There's usually a screw on the bottom of the laptop that holds the CD drive in. Unscrew that, then push the eject button to open the tray, or straighten a paperclip and push it gently into the release mechanism hole in the front of the tray. This will release the tray. Gently pull on the tray and the whole drive should come out. You can probably get a reasonably priced replacement drive from Acer for from Ebay etc.

The DVD tray doesnt eject


either it is the ribbon wire, the motor that ejects the tray or the belt that connect the tray and motor is the problem. In case the above three are fine, replace the drive as the sparking might kill your moterboard.

Acer aspire cd/dvd drive not working


Most likely if you have to use a paperclip to open the door, your drive is bad and needs to be replaced. They are pretty easy to install, directions depends on if you have a desktop or laptop Aspire.

CD tray doesn't open


ok there is a small hole below the tray, use a small paper clip
wire to push in that whole, push and the tray should come out.

if that doesnt work take cd player out, push plastic clips on side
and top at front , front plate should come off .

where small whole was in front look behind plate you will see a small little metal arm push on that

should be able to clear cd player then .
