Cannot eject the DVD drive

Is there a possibility that something jammed the drive? As The computer says the drive is functioning normally at the device manager.
I wonder what will jam it, though... any way to solve?

This is a question that may pertain to Dell desktops apart from the Optiplex 960 series: this comment in advance. Both my DVD drives do not eject on command, the light blinks normally, but nothing...

go to the "my computer" tab in the start menu, right click on one of the dvd drive symbols, and try to eject, if this works, see if the switches are unplugged from the face plate

The eject button on the DVD drive diesn't work I know about paper clips but I really don't want to do that every time I use the NEW DVD drive (it does eject through the software)

This tells me that the DVD drive is functional but the Drive tray is not opening when you push the button. This in turn shows that the button is faulty. As the drive is New you have the option to claim warranty support, I suggest you claim warranty support as soon as possible.

Take care!

Dvd drive does not eject

there is something inside the drive housing jamming it, you may need to replace the belt of ejecting motor/gear.
Most CD/DVD drives have a manual opener. Use a straightened out paper clip, and poke it into the small hole found on the front of the drive. This should release the drawer.
hope it helps if so do rate the solution

Just installed an LG Electronics CT10N Slim SATA Blu-ray Combo Drive into my media pc running win 7. New computer so there arent any driver issues. I replaced a dvd burner because I wanted to experience...

Was going to leave this question? Normally computer will react that way when a blank disk that is not formatted is put into the drive. The blank disk then requires formatting and will function. Not sure if this answers your quesiton. Sorry.

Disc will not eject

There's probably only something jammed in the DVD drive... last one of these I fixed had a penny that my friend's daughter tried to stuff into the system. Once we opened up the Wii, the penny fell out and everything worked great. If there's nothing jammed in the drive, there may be gears or something in there broken. The following website has the full DVD drive... but I would try opening up the Wii first to see if something is jammed in there: ~ Wii DVD Drive ~ Special "Nintendo" tri-wing screwdriver

Wont eject

Hi, If there is a disc in the drive it's possible that it has become jammed and therefore will not allow the door to open. If you get a large paperclip and bend out one side you will find there is a little hole in the front of the drive. Insert the straightened end of the paperclip carefully into the hole until you feel resistance. Gently but firmly you will need to apply an amount of force and the door will pop open. Remove the disc and restart the computer, hopefully the drive will now respond as required.

If not then possibly the door mechanism band/spring has become too loose or broken. At least these days CD/DVD drive are not too expensive to replace.

Let me know how you go,

All you can do is the usuall checks:- try, go to my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and go down the list to cd/dvd drives, click on the '+' and right click on your listed drive and select uninstall. restart the pc and then the drive will be re installed with drivers automatically. if it still won't eject then there is a drive fault.
