Hi I guess ya mean that the CD tray will NOT open? If this is the case... then ya can "Open" it by way of a paper clip straightened... and then insert one end into the hole provided, on the front of the CD... There is a small hole usually just above the LED, inset & push it in until the mechanisim releases.. the tray should pop open and ya will B able to recover ya DVD...

Xbox 360 will not read games but plays DVD and CD


It would be best to take it to someone who mods them as they will know if it is the correct drive and if it is running modded firmware(as they are the guys who do this regularly) and if the drive has been set up correctly. They also may be able to extract the drive key and reflash the original(or modded if you preferred) firmware for the drive.

I recently bought Sims 3 for PC. So, when I open my IBM disk tray and put the disk in, the computer doesn't recognize it and I cannot install the game. This game was a little expenisve, so I would


Hi Elizabeth,

Depending on the model of your IBM PC, it could be that it has a CD drive and not a DVD drive. The Sims 3 game is on a DVD. If this is the case you will have to upgrade your CD player to a DVD player.

To test if your drive is working insert an original music CD into the drive and see if it plays. If it does play you most likely have a CD player and not a DVD player, which means you will have to upgrade to a DVD player/writer drive anyway.
These are relatively inexpensive and retail for approximately $20 to $50.

Feel free to reply should you need any further assistance.
Best wishes,

This is a dirty or bad bluray drive which seems to be the same as the 3 rings of death for the 360..
Buy a cd laser cleaner and try that if it does not work your laser diode is bad and a new laser is 50$ via ebay.. if you dont want to get to technical then you can buy a drive for 120ish and switch them out.

Sony will charge 150$ + to fix it other then that there is no way around it.. and I believe you need a proof of purchase to get the warranty. I really hope the cd cleaner works but if not then your stuck...

You can sell it on ebay and if its a 60gb you can get about 200 for it... then buy a like new 40gb ps3 for 300ish I have seen just consoles sell at 290 incl shipping. Best of luck!
If you are happy please feel free to rate me THANKS!

Pick up in the DVD is bad or weak and will need replacing.
Or replace the whole DVD unit.

Make sure the disks are clean and not too scratched up
