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.

Dvd drive door stuck


In case you're not able to eject the disc using the eject button, you can try right clicking on the CD/DVD drive under 'My Computer' and clicking on eject. If that fails as well, you can try to eject the disc manually by pushing a straightened paper clip or a pin into the tiny hole on front of the CD/DVD drive. You should be able to eject it using the last method.

Please try in this way.

Disconnect power.
Connect power back, and keep REPEATEDLY pressing the eject button while you connect. If still no ject press power on button while you keep hitting the ehect button. You need to press eject on the unit, do not use the remote.

If that does not work, then the unit must be taken apart.

When the cd is stuck and won't eject try looking for a small pinhole on the front of the cd rom drive. This is the "manual eject" or release. Stick the end of a paper clip in there and it should release it.

Drawer on cd drive won't open model is gateway digital media center gm5260


There are a couple of possibilities here, first it could just be stuck. If you hit the eject button and light flashes, there may be a stuck factor here. Look for the very small hole on the door by the eject button and push an opened paperclip in the hole, this will trigger the manual eject mechanism. With the tray opened feel the way the tray moves along its geared slide. If it seems too tight or it sticks there maybe something mechanical that has happened to it. Try to close it again and try the eject button and see if it will cycle. Also try to right click on the drive itself (Open "My Computer" to view the drives) and click on "Eject" and see if it triggers the command.

My disc drive won't eject.


Hello,
If there is CD/DVD stuck inside:look for a small hole on the face of the drive and insert a paper clip, and press a bit, the drive will open.
If that does not do the trick, look for an icon on the systray (where the clock is shown) . It represents a square inside which there is disk.The tooltip (bubble) should read Optical Drive Power (on or off). If you click on it it shows a two item menu Power On Power Off with a tick mark near one of them. Click Power ON.

Hope it helps.
