You will have small hole on the drive. You may need a neddle to put it in. This will help to eject the disk out. But if this is a regular process then probably the gear mechanism is at fault which needs to be taken to a service center for repair.

How do I fix my computer CD writer Drawer to make it open.I banged it with my knee when it was open,I pushed it closed and does not open any longer.Its the HP 583 Pavillian model,not new but works wel


Many times you will see a small hole next to drawer, try something thin lika a paperclip & give a gentle poke inside. Feel for a button type spring response.

A cd broke inside my dvd writer while using it, and now it wont eject


on the left side of the front pannel just under the drawer you will see a pinhole.turn your cd unit upside down and insert a straightened paperclip in the hole keeping it straight as possible,the drawer should open enough to allow you to grip it .
if no luck you will have to remove the case top and manually remove the disc..
hope this helps.....Len..

My CD writer will not open to insert the CD. What


Hello,

Look for the small hole on the faceplate of the CD or DVD drive. This is the manual release. Straighten the paperclip and insert it into the manual release hole until resistance is felt.

Once the resistance is felt, keep pushing the paper clip until the drawer opens a little.

Remove the paper clip and gently pull out the drawer until the disc is accessible.

Cd Dvd writer not working


Select CONTROL PANEL
Select SYSTEM
Select DEVICE MANAGER
(This will show you all your computer's hardware and peripherals)
Locate your CD/DVD "DVD/CD-ROM DRIVES"
Not listed?-Defective or no power. (If you can get drawer to open and close by pressing button, you know it has power.)
Listed? right click it, select PROPERTIES
(Yellow triangle indicates error)
First tab GENERAL shows if it is working properly.
Then click on DRIVER tab to see if you just need to update the driver, or roll back to a previous driver.

Hope this helps.

You broke it. Spend $30 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.
