The easiest way is to remove the drive from the computer, remove the outer case from the drive and remove the pieces of the broken disk. Re-assemble the drive and put it back in the computer.

CD BROKE IN DRIVE - NOW DOOR WILL NOT OPEN


Seems like some of the particles from the broken CD have remained inside. For manually opening up the drive there is a small hole in which you can insert a straightened paper clip. The drive bay will budge a little and you can pull it out manually. Secondly maybe the belt driving the open/close system has gone weak. Try tapping ******* top of the drive right after pushing the eject button. After you have got it opened i suggest you remove the drive from the PC and do a detailed cleanup by completely dismantling the drive.

CD Drive not working - doesn't open or close on its own. I use an open paper clip to to this. Now doesn't recognize disc when inside and does not play. I can't find it on the file list, either.


You can consider this puppy broke, however it doesn't hurt to try some-thing to get it going again. Open your computer case and write down the make and model number down of your CD drive exactly. Type this into google plus firmware. Hence this will search for the latest firmware for you CD drive. Download the file and execute the install. Follow the instructions. This will install a piece of code to the memory chip of that CD drive. Must be exactly the firmware for that particular drive or it will be forever lost.

The other alternative is to purchase a replacement drive, it's a little easier and less complicated.

All the best, Thumbs up!!!

Cd drive will not go back in


Push it in. Try open it, if it opens. Try close it.

Success.

(It may be that it's on a security stop for the parts of the cd, they may be inside. If your unsure, take it out and shake it gentally, if there is rattles, buy a new one or bring it to a local computer shop.)

A cd broke in my cd rom


I've seen and come across cd-roms where cd's have broken (or in most cases exploded/shattered). In one case the drive flew open and bits of cd flew across a classroom, in most cases the drive remains shut (even the tray can get jammed).

This problem is usually caused by a flaw on the cd itself, a scratch or mark on the cd causes it to 'wobble' and due to the speeds cd-roms spin cd's they come off the 'spindle' inside (all that holds it on is a magnet).

I have taken cd-roms apart and removed all the cd parts and the drive has worked perfectly afterwards. Other times the drive has needed to be replaced, so i would say its purely luck if your drive isn't damaged in some way.

Although the problem could have been your drive. Without being able to get the drive ejecting and spinning cd's again you'll never know... just make sure you don't use an important cd to test it with!

Cd-rw/dvd drive broke a computer game disk. got all the pieces out but now computer does not recognize drive and drive wont close. green light doesnt come on. Its a cd-rw/dvd drive ts-h493. what do i do?


This is due to the cracked disc is damage the sensor inside your cd-rw/dvd drive. If still under waranty, you can send it to warranty claim. If it's over warranty, then you have to replace with a new one.
