How to eject a disk from a slot drive, when you've tried everything else


This is about trying to eject a CD or DVD stuck in a slot drive.
Most computers have a drawer-based cd drive which rarely suffers from disk jams.

Some high end PCs (and nearly all Macs) have slot drives where you feed the disk into a slot, the disk is then pulled into the machine. This gives better structural strength to the case, looks neater etc etc...

The problem is that occasionally a disk will get stuck. and there’s no little release hole on the front to push a paperclip in. There is lots of advice on the internet for the Macs, the Wii, and Pioneer drives of varying types, and most of these advise OS tricks, or firmware commands, however this trick is for when all those methods have been tried, and the disk is still trapped in the machine.

The idea is to stop the disk spinning and fool the drive into thinking the CD is bad, and it will eject it. I was taught this trick by a retired engineer, and it works a treat.

Fold a piece of cardboard (I used the side of a Frosties box) lengthways twice, until it’s quite stiff... Carefully push it into the slot until it bumps up against the edge of the CD/DVD.

Start the machine, and push the cardboard firmly against the disk to prevent it spinning. Wait for the regurgitating noises, and remove the cardboard to allow the disk to be ejected.

Easy.

Gateway M505 internal cd-rom slot does not take in a cd dvd


Not unless you know A LOT about electronics. It's best to just remove the drive and buy a replacement on ebay.

You can either search for M505 drive

or use the part numbers from the drive if you want an exact replacement.

Best of luck!

New (to me) blueberry cd stuck in drive


If this is a slot loading machine there may be a little hole next to the CD-Rom drive. Slide a paper clip into the hole and the CD should pop right out. If this is not a slot loading machine then it will be the same procedure only the hole for the CD-Rom will be on the CD-Rom tray itself

Installing hard drive on this model


Hi,
Sure why not.
You,ll need a ribbon cable also 40 or 80 strand IDE Cable. to connect from hard-drive to Motherboard. If you have an existing connector already in. this should be In IDE 1 Or Primary slot ( on motherboard ) there should also be a secondary IDE Slot.
connect ribbon to IDE 2 Or secondary slot, and to hard-drive.
ensure the jumper on the hard-drive is set to Slave Or Master, if your running another device from that same cable, set to Master/Slave alternate to hard Drive.
Good luck and go for It.
Power Off first.
Motherboards are,nt too happy about Static.
