Cannot open the dvd drive e-the tray for inserting a disc does come out on pressing the button or clicking on the word eject


Every manufacturer for DVDs add a small hole in front of the device. The hole is big enough for a normal paper clip to fit. Untwist a paper clip and gently insert it through that hole. If you do it correctly it will automatically pop the door open.

This is not a permanent fix as the physical DVD door might be bad but it will work anytime you insert the paper clip.

Whenever i put a dvd/cd in my hp probook 4510s and try to open it, it insteads ejects

Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, then close the lid and turn the laptop over and remove the one screw that holds the dvd drive in place on the bottom of the laptop. Remove the Dvd Drive and in about 20 seconds put it back in and Try rebooting to see if it solves the problem.

Your dvd drive might be defective and needs to be replaced. You can find one on ebay. Just put HP Probook 4510s DvD drive in the search.

Once you take the dvd drive out you can also search on the model of the dvd drive. The model will be listed on the dvd drive.

The laptop burned a disc, then ejected as usual. Another disc was place in the tray, inserted as normal but this time a cd was unable to be burned because the laptop did not recognize the disc or any other...

The automatic ejection takes place when the burn process has completed successfully. Have your tried another writable CD or DVD? If your laptop is not recognizing any more writable CDs/DVDs, then the problem might be a failed CD/DVD drive. Otherwise, it is probably a bad CD or DVD.
Hope this helps.

I insert the DVD in my system compaq cq62.But Didn't Write so try to Eject the DVD.The following problem displayed"An Error occured the while Eject the DVD RW Drive".Pls help me.


If your CD/DVD drive is not reading/writing, you may try to uninstall and reinstall the driver. Go to control panel (classic view ( for XP and vista )or small icons ( for 7)) and look for the DVD drive category, expand it to show the driver, right click to it and select uninstall (do not check the delete box) and restart the laptop. Restarting the laptop would reinstall the driver automatically. Test the drive if it's already writing.

Hope it works.

Dvd does not play


The most common reason for the Laptop not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your DVD, or issues inserting your DVD or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your Laptop including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your Laptop going again!
Hope this will help...
