    I know exactly what the problem is, your drive is completely finnished. You will need to replace the drive with a new one, honestly is't not expencive to do, around £30 should do it.

    The DVD drive on my computer is stuck shut. When I try to burn a disc it says that there is no recordable drive found. I can not get the door to open even by putting a paperclip in the little hole on the front????

    But the drive is part of the processors?? I have no computer knowledge so if I just take the processors in somewhere do they just do it that way?

I found that there is a little wheel in the dvd rom drive that opens and closes the door, somehow the wheel on my xbox had become slanted which made it spin at an angle, when at the wrong angle it would get jammed and the door wouldn't open or close all the way, i think that i need to get the door off to see if the wheel is loose or something but i can't figure out how to get the door off, anyone know?

There may be a hole but it will be under the lip of the door, kind of impossible to get to. You may have to remove the drive from the emachine and unscrew it and open it manually with a small screwdriver. I regularly buy and repair or use parts from used samsung drives which is what emachines uses almost exclusively. The only upside to this is that once open, you can swap the faceplates and doors onto newer drives. If the led light is not in the middle then you can swap out the little plug in circuit too.
