Switch off the laptop and then on again and see if it will open ,if it doesn't then it could be a hardware fault and will need to be replaced at an authorised Acer center.
To get the CD out you can do this but only with the laptop off.
There is a small pin hole by the eject button ,using an ordinary pin or a straightend paper clip push it all the way in untill the CD tray manualy opens.

My acer aspire 5517 dvd does not work

Ask yourself the following questions
1. When did I last use the drive? see (a)
2. Does the disk work in another drive? (b)
3. Can I read other DVD's
4. Is the disk an original or a home made disk
(a) If you have not used it for a long time or for ever, it may be a dirty lens. To Clean this, you should use a DVD lens cleaner, the best type are those that come with a spray bottle of solution that you spray on the cleaning hairs on the bottom side of the DVD. follow the instruction.
(b) If the disk works in another drive, that could indicate there is an issue with your drive - either dirty or faulty try cleaning it
If you have tried this and still you are unable to read a disk, check with another computer that you can read the disk? see (d)
Listen to the laptop after closing the disk draw with the DVD in it, you should hear the drive spin up, and in most cases you can hear the drive move as the lens moves to read the disk. if you are not hearing both of these you may have a faulty drive. If you turn off your laptop and turn it over, look at the screws on the bottom of the laptop and you will notice one near where the DVD goes in that looks different to the rest, this is the DVD drive locking screw, if you have a friend that has the same machine or similar you can swop the drives and test, this will confirm if the drive is faulty or if it is something else.
DVD drives normally fail through being bent (when being pushed in or dropped) over use or lack of use, the latter is due to dust and is easily fixed as above.
(c) if you can read other disks in your drive, chances are there is a fault with the disk not the DVD drive, look for finger prints, scratches and clean if necessary. If it is readable in another drive and it is yours, make a copy and use that.
(d) If it is an original disk, check for scratches and marks etc. if it is home made like a data disk or music disk etc. Burn another if you can.

Not working and the tray keeps popping out a quater way

Something is jammed inside. You can try leaning the PC down toward its face and pressing the OPEN/CLOSE button a few times to try and dislodge the object.....

(Q: do you have kids? This happened to me once after my CD drive was "fed".....)

If the object falls out, you should be OK.

One last thing you can try....

When the tray is sticking at least partially out, lean the PC over as far as you can and pull the tray out fully... you will feel some resistance, but do not force it. When it is fully extended, see if anything is jammed inside it- you may need a flashlight and another set of hands....

If not, the drive needs to be removed to get the object out.

Ch08ls10 lg wont recognize dvd+r

Click the Windows "Start" button, and open "My Computer" -- if you don't see an icon for the CD/DVD drive, it's not correctly connected:
* no electrical power
* no data-cable
* jumpers on drive (MAster, SLave, CableSelect) improperly set
* just a "defective" drive

Does the drive-tray open/close when you push the button? If so, you do have electrical power.

Do you hear the drive spinning, or feel it vibrating,
when you insert a disk?

Best guess: shutdown your computer, move the "jumper" (MA, SL, CS) on the "back" of the drive to a different position, and restart.

The dvd multidrive dos not show up in device manager

Check the bios to make sure the drive is recognized.

As far as printer install goes, you can just download the latest install package from Epson's website direct.

If the drive isn't recognized you either have a bad drive or a problem with the motherboard. Either way you should remove the drive from the laptop and then reseat it back into the laptop. While everything is off and the battery removed of course.
