Ive seen this once before so this may depend on your drive. remove the faceplate and the bezel on the drive tray(it should snap off if you push up on it. now right under the tray there is a couple of holes. one of them is a hole where if you have a small screwdriver you need to push it in and it should turn the ejection gears enough to pull it out. they are in different locations on different drives. the Hitachi drives are the hardest to do this. to stop this, you may to need to open it up and see if there is any obstructions and lube the tray slides and motor. silicon grease is a real good lubricant so try that

CD stuck


Restart the computer, and press and hold the "C" key as soon as you hear the startup chime. The CD is most likely not a system disk, so if the CD mechanism is functioning properly, it will be ejected. Note: this works on older Macs. In newer systems, it may be ignored.

If this doesn't work, get a medium to large - size paper clip, and straighten out one bend. At the left end of the slot, there is an emergency eject actuator about 1/4"-1/2" inside the CD drive. Push the end of the paper clip wire straight in at this point. You will feel some resistance at first, then the eject mechanism should start to move and the disk will appear.

Unless there is some odd problem with the disk (e. g. an adhesive label coming loose and hanging up in the drive, I'd be suspicious that the optical drive has a problem and should be replaced.

Hello, my otiplex Gx620 cd/dvd drive will not eject the cd it in. Is there any way of releasing it ? many thanks hannah x


Hi and welcome to fixya!

Just follow these few steps and it should fix the problem (but if the problem keeps on happening, it maybe time to change the ODD).
    • 1 Locate the optical drive that contains your stuck disk. You'll see a small hole on or immediately below the disk tray.
    • 2 Straighten the paper clip.
    • 3 Insert the straight end of the paper clip in the hole and push. You should feel it catch inside the latch mechanism.
    • 4 Pull the paper clip out gently. The disk tray will come with it.
    • 5 Remove the CD or DVD and close the tray.

Will not eject disk


Hi,

Is your eject button broken? Does it click when you punch it, or goes in like the button on the board is broken?

It is either this or there is something jammed inside your system.

Check inside your drive and remove anything stuck in there causing the drive to not function correctly when ejecting.

Hope I helped!

Take care

Disc jam


Hello there,

To manually remove any disk from your ROM tray, simply use a paper clip or any straight wire that can reach up to at least 2 inches long.

1) straighten paper clip.
2) look for the manual eject hole which is usually located near the eject button.
3) insert the pin/clip and push firmly to eject the tray.

Hope this helps.

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.

How to eject a floppy disk from the external drive? It is stuck in the drive and can't remember how to get it out.


Sometimes the disk stops when ejecting, and remains in a slightly lifted position, making it impossible to eject it no matter what. It has to come back to it's resting place inside the drive and then you can try ejecting it again.
Try to push it back in with something that will not destroy the disk and the drive, like a piece of cardboard, or your finger, if you can reach inside.When it clicks back into place, try ejecting it again. Repeat a couple of times if necessary, it should unlatch eventually.

Hp IQ780A has a2discs stuck in the dvd drive


Woah! You don't want to hear this but forcing a second disc into the drive has probably destroyed the drive read head. They are pretty tough and it might be able to survive but you will most certainly have to dismantle the drive to remove the DVD and not create any more damage. Kind of like scraping someone elses car in a parking lot. More damage is done when you try to back off of the other car than the initial hit. (not like that's ever happened to me :) )

CD stuck in ps3 horrible noise cant get out HELP!!!


I had the same symptoms. The reason to my problem was that my 2 year old has pushed *three* disks into the console. I got them out through the following, admittedly pretty weird, approach: I hit the eject button, while gently prodding with another disk into the slot (at a slight upward angle). I could feel the disks inside the console rotating or vibrating as I was *gently* touching them with the fourth disk and hitting eject repeatedly. Somehow, the gentle prodding made one of the disk come out a bit, so I could pull it out easily. (I was pretty surprised when a second disk came out, and then a third.)
