Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

1 Answer

DVD drive not responding

My DVD drive won't open and when I go into My Computer and select 'eject' on the dvd drive it says:
"DVD RW drive (E:) is in use. Save any open files on this disk, and then close the files, or programs using the files, and try again."
...although I am not using the drive and there are no disks in it.
I have checked everything about the drive and it all says it is working normally, except that is clearly isnt.
I'm not sure if I need to replace the entire dvd drive or if there is another way.
Please help

My DvD-rw will not open


This occurs often will CDrom/DVD's. There are two other ways of getting it open. One is to go to my computer, right click on the dvd drive and select eject. The other method is to look for a tiny hole, usually just below the door. Take a paperclip, bend it out and insert this carefully into the hole. This should open the door enough that you can pull out the drive caddy.Sometimes this will be enough to get the drive actiing normally, other times a rubber belt inside the drive has stretched enough times that it no longer opens the door reliably. You usually can continue to use the drive, but eventually you'll find that having to manually eject is too frustrating and replace the drive.

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


Hi,
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.
