    I have a Gateway Notebook MX6920 with a PHILIP DVD+-RW SDVD8441. The dvd rom keeps ejecting, sometimes at startup or when I put a cd or dvd it starts and after about a minute or so it stops and ejects or if I hit the laptop it does the same thing. Can it be the settings or a virus?

    You most likely have a virus. It shouldn't cause any harm to your computer its just extremely annoying. You will have to end a process in Task Manager. I'll try and find out what its called. Does it eject everytime you use your computer or only sometimes. If it's everytime you start up your computer that it will be something in the startup folder most likely.

Don't know for sure but if the common reasons are that it opens when you move the laptop and when you get on the internet the power to the device may be changing when these actions occur. Moving it may cause an intermittant connection and getting on the internet usually draws more power from the power supply. If the batteries are ok the power supply voltage may be at the threshold at which these events make them fall to some value where the dvd burner thinks it's getting a message from the operating system to eject. Try it on a different computer and perform the same actions. If the problem stays with the burner it's the one with the problem, otherwise something in the laptop itself may be causing it.

Solution #1 surely is the correct.

I've had the same problem and definitely is not a virus. Tho others are missing the fact that it occurs when the laptop is moved. What Falling Down says fits perfectly. Could be a moving connection, or so. Taking off the drive and cleaning the terminals could help.

Ooooops. Now I see this question is from a long time ago. However, it could help somebody.

You can use programs like Nero to burn data onto a disc such as a CD-RW. Since you already have a DVD burner you can even use a DVD-RW to burn your data

Phillips DVD+RW burner on Dell computer won't eject


You will find a small hole on the face of the drive. This is the manual eject mechanism. Insert any wire-like object (a properly sized size paper clip works real well) and push until the disk ejects.

Note: Many times the mechanism is recessed quite far behind the face plate, so make sure the object you use is long enough (again, paper clip).

Hi,
did you try to do the emergency eject ?
jewellers driver in drive pinhole.
use the eject method again, Computer powered Off. Open the drawer and push it back in firmly.
This is an eject button, make/break switch problem.
Also try ejecting the drive from my computer/Right click with mouse ( CD Drive ) Eject.
And ensure the 4 Pin Molex ( Red-Black-Black-Yellow ) is the right way round. Yellow usually faces to the outside of the casing.

Is this covered by a front console cover type or is the dvd, as it is with it's own eject button, as it may be touching the front eject button.
