You ought to read your instruction manual. If the button is not in the centre of the drawer, it may be on the top right hand side of the keyboard. Unfortunately you didn't disclose the model number. Another way to open the drawer is to open your My Computer and right hand mouse click on the drive. You can then choose eject in the menu.

There is a small hole, usually near the eject button. Unbend a paper clip and carefully push the paper clip into the hole, try to keep it straight. drive should pop right out.

All CDs & DVDs have a tiny hole on the drive tray.
Get a paper clip, straighten the paper clip and insert it into this hole and push the paper clip in gently, the tray will release and pop out, then you can remove your disc.
You can do this without the laptop being powered up or powered down.

How to open cd tray on acer Aspire E1-522-5603


If this is a windows 7 install, have you tried going to Windows Explorer, then right click on the drive that represents your CD drive, and see if there is an "Eject" option. Otherwise on many newer CD drives, there is a very small hole next to the eject button. To open it manually stick a paper clip into the hole right next to the eject button. There will be a little resistance because this is a manual release to open it.

A lot of Desktops and Laptops have an eject facillity within "My Computer" if you are Windows OS.
Go to My Computer and Right click in the CD/DVD rom, select eject.
Otherwise there is a tiny hole on the front panel, next to the eject button. That will accept a straightned out paper clip and will push the mechanics to manually eject a disc.
Hope this helps.

My PC won't allow me to right click to choose the eject option for a CD. I want to know if there is a way to remove the CD manually.


The DVD drive itself has a small horizontal 'eject' button that you can press to eject the disc.
If the button fails the disc is stuck however the DVD drive will have a small hole near the eject button- about 2mm in diameter. Straighten a paperclip or similar and push into the hole until the disc drive mechanism releases and opens.

Thanks,

A dvd is stuck in the drive. It resists all attempts at removal including the ''eject cd'' command in Open Firmware. Can I manually remove it?


The iMac (Slot loading) computer's disc eject mechanism is electrical instead of mechanical. To eject a CD-ROM disc at startup that contains system software, press the mouse button until the computer ejects the disc. If the disc does not contain system software, wait for the iMac to start up and drag the disc icon to the Trash.

If either of these steps fails to eject the disc, push the drive's manual eject button with a small, blunt object like a paper clip. This button is located to the right of the CD/DVD slot as shown in Figure 1. The computer must be turned on to eject a disc in this manner.


ht3007_1.gifFigure 1 Manual eject button

Once the disc is ejected, it extends just beyond its center hole so you can remove it from the drive. If the disc fails to eject, while holding in the paper clip, use another CD to gently push against the inserted CD. This gentle pressure may help to release the inserted CD.

Important: After ejecting the disc with the manual eject button, you must restart the iMac in order for the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive to work.
