hole in the front of the dvd drive so the door opens.
After you open up the door to the drive then make sure the dvd drive is upside down and shake it so any pieces from the disc that got ate up will come out onto the ground. If nothing comes out then you would need to take apart the drive by taking out the screws and then removing the pieces manually and then putting the screws back into the dvd drive.
With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and
then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the

moves the laser
diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end
of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward
position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then
back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through.
This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the
music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a

When you say it won?t read are you trying to play commercial DVD movies or read DVD data disks?
If you're trying to play movies then you need a couple of things the first being some type of player program. Real player works as does Windows media player but usually DVD drives come with a striped down version of PowerDVD or WinDVD.
If you in fact have a player installed and when a DVD is inserted in your drive it doesn't play it may not be configured to automatically play DVDs. Try opening your player program and trying to manually play your DVD.
Let us know if you have any success or if you need more assisted. If you do let us know what player program and operating system you have and any error messages that may appear.
