All CDs & DVDs have a tiny hole on the drive tray.
Get a paper clip, straighten the paper clip and insert it into this hole and push the paper clip in gently, the tray will release and pop out, then you can remove your disc.
You can do this without the laptop being powered up or powered down.

    If your CD/DVD drive does not open or close when you push the drive button or select eject from the desktop drive ICON, then you have a faulty disc drive. These drives are removeable, and a replacement drive can be purchased.

Cd drive wont eject


Try ejecting it through "My Computer". Right click on the drive and select "eject". If you can't locate the drive, then it's probably missing the driver.

Try to take the disk out of the computer using the following option

Normally the studio laptops have soft eject for the CD and they dont have a button.. Press and hold the Fn key and then press the F10 key to eject the cd.. Another way is get into computer.. Right click on the DVD/cd rom drive and click on eject... This will work....

If its still not working callup Dell to fix the issue since it might be a issue with the DVD drive even

My PC won't allow me to right click to choose the eject option for a CD. I want to know if there is a way to remove the CD manually.


The DVD drive itself has a small horizontal 'eject' button that you can press to eject the disc.
If the button fails the disc is stuck however the DVD drive will have a small hole near the eject button- about 2mm in diameter. Straighten a paperclip or similar and push into the hole until the disc drive mechanism releases and opens.

I dont know how to eject cd I have a dell studio xps i cant remember how to eject CD


there should be multimedia touch buttons above the keyboard... for play skip track pause, etc... one of these should be eject, however there have been some issues with this (possibly to be fixed by a software patch)


Alternatively you should be able to eject the disk by going to "MY computer" right click on the correct drive icon for your CD/DVD drive and select Eject from the popup menu

My dvd won't eject after playing.


What exactly do you mean? A DVD or CD will not automatically eject. You must tell it to.
If, however, you mean that when you press the eject button it doesn't come out, then the drive has a problem. You can push a paper clip in the little hole in the front and the drawer should come out. If you can eject it manually but not with the button, then your drive is bad--perhaps something broken in the button.
You can also go to "computer" or "my computer" and right-click on the CD/DVD drive and choose "eject" to see if it works by using software.

I've a DELLXPS M1530. I'm trying to eject a CD, wont come out


I do believe that there is still a small hole by that slot, that you can insert a straightened paper Clip into, and keep pushing until you feel/hear a slight, click, keep pushing gently and the disk should soon appear. IF you cannot do that the DVD will be removable by taking out the fasteners underneath the laptop,, and sliding the DVD out. for repair of replacement.
