Dell d 2400 cd-r/rw drive wont open properly

I tried to open physically and from Windows Explorer and stick a paper clip inside the ejection hole. I think this can also be a problem when Im trying to use Sandra Lite and restarts my system. I ran a IDE diagnostics test and tell me Secondary Drive Master and Slave drive diagnostics not supported. I even change IDE cables for that matter.

    Sounds like a hardware issue? That's a tough one? Have you verified the drivers? Is the DVD Rom drive showing in the Computer folder? Take a look at this:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060

Hope this help you...This is in relation to what your error code means, you'll need to check against the list.

  • Error 0x00000024 - This problem may occur if there is a conflict between Windows XP SP1 and the display adapter drivers that are currently installed.
  • Error 0x00000004 - occurs because your computer processor detected and reported an unrecoverable hardware error to Windows
  • Error 0x0000007b - occurs if your computer is infected with a boot-sector virus.
  • Error 0x80004005 - occurs because the account that is being used to access the page does not have access to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC registry key.
  • Error 0xc0000005 - occurs because of memory corruption.
  • Error 0xc0000034 - caused by a missing system file (usually Ntdll.dll in the %systemRoot%\system32 directory.
  • Error 0xc0000006 - occur if there is not enough free hard disk space on the NTFS-compressed hard disk partition when the SIS filter tries to read compressed back pointer data streams from the SIS volume.
Another common reason can be malware and spyware that penetrate to your computer registry and started destroying it... that's why it's so important you fix your registry right now!

trust this help.

How to open cd tray on acer Aspire E1-522-5603


If this is a windows 7 install, have you tried going to Windows Explorer, then right click on the drive that represents your CD drive, and see if there is an "Eject" option. Otherwise on many newer CD drives, there is a very small hole next to the eject button. To open it manually stick a paper clip into the hole right next to the eject button. There will be a little resistance because this is a manual release to open it.

DVD will not eject on my toshiba laptop



Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer

if there is a small hole on the panel of your dvd drive push a staightened paper clip inside until you feel it press down this will open up the drive

hope this helps

Eject dell e6420


Eject what a Cd or DvD? If you can't get it to eject by pressing the eject on the drawer, try opening My Computer, then right click on the CD/DvD drive and select Eject. If it still does not eject you will need to straighten out a paper clip, get on your knees and look for a tiny hole on the cd drawer. Stick the paper clip into that tiny hole and push the drawer open.

There is a little hole next to the button you normally would press to eject the CD, use something small like a paper clip and push it into the hole, this would force the CD driver to open. Smile!

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.

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!!
