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.

Dell studio 1537 slot load dvd drive when cd is iserted there is a clicking and whirring sound and cd is ejected immediately


Hi,

This is already a mechanical problem on dvd drive. Try upgrading optical dvd drive firmware from Dell's support website. Then, download and install IMG BURN. Run img burn. The software will perform a test. If the problem persists, have your optical dvd drive replaced.

I hope this works for you. Good Luck!

The cd writer/dvd tray on my hp pavilion 533w will not open. When I press the button to open the green light comes on and I can hear a whirring sound but then the light goes out and tray doesn't open....


I understand you can't find that pin hole that's supposed to be there. but just to clarify it's supposed to be on the face of the cd/dvd, not the case. also, just trying to help, did you try opening it WHILE your pc was booting up? maybe try from windows explorer and right click on the drive from that window and try eject or open option.

Disc won't eject, eject button won't light up, in fact none of the media control buttons will light up - except for "launch Dell Media Direct" button which is lite, and won't turn off. Its a Studio model,...


You can eject your cd drive by inserting a needle (saftey pin, sewing, etc.) into the pin hole near the eject button.
You can also try opening my computer and right clicking the cd drive and select eject.

Blueberry iMac with slot-loading CD rom drive will


It would be very difficult to open up the imac to retrieve the disc as the CD drive is totally enclosed and would probably result in it not be functional after removing the disk. Have a look at the following article on the apple website
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3007?viewlocale=en_US as it does indicate that the slot loading imac does have a hole for paperclip ejection. You could also try opening up disk utility and and clicking on the icon of your disk under the left hand column then go up to eject button and click eject. Hope this helps.
