You can open the drive door manually , by inserting an unbent paper clip into the pin hole on the right side front of the drive. this will manually release the door.

How do I format a DVD+RW disc?


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Here are the instructions for formatting DVD+RW discs.

  • Locate the CD-ROM drive door on your computer. The location of the drive depends on the computer you have. You will see a small rectangular button on the door.

  • Press the button and the drive door should slightly open. Lightly pull the door open and insert the blank DVD-RW disc into the drive. Close the drive door and wait for the computer to detect the disc, which will trigger an "Auto Play" screen to flash on the desktop's taskbar. The screen will prompt you to choose an action you'd like to perform for the disc.

  • Click "Burn Files to Disc: Using Windows." This link will redirect you to your Windows Explorer disc burning application. You will be prompted to enter a title for the disc.

  • Enter the title of your choice in the form and click "Next." The last screen will ask if you'd like to continue with the formatting; click "Yes" to continue. The "Elapsed Time" screen will appear indicating how long the process will take. When the process is complete, another screen will automatically appear indicating the formatting process is complete.

  • Click "OK" to continue. Your Windows Explorer panel will appear. In the upper-left corner of the panel, you will see a horizontal menu bar with different options for the disc. Now your disc is formatted and you can begin burning files to your disc.



    Have a nice Day,

    When I put a DVD+RW disk in trys to format the disk then says the disk is protected. If I open and close the door it trys to format the disk again


    It may be the brand of disc you are using. Have you tried any other brands? Have you tried DVD-RW? Might make a difference. I'm using DVD-RW and most of them work flawlesly.

    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.

    CD Burner Drive Will Only Open During Startup


    Have you contacted gateway?? As In these cases I have found that most of the time that these things happen this way is corrupt drivers or firmware on the disc drive processor its self. Find the most recent driver and unistall the driver and reinstall to see what happens. Good luck
