You should find a paperclip and straighten it out, on the front of the CD drive there will be a small hole just big enough for the straightened paperclip to fit in. Push it in until you feel tension and it should start to manually open.

You should find a little hole on the CD drive itself.
If you straigthen out a paperclip and push the paperclip in gently to the little hole on the CD drive you should be able to open your CD-ROM drawer.

Do not force it, if you cant do this and the drawer doesn't open easily then you need to take your laptop in to your nearest computer repair centre and ask them to take a look.

There should be a small hole on the drawer into which you can insert a paperclip. Push easy and the drawer should open.

There is no easy quick release to the Drive Door. You have to take the cover off of the Player and in the front of t he drive tray there is a small motor that has a small belt on it. If that belt breaks of falls off of the pulleys, you will hear the motor spinning and then it gives up. You can remove a plastic plate over the motor and pulley and manually spin the drive gear to open the Draw and remove the Disc. The belt shuold be available online.

Unstick dvd drive window


The draw has been knocked off it's normal line, When you have powered on your computer with a small thin piece of steel like a knife or thin bladed screw driver push the button on your CD/DVD and gently try to pries open the draw if successful it should zip out under it's own power after it reaches a certain limit. If you have to manually open it all the way then it is time to think about a new drive as this tells me that the ejection mechanism has failed and it is cheaper to buy a new drive than to have that drive fixed. If you are unable to get it open at all then the mechanism has ceased in place and you will have to break the face open if you have a disk in the drive but be careful not to damage the disk as it lays only 35mm in from where the draw face is. I hope this helps.

Cd will not eject from cd drive either manually or via the device icon


Desktop? Get a small screwdriver or butter knife. Hit the eject button and pry it out easy. Then you can see what the hold up is.

HP Pavillion - DVD & CD drive will not open!


More or less in the centre of the draw front of both drives you should see a small hole.

Get hold of a paper clip and straighten it out, or use something similar, and press it into said hole. It should release the drive draw.

CD-ROM Not responding


you can get the disc out by inserting a pin in the small hole on the cd draw, but when this happens it means the laser is failing to read the disc and the cdrom is failing, unfortunately the cdrom cannot be changed in the acer notebooks.
