Hi
Normally behind the fancy doors of the Dell case is a standard drive. These often have a small hole underneath the tray that comes out. Making sure the power is off to the unit, use a straightened paper clip into this hole and push, making very sure it goes in absolutely straight. This should release the inner catch and push the tray out a few millimetres, allowing you to pull it all the way out.
Cheers

Cdrom drive can not eject / Cdrom is stuck


How To Eject CD from CD-ROM drive if it is Stuck :

If you have a CD into CD-ROM drive and it is stuck and you are trying to eject tray of CDROM by pressing the eject button or windows eject command but CD won't eject as there is no command to eject a stuck compact disc from the CDROM drive then this article is for you.

Step 1: Switch off the computer.

5573fa0.jpgStep 2. On the front of the CD-ROM drive you may find a small hole called Emergency Eject hole below the tray of CD-ROM drive . Take a long pin around 3 inch, (also known as CD ejector) it must be hard enough, insert this pin inside the hole and push a little. The CD tray will slightly move to out.

Step 3: Now you may manually pull the tray and you are done. You have successfully ejected the stucked CD.

Step 4: Switch on the computer and you may work as usual.

Thanks

Cd is stuck and showing that no cd is in unit


This fault can be caused by a second CD having been forced into the drive somehow. Shine a torch into the slot to check. A friend of mine had 3 CDs stuffed into the drive by his toddler! Unfortunately the drive did not survive.

My Lite-ON Combo SOHC-4836V DVD/CD-RW Drive will not open, is there any way to fix this? Expected Action: CD Tray opens What Happens: The sound of it trying to open, then the sound of it closing....


It sounds like a mechanical failure of the drive tray.
Use a un-bent paper clip and stick it in the tiny hole near the tray of the drive to attempt to prod the tray out of the drive.

Most likely there is something (a CD probably) stuck in the drive.

It may take a good deal of jiggling and bumping of the drive to get whatever is blocking it to come free. Be patient but firm.

What you should do is get a pin that will fit in the small hole of the of the CD drive of your computer and insert it until it seems to push out the tray and then pull it out. Hope this could help.. Thanks..

CD stuck inside the laptop, not in the CD/drive


If the CD is just a "copy" that can be re-created, then:
1. power OFF laptop
2. straighten-out on end of a paper clip
3. locate the tiny hole on the CD drive
4. push the stylus (the straightened-out paperclip) STRAIGHT into the hole with a strong push.
5. The stylus may need to be longer or stronger.

This always works...
