Re: CD Drive not Ejecting properly

Hi, Since the warranty period has expired I will assume that the CD/RW has been in use for some time. Normally a small belt powered by a motor drives a gear that slides the tray out. Sometimes this belt is loose, warped or plain cut. Replacing the belt should solve the problem. You have to open the CD and it is near the front just below the tray. In other instances, the grease on the toothed railing at the sides and/or underneath the tray gets gummed up, cleaning and repacking with new light grease should take care of that. Rarely (but still does happen), the motor itself burns up and replacement (if you can get the part) is in order. An interim fix is to push a small straightened metal paperclip at a small hole below the tray cover/lip and slightly push till the tray partially opens. You can then manually pull it out. Hope this be of some help/idea to you. Good luck and kind regards.

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.

Trays not ejecting

If you need to open the drive doors, there is a small 1 mm pinhole that should be underneath the drive doors. Using a paper clip or safety pin, insert this into the pinhole and the door should crack open. Then test the drive door's eject button. If it works, they should be fine. If it doesn't you may need to replace the drives themselves due to mechanical wear and tear. Given the model number of the unit you provided, this unit may be out of warranty.

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.

Sony DVD RW DRU-820A

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.

Dvd drive

Sounds like you purchased a SATA drive when you need a IDE drive...or vise versa. Check the box. If that's the case, just exchange the drive for the proper one.

CD not rejecting

the only thing that can be done is to go to my compter, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look for cd/dvd drives, click the + sign and when your drive appears, right click on it select uninstall, then restart the pc and it will reinstall itself again. If you still find that it wont eject, either the firmware or the mechanism is at fault and only replacing the drive will be the solution as they are only very cheap to replace and very easy to fit.
