I have a burned CD in the CD drawer and I can't retreive it, I can't find the button to open the door. Somewhere there is a button" OPEN DOOR" but I can't locate it.


There are two ways to open the CD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD disc.
If you continue having problem openning with the Eject button, then the CD drive may be faulty and needs replacing.

Acer CD is not getting ejeccted


The mechanism is physicall jammed.
Take a Norwegian paper-clip, and straighten one end.
Push that end into the small hole in the faceplate of the CD-drive.
Push until you feel resistance, and then push another 1/4 inch (10 mm).
The door should "unlock" -- gently pull the tray the rest of the way open, and remove any disk.
Then, it's time to spend $40, to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.]

My CD-ROM drive will not open. What gives?


Something is "jammed" -- take a Norwegian paper-clip, and straighten one end. Put that end into the small hole in the face-plate of the drive. Insert it until you feel resistance, and then push another 1/4 inch (0.6 cm). The tray should "unlock" and open slightly; gently pull the tray open, until you can remove any CD-disk.

Then, spend $40 to buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer, and install it.

A cd is jammed in the all-in=one drive it is in the wrong way how do I unjam it


there is a pin-hole switch in the wrong of the drive, that is designed to open the drive manually in case of loss of power, or if the drive door gets stuck. You can do the following to open it:
1. straighten out a paper clip, or small pin. you will use this to press the release.(note: make sure if you are using a pin, it isn't sharp! you want to open the drive- not puncture it)
2. locate the pinhole (usually below the drive door), and stick the pin/paper clip in there. keep pushing, and the drive door should pop open slightly.
3. using your hands, gently pull the door the rest of the way open, and retrieve your CD.
Hope this helps.

Solve a jammed cd problem


Usually if you remove the cover you can access the area where the CDs are. You may have to remove the cover from the drive also. Let me know how this works out.

My laptop ate my disk


The CD drive is secured by a small small screw which is located on the under side of the laptop, it normally has a small picture od a cd next to it, if you remove the screw you can slide out the CD drive.
once you have remover the CD drive you can undo the small screws on either side of the CD drive and open the drive and remove the cd, reverse the steps to put it back in the laptop.
However please take care and be gentle
hope this helps

Cd won t eject from 2006 Ford Focus mp3 player Get eject error message How can I safely remove CD''


HI, either the deck assembly is jammed or, the load motor has failed. In this case, you will need to disassemble the entire set in order to retrieve this CD.

The actual loading deck(the part where the CD is located), is surrounded by a metal housing. the gear assembly is probably locked, due to this jam or failed load motor. This will also require a set of precision tools as well. if you find this a bit overwhelming, i suggest taking this unit to a local automotive audio shop. they can dissemble it and, retrieve the CD for a small price.

Same problem


you may have a label or even the metal slide piece stuck in the mechanism. Take it to a computer shop so you dont do more damage trying to open it. Some CD drives have a small reset hole on the front that when an open paper clip is inserted it allows rejection but if a lable is stuck it needs specialized intervention, especially for the 3.5 drive that has metal slide from disk jammed in it

CD ROM is jammed-wont open


This has happened to me. Sometimes when I'm in a hurry I'll place a CD or DVD in the tray and start to close it without making sure that the disk is seated flat in the tray. If it's ****-eyed the CD wil shatter when the tray is closed. The only way to remove the pieces inside the CD drive is to take apart the CD drive. Might be easier just to replace the unit. They run from about $25.00 to $75.00. One other note: You can try to open the tray manually by inserting the end of a paper clip into a small hole on the front bezel of the drive.
