While on my laptop, I put the cd into the little drawer, and now want the photos that are on the cd to go into my photo gallery. Whenever I put a memory stick in (from my camera) there's no problem...some sort of scanner wizard comes up and I'm set. Isn't there something that should pop up for this???? HEEELP!!!!!!
I have come accross this as well. With the advent of Windows Vistra, they have changed the way of writing CD_ROMs and DVD-ROMs. If you cange or attempt to change the ROM then it can only be used with an updated program, and cannot be used by the older mechines. However, if you put the photos back onto camera memory, then they can be read by newer mechines. How does that grab you?

Turn the laptop off first.
Get a file clip, straighten up nicely atleast half of the length, Now carefully look for the whole which this clip just fits in on the face of the CD drawer. Insert it gently until it hits something and once it hits, gently give a little push, it should open the drawer.
Are you saying the cd drawer will not open when you push the button? If so, try the steps below.
Take a paper clip (Gem Clip) and straighten it out then get in front of the cd drawer where you place the cd. Look for a small tiny hole on the drawer and insert the paper clip (Gem Clip) into the tiny hole and push it in while you press the button on the drawer. Don't worry about breaking something, use a little force to push the paper clip in, that's why that hole is there.
Open up a paperclip so you have a couple of inches of straight wire. Take the USB stick out if possible. Find the little hole on the cd tray and gently push the paperclip in there,straight in. With luck, it'll click, and the CD drawer will open a lilbit, enough that you can grab it and gently pull it out. Do what you need to do, then close the drawer and put the USB stick back. The keyword here is GENTLY, use only as much force as you must to get the drawer open. Be careful, but they're made with this unlocking feature for a reason. Good luck!
1. Try clicking the button on the cd drive drawer door with your finger and see if it opens. If not try step 2. 2. Click Start/My Computer then Right Click on your CD Drive and select the Eject option. If both steps 1 and 2 fail proceed to step 3. 3. Get a paper clip and straighten it out as much as possible. Now get on your knees in front of your CD Drive and look for a tiny hole that will allow you to insert and push the drawer open with the paper clip. That little hole is there solely for that purpose.
hello, have you tried going into "My Computer" then right clicking on cd drive and click "Eject"? if not, try that.
if you have then take a thin paper clip open up one side of it so its straight.
After you have paper clip straighten up look carefully around the cd rom's eject button and you will notice a tiny hole.
Take the paper clip and keeping it straight slowly and gently insert in the hole and soon you will feel little resistance push it a little bit more and that should eject your CD rom.
if it opens up leave the cd rom open and reboot your laptop once and see if your drive now work normally and ejects the way it should?
wow...that's a little tense..only way I know is with long needle nose(but be careful with mechanism) or talking apart the laptop(takes around 35 min and loads of patience) so you can slide it out from inside.
