On the computer itself, the whole back case will slide off or take out the screws and slide it off. From the inside, you can see the DVD Burner. Double check to make sure that on the back of the burner all the plugs coming off of it are plugged in (might not have power). If they are plugged in, three things could be your problem, you either need to buy and download the software for the burner to make sure it is working with your computer. Sometimes people delete stuff off the computer and it may have been deleted on accident. You might need a whole new tray alltogether because its broke and no longer works. Or it might be as simple as a broken piece of plastic on the tray that is not allowing it to open. No one can tell you for sure what the problem is without looking at it, but if you check these couple things, you will find out.

My burner won't burn in my dell Studio 1537


Inside the DVD drive is a laser optical eye. This eye get's dirty.

Suggest remove ALL power, then open DVD drive tray. Use a can of compressed air for computers to clean, and aim down towards the bottom of the tray.
(Remove AC adapter {Charger}, and Battery)

Disk cleaners have the tendency to wipe the 'gunk' off, then wipe it back on.

Also make sure you still have burner software. Nothing like going to use the DVD burner one day, only to find the Nero burner software was just a trial.

It's FREE, and NOT a trial.

Plus a DVD drive is mechanical. Wears out over time. Has a 'Life Cycle'.

Just an example. You may find a better price from another reputable dealer.

The DVD drive is held in with ONE screw,

My 1977098v-d6 will not eject


Possiblky the disc has moved even though on a spindle. When you say it will not eject is this using the software asking it to eject if so it will send the instruction to eject but when it finds a problem with the disc the tray will not open. So, get a pin or needle, in the front ogfthe drive will be a tiny hole behind which is the manual release. Stick the needle in the hole and push the manual release the tray should then unclick and you should be able to remove the disc.

DVD burner drawer will not open every time the button is pressed. When it does open a disk must be in the tray in order to get it to open again.


Most PC DVD/CD drives have a small hole just large enough to insert an unfolded paper clip this will release the rack and pinion drive the the tray will open for you

Sony drx820 suddenly not recognized by computer


Does the tray open for you? Re-boot the computer and go into the BIOS and see if it is listed by the BIOS. Did you accidentally remove the hardware? Go into the control panel and add new hardware and see if it detects the drive and re-installs it. Otherwise the drive might have stopped working.

DVD Door Won't Open


I have this problem with my DVD rom too. I don't know if we have the same ones or not. I took mine apart to try and diagnose the problem, and it turns out that there was this thing inside that wasn't dropping down all the way to allow the tray to slide out, it was staying locked in place.
I was unable to find a cure for this.
However, I found that when I press the button to open the DVD rom, when it fails to open, I give the top of mt computer a slap, and it un-locks the mechanism and the DVD tray slides out properly.
I hope this helps.

Phillips DVD+RW burner on Dell computer won't eject


You will find a small hole on the face of the drive. This is the manual eject mechanism. Insert any wire-like object (a properly sized size paper clip works real well) and push until the disk ejects.

Note: Many times the mechanism is recessed quite far behind the face plate, so make sure the object you use is long enough (again, paper clip).
