Cannot eject dvd

Good day,

If it's a dvd rom drive of a PC(personal computer), then get a long, strong thin material like a pin, at least of the length of your index finger. Around/beside the eject button on d dvd rom, you will see a small hole, like d size of a dvd rom led light, insert the thin material thru this hole until you "feel like you are pushing something inside the dvd rom". The dvd rom should open a bit, then you can open it completely to get your dvd.

I hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa!!

Dvd won't eject. It lights up flashing like wants to open. I tried to eject dvd every way possible ie., computer link, etc

All CD / DVD drives have a Eject Pin Hole. The only thing we need is a paper clip to use it

All we have to do is bend it at the first curve 180 degrees (straitening it out). Then take the second curve and bend it 90 degrees. Now we need to locate the Eject Pin Hole.

Laptop - Notebook CD / DVD drives:
The trays on laptops/notebooks are spring loaded, so all that is needed is to release the locking mechanism. You do not have to insert the paper clip as far as with a desktop CD / DVD drive, as you are not connecting to the gearing under the tray. Gently insert the paper clip into the Eject Pin Hole. Once you feel it make contact, gently push in and the tray will eject immediately. Once done, gently push the tray back inward until it locks back into place.


Desktop CD / DVD drives:
Gently insert the modified paper clip into the Eject Pin Hole until you feel it make contact with the gear underneath the tray. Firmly pressing inward, you will notice the tray to start to move out. Press inward until you have enough room to get your finger under the tray and then pull it out the rest of the way. If you can only get a small portion of the tray out, you can use the other end of the paper clip to gently pry open the tray enough to get your finger under it. Once done, gently push back the tray to the closed position. It will close firmly when the system is powered up.

Where is the EJECT BUTTON on mytwo year old model # PP25L Dell Windows Vista laptop computer

If there is no physical eject button on your dvd drive, you can eject it with your operating system.
Go to My computer and right-click on your dvd drive. Your dvd drive should eject.

Got new computer from Costco Hp DVD drive is staying open and does not close

I had a similar problem myself just recently with a new PC. Whilst the PC is running, try gently pushing the tray door closed and then reboot the PC. If it reopens when booting up, check first that the outer flap door is not jammed against the eject button in any way. If you're satisfied that the button is clear from any interference from the outer flap and the DVD drive has ejected again then take the PC back as the drive is most likely faulty.

DVD does`t open. It have one disc inside and I need it. Exist one software command (by pc) that permit to open the dvd without use the open key? Thank you, Jorge Lopez

Any operating system that believes the disk is in use may restrict the disk bay from opening by the use of the drive button or a soft eject keystroke. In Windows this most commonly happens when the system believes itself to be actively accessing or installing from the CD/DVD drive when actually the disk is unreadable, the drive has become unmounted, or a software product has locked the drive. In this case, there is no soft key command to force it to open.

You essentially have three choices:
  1. Wait for the application using the drive to time out and then eject the disk normally
  2. Force quit the application or software that is monopolizing the drive then eject the disk.
  3. Restart the computer to terminate any processes currently monopolizing the drive.
  4. Force a paper clip in the small access hole to manually eject the drive. (I know this third is exactly what you didn't want to do)

D V D disc stuck in my computer

So you've pressed the eject button on the DVD Drive and tried it by clicking eject from the windows.
Ok here are the most common problems:
1. The CD was improperly placed and it got stuck in the tray. To solve this you can either open up your DVD rom or you can try this: There should be a very small hole on the tray from where you insert the disk, take a pin or something that goes in and try to shake it so that it settles and then try ejecting.
2. The motor which controls the movement is faulty, you need to change the motor very carefully not damaging any other item on the DVD rom.
Hope this helps.
Please feel free to ask me any further.

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.

My CD rom drive won't eject the cd on my Dell Studio Laptop. I press the eject button on the comp, and the click eject on the cd screen, and it makes a noise but nothing comes out.

You may have a cd jammed in your drive. Switch the computer off and on the front of the CD rom drive is a small hole, if you push a straightened paper clip quite hard into this hole it will open the drawer.

My dvd is not going in dvd drive?????

Well I know this seems obvious but is the PC on while you are trying to close the drive? Restart PC and push the button as soon as you see something on the screen. Most drives can be closed manually a few times without injuring the ejection motor. Try this and if it doesn't work then the drive is probably jammed in that position from something brushing up against it while it was out... Just play with it gently until you get it to go back in.
