Sony CD-RW CRX320EE is not ejecting...what to do..I think its jammed..


Take a paperclip, find a small hole in the front of the drive, and push the paperclip into the hole. The CD drive should eject. If it does not, it is time first of all for a new one anyway, but you may have to disassemble the drive to grab the CD.

Que qps 525 cd. Lights up but can not open drive


You need to load the drivers from the cd or find them on the internet. Mine did the same thing untill I reinstalled XP. I don't suggest you'll have to do that. Just find them on the internet... ward bones

My sony cd-rw crx320ee does not eject but it can read cds


When you say "not eject", I'm assuming you have tried ejecting from a physical button on the drive as well as selecting eject in Windows Explorer. If not, give it a try. If still a problem, note a small hole in the drive. Open a paper clip and gently place one end in the drive. The drive should open. Hope that helps.

Will Not reconise Cd or DVD in the Drive


Yes, this drive is basically dead. You can find pretty cheap prices for new drives at www.pricewatch.com
If the drive door closes on a cd or dvd that you want and it will not open back up, use a straightened paperclip and push it into the little hole near the door on the drive, the door will pop open then.

CD-RW drive won't open


stick a straight paperclip into the tiny hole in front a few times. This manually rotates the gears and will eject the cd tray.
If it does not still come out because of the jammed CD - you may need to use force!!

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

CD-RW Door won't open with disc inside


You need to push harder in the pinhole, and do it while the power is off. That pinhole goes directly to a gear. If the gear is stuck and will not turn at all the drive will have to be disassembled to recover the cd.

Tray will not eject on LTR 16102B CD-RW


Most likely due to a worn belt. You can use a paper clip in the manual eject hole while pressing the button repeatedly to get it open. The belt or the drive will need to be replaced.

Sony DVD RW DRU-820A


Hi,
did you try to do the emergency eject ?
jewellers driver in drive pinhole.
use the eject method again, Computer powered Off. Open the drawer and push it back in firmly.
This is an eject button, make/break switch problem.
Also try ejecting the drive from my computer/Right click with mouse ( CD Drive ) Eject.
And ensure the 4 Pin Molex ( Red-Black-Black-Yellow ) is the right way round. Yellow usually faces to the outside of the casing.

Wont eject


Hi, If there is a disc in the drive it's possible that it has become jammed and therefore will not allow the door to open. If you get a large paperclip and bend out one side you will find there is a little hole in the front of the drive. Insert the straightened end of the paperclip carefully into the hole until you feel resistance. Gently but firmly you will need to apply an amount of force and the door will pop open. Remove the disc and restart the computer, hopefully the drive will now respond as required.

If not then possibly the door mechanism band/spring has become too loose or broken. At least these days CD/DVD drive are not too expensive to replace.

Let me know how you go,
SeaJade

All you can do is the usuall checks:- try, go to my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and go down the list to cd/dvd drives, click on the '+' and right click on your listed drive and select uninstall. restart the pc and then the drive will be re installed with drivers automatically. if it still won't eject then there is a drive fault.
