Dvd drive door stuck


In case you're not able to eject the disc using the eject button, you can try right clicking on the CD/DVD drive under 'My Computer' and clicking on eject. If that fails as well, you can try to eject the disc manually by pushing a straightened paper clip or a pin into the tiny hole on front of the CD/DVD drive. You should be able to eject it using the last method.

Dell cd drive door won't open


CD/DVD Drive Tray problems
There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

I emachine dvd rom/burner won't open how can i open it? but before it really do not play any dvd and then now it wont open.


If the door on your CD/DVD drive will not open when you push the eject button (on the front of the drive), Click on Start, My Computer, and Right Click on your CD/DVD drive. Then Click on Eject. If the door still refuses to open, you can insert a paper clip into the small hole on the faceplate of the drive and push it in until the door opens. If the door continues to refuse to open in the normal manner, you will have to replace the drive,

Cd dvd door wont open.i push the button to put in cd and nothing happens.i do see a little cd on screen ,then it goes away.


Hi,
On the front of most CD or DVD drives there is a small pin hole that you can use to open the drive if it gets stuck. Grab yourself a strong paper clip, straighten one end, insert the straight bit into the hole and push firmly once you feel some resistance.
This will partly open the drive tray to either allow you to remove a cd or insert a new cd or dvd.
Question, Is there a light lit on the front of the drive when you are:
a. trying to eject (instead of using the front button on the drive try using the "Right Click and then Eject" option when selecting the dvd drive in My Computer), If not the drive may be stuffed (broken) or perhaps the 4 pin power connection lead at the rear of the dvd drive has fallen out.
b. is the drive tray sticky when opening or closing? (get a new drive...very easy and very cheap to buy and replace)
Good luck,
Steve (Melbourne,Australia)

Cant get my cd drawer to open i push the button and it wont open try pushing button and pry at the same time and nothing happens have emachine T3508


with your computer power turned off, use a straight mini-kabob pin (or sturdy paper clip) to manually let out the DVD drive tray. There is a little hole under the drive tray door that accepts this kind of tool device. Another option is to massage the door while trying to eject the DVD drive tray. This method requires your computer to be turned on and by selecting the proper drive (E:) from the My Computer in Start Menu, you then "Eject" and can push in on the door and on the corners, enabling the DVD drive tray to open.

My cd compartment won't open.


You can manually open the door using a straightened paper clip inserted into a small hole in the door. Press firmly and the door will be released. You may have a CD stuck in there, or you may need to reinstall the driver for the CD. Or the CD drive may have failed...at least the control part that opens and closes the door.

Stuck DVD tray


Turn off the computer and then use the paper clip to open the DVD tray.
If this doesn't work, then something is jaming and stopping the tray from opening. In this case, remove the DVD drive and dismantle the drive (ie. remove the metal cover to reveal the internal components and remove the CD ot DVD disc.
If nothing works the the DVD drive is faulty and needs to be replaced, these drives are not expensive.

I have a Emachines t3522 W/ 4gb of ram, a 256mb ati X1300 pro but my disk drive won't open. It kills to get games in. Morse code is what it's like to press the button to get the drive to open. HELP!


Hi,
Unfold a large paper clip and look for a small pinhole under the tray(the part that opens to put your cd in). Put the paper clip into the hole and push firmly. CD/DVD tray will open.

Also you can try going to my computer then right click on your cd/dvd rom icon. Then left click on eject.

Drive door jammed on emachines e4212


straighten out a paper clip and locate a small hole on the front of the drive, push the paperclip in the hold and the cd\dvd will come out. If might start working after this but chances are that if it does you will need a new one in teh near future.
