If there is a problem with the eject mechanism on the drive, ie some dirt/damage, it may be ejecting up to the point where the dirt blocks the eject. The motor senses this, and then retracts the tray, to prevent damage to it.

Also, you may want to do a manual eject on the drive - get a paperclip, straighten it out, and check the front of the drive for a tiny hole - approx 1mm. With the system power off, push the straightened paperclip in through this, and you should feel some resistance, but if you carefully push against this, the drawer should manually eject. Once it starts to eject, you can carefully pull the tray out with your hand, and remove the CD. Just power on the unit again, and the tray should retract from wherever it was.

To test the drive further, go to your BIOS screen (normally F1 or DEL or poss f10 on boot) - don't change any settings here - then try ejecting the drive. If it ejects cleanly, I'd suspect software. If not, as the OS hasn't loaded yet, this will rule out spyware/viruses etc - it'll make it a hardware issue.

If you're handy with a screwdriver, you may be able to remove the drive, take the covers off, and check the gears inside. Warning - this can be fatal to the drive, so be careful, but you might just see the crud inside that's stopping it working.

Unable To Eject DVD From DVD-ROM Drive With The Eject
The DVD-ROM drive will not open to release the DVD when the button is pushed on the drive. RESOLUTION:
  1. Shut down the program that you are installing or running that uses the DVD-ROM drive.
  2. Wait 10 to 15 seconds, and then open the DVD-ROM drive by pushing the eject button on the DVD-ROM drive.
  3. If the DVD-ROM drive door still does not open, do the following:
    • Insert a paper clip or small pointed object into the small hole near the button on the DVD-ROM door.
      Gently push in the paper clip until the DVD-ROM door opens.
    • Remove the CD from the drive.
To prevent the DVD-ROM drive from exhibiting this behavior again, follow these steps:
  1. From the Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
  2. In Control Panel, double-click the System icon.
  3. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Device Manager tab.
  4. On the Device Manager tab, double-click the CD-ROM category.
  5. Double-click Toshiba DVD-ROM.
  6. In the Toshiba DVD-ROM Properties dialog box, click the Settings tab.
  7. On the Settings tab, clear the Auto insertion notification check box, and then click OK.
  8. Click Close.

It will read dvd but wont play it as there is no decoder present


If it's a home movie you're trying to play it will be a codec that is missing, probably divx or xvid perhaps. Search for codecs on google and download the divx codec or ftdshow which are free.

When i press eject button cd drive is not


Sounds like the belt inside is broken or came off. Does te drive still sound like it is opening but does nothing? Also try using a small paper clip and push it into the small hole on te front of the CD-ROM that will at least open the drive manually and possible fix the problem if the device is stuck.

Will not open anymore, door is broken


There should be a very small hole in the front of the face plate. Insert a paperclip and gently press the emergency release. The door should come open. Try this with the machine powered down.

I hope this helps

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.

Cd/dvd drive


You can see a hole located on the tray of the cd rom drive. Commonly seen beside the button to eject the cd out. Grab a small pin and push the hole and this should eject the tray. Close the tray again by pressing the button. Eject it using the button. If everything still failed, call up Dell to have the CD Rom Drive replaced.
