Take a paper clip and on the front of the drive there should be a small hole. Put the paper clip in the hole and push it in there and the door should come out and you can take the cd out.

SOURCE: I have a CD stuck in the drive on my Dell

These responses are usually correct, but the M6400 does not have a hole. I have encountered this issue and have found the only way is to reboot the computer and ejecting during POST or shortly after. I think that there is some process that has it locked, probably some Dell bundled software.

SOURCE: CD or DVD does not stay in slot. Computer ejects

The Dell™ XPS One™ A2010 system features an enhanced one-time boot menu that is easily accessible by pressing at the Dell™ logo during POST. The options in the boot menu are:

  • Network:IBA GE Slot 00C8 v1250
  • Dell Diagnostic Partition
Try to boot from a boot-able CD such as the Dell Resource CD. If it still ejects the CD then your CD/DVD drive needs to be replaced.

SD Card and disc stuck in CD slot of Alienware M14x?

try taking a small piece of wire and bending a small hook into one end slide it in on TOP of the stuck disc and hooking the center hole of the disc, (you don't want to get the wire under the disc because you could damage the disc reading hardware) also once you have the disk hooked you may have to use the tweezers to gently hold the front of the disc up to align with the slot as your pulling it out. you should feel a little resistance but don't try to force the disc out too hard.

How do you eject a cd from an alienware 14

you should be able to see a very small pin hole on the cd rom itself.
Get a paper clip and unfold it, insert the longest end into the hole until it hits something and give it a push.
You can also go to the cd\dvd rom and right click- eject

My computer wont read any cd's or dvds... I open the tray, everything works it has power to it and I can hear the cd spin inside as it trys to load then it stops and nothing happens on screen. If I put the...

It's a common problem if the cd\dvd rom is very used. Try using a cd/dvd cleaner set, a wet one is better. Follow the instructions on the set. The main idea is to put one drip of the included liquid at the set (usually isopropyl alchohol) at a specific place (like small brush) on the disk surface and play this disk. This way the "brush" will clean up the laser lens and after that the cd/dvd player will be able to read the disks. BE CAREFULL not to put too much liquid on the "brush".

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

Your CD-ROM may still be functional. The tray may just be stuck, instead of broken. First let's remove the CD.

Get a large paperclip and bend the end out straight. Look for a tiny hole underneath the CDS tray. Push the end of the paperclip into it, and it should open the CD tray a little. Then pull it out the rest of the way and get your CD out. Then try pushing the eject button on the CD-ROM to get the tray to go back in. It may take several trys. If that does not work push the tray in, slowly. Then try the eject button again. I hope that works.

If it does not you can continue to use the CD of course (lots of CD-ROMs have paperclips hanging out of them. And I've seen the problem go away, occasionally, after continued opening and pushing back the tray.
