Re: ASUS 52CD-writer's door is stuck....

Is the door stuck shut? If so there should be on the front a little hole about the size of a pin. Unfold a paper clip insert it into the hole and push firmly this will open the door. If not you can remove it from the computer and unscrew the sides allowing you access to the insides.

Thanks J

you should not need to go to the ASUS website Click Here Select "optical storage" "DVD-RW" and select your drive from the dropdown list.
You will then need to select your Operating system and then you will be able to download your drivers

Dell E510 Missing CD & DVD Drives...nothing is working yet...

you can buy that type of hardware anywhere since it is standard for all desktop. Your current drive is IDE meaning that the data cable on it is an IDE type.
Go to your local computer store and ask for a DVD writer IDE, since there is really no price difference now for a combo or dvd writer drive, it will be like 10 $ more for the writer. I live in canada so if you are in the US could be less here a DVD writer is around 35 $ at a computer shop.

Here is the spec of your computer just in case :
