Okay, I need to know whether the drive is currently installed into a computer and if so is the computer powered on. I am not questioning intellect but you would be surprised how many people fail to take into account these simple steps. Now provided both of these factors are not an issue then the problem can possible be resolved by triggering the manual release. Locate a small hole on the front of the unit and using a safety pin something similar, stick the pin into the hole which should cause the drive to open bypassing the switch or any other controls. If this does not work and your system confirms the unit is present, its possible you may have a hardware issue requiring replacement.

You said in your post, "The DVD will be under My Computer, but I am unable to play/watch it."

You will be unable to play any DVD that is located under your computer! Besides, with your computer sitting on your DVD, you are very likely to scratch it! Better start putting DVD's in a DVD tray, or put it away in a sleeve or something similar to protect them from getting scratched!

Unable to open DVD drawer


If you take a paper clip and straighten it, there is a little hole in the front of the CD drive, push the paper clip into it and your CD drive will get pushed open. This will get a CD out, but will not fix it.

Try re-seating, or connecting a different power cable to the back of the CD drive. Does your PC even recognize that the CD drive is present?

Most of the time the CD drive needs to be replaced.... they are very cheap.

Will Not reconise Cd or DVD in the Drive


Yes, this drive is basically dead. You can find pretty cheap prices for new drives at www.pricewatch.com
If the drive door closes on a cd or dvd that you want and it will not open back up, use a straightened paperclip and push it into the little hole near the door on the drive, the door will pop open then.
