If the computer is powered off and the power chord deconnected, you can use a fine pin to 'poke' in the small hole in the front panel of the CD/DVD drive. this is the backup mechanism for when the regular opening mechanism fails. this way you can retrieve the disk that's blocked inside. after this you can try if it works as before again, but the possibility exists that you will have to replace the whole drive...

Benq DE350/De325 dvd player has a cd stuck and no matter what we have tried can not release it to open up and retrieve the stuck cd


I think I can help you. Before you do anything turn your computer all the way off. All you need is a small paper clip. Open the paper clip up so its a straight peice of wire. Now look at the face of your DVD Rom you should see a pin hole opening about the size that paper clip will fit in to. Push the paper clip in to that hole. Push firmly and your tray should pop open enough for you to pull it out the rest of the way.Now take out the stuck CD and start your computer back up the drawer should pull back in if it doesnt give it a slight shove and it will. After that you should be able to use your player again.

I hope this helps you out if it does please give me a YES on the page you recieved this response on. Thank you.

This drive reads a dvd but not cds. do you have


may be it's only a DVD ROM drive not a combo,
you will need a combo to read both DVD and CD
if it was reading CDs earlier then the CDs might have scratch in them, try with new CD.
did u make changes to the cables inside, if you did check if the cabels are connected properly to the drive

The first thing I would do is remove the cables connected to the back of the CD burner and try booting it once again. BE SURE TO TURN YOUR SYSTEM OFF FIRST!!!

If it boots up, then replace your burner. It could be a dozen other things, but this is where I'd start and I've been repairing systems for 30 years. Good luck!!

My cd-rom drive keeps on opnening and closing?can you help me? i remove the IDE cable but it still opens and close...TNX


Dude CD ROM's are designed to close all by themselves in case if there is anything stuck in between,just unplug the CD Rom,and u might find a small hole,kindly punch in it using a pin so that the front portion of cd rom will open and clean up the entire drive using a soft brush(b careful about lens present inside)and fix it back and check out whether it works out

CDRW/DVD Rom combo drive only reads CD's


the blue you are refering to is the dye on the disc, sometimes it's purple, normally the darker the better, but it's down to the individual writer and what disc it is compatable with, but your writers problem is all too common, as in my opionion the lasers that are being fitted in writers are of poorer quality than in the earlier days to enable the prices to become lower. You can try one thing, but it doesnt always work; go to my computer>right click>hardware tab>device manager, then down list to cd/dvd drives and click '+' sign and highlight your writer, right click on it and select uninstall. Restart PC and it will be automatically re installed, try again and if no change you will need to replace the drive as they are cheaper nowadays
