The drive may be damaged but to eject the cd manually turn off the power and there is a small hole around the face of the drive. You can use a straightened paperclip to push in the hole and it should eject the cd. Let me know if you have any questions.



Thx

The first time, the DVD drive cranked up but didn't eject the disk. The second time I powered it off and then on again, the DVD drive ejected the disk.

Problem with the Dell XPS One All-in-One the DVD/CD drive is making noises like it is trying to eject a disc, but there is not a disc in the slot, it tries to eject every 1.5 seconds


See if you can boot from a CD disk by pressing the key and then selecting boot from DVD/CD drive.
You should have a CD that came with the computer which has "Diagnostics and Utilities" listed
under "Contents".
If the computer boots with the CD and the CD disk is not being accessed and before, you have a
software issue.

My daughter put two cd in my dell xps m1530.any idea how to get them out


Hi,
Please try the following:
On your dvd drive there is a very small pinhole. Get a paperclip and try to push it through. This pinhole is used for emergencies where the dvd drive does not eject.
Other thing you can do, is to turn your laptop upside down and remove the dvd rom drive from your laptop. Then unscrew the dvd drive to get the cds out.

Dell xps m1330 dvd drive will not eject cd inside


Im a dell tech, and i hate those cdrom styles, but, that is what the consumer wants, so we make them. Try starting the machine, then press F2 to enter the BIOS. once in the bios, press the eject button. listen for any noises, (an attempt to eject). if you hear a sound, it means the drive should be capable of ejecting the disc, and perhaps the disc has not seated correctly. If the disc will not eject, you must contact Dell. This is from the DELL dcse site: " Optical Drive The XPS M1330 has a slot-loading optical drive instead of a conventional tray-loading module. There is no mechanical eject mechanism for the drive to eject stuck discs. This means you must replace the drive if a disc gets stuck in the drive. After replacing the drive, disassemble the old drive to remove the disc for the customer."

Dell XPS 1300 Cd rom problem


This is a CD drive mechanical problem. All CD/DVD drives have built in error checking for mechanical failures. When you insert the CD/DVD, it tries to grab and seat the disc, then attempts to spin it up and then read it. If the grab and seat function fails for any reason, the drive will eject the tray so you can try again. You should contact Dell support and get the drive replaced. Has the drive ever worked? or did it just stop working one day?
