It cannot open or eject the drive

If there is something stuck in the drive and you need to get it out, there is a tiny little hole on the right side (beside the eject button). Just take a paper clip and stick it in there. You will hear a click and the drive will unlock and eject.

For operational use, does you computer see the drive in My Computer? I would open the case and take a look to ensure that the cables are all tightly plugged in.

CD in stuck in the computer and I can't get it out using the eject button. How do I get it to come out?

its too simple. you dont need to worry.. Check the front side of the CD ROM. you will find there one small hole. Now just take a thing, which is around the 4 to 6 inch (min is 4") long and can pass through that hole (for eg. take medium size U pin, and remove all bends and make it straight or long needle) Now insert this equipment in that hole and press. your ROM will eject...
Hope this has helped you ... Thanks....

If you look at the door of the CDRom player, you will notice a very small hole. Insert a straightened paperclip into this hole and press. The door should pop open.

My CD & DVD ROM drives will not open the door so I can insert a disk. The disk that is in the CD ROM that I can't get back out will play but the DVD ROM will not play anything at all.

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Your DVD rom tray may be stuck inside. Try the emergency eject by inserting a paper clip in the small hole at the front.

CD-ROM not opening

The eject mechanism is driven by a seperate belt. You'r's is worn or broken, however, there is a small pinhole in the face of the player that you may stick a paperclip into and the tray will open.

Dvd wont eject when you try to open it. or dvd wont play

i think the cd or dcd disc inside stuck-up you have to insert the tiny hole located at the dvd rom and insert a needle or something that is similiar or smaller of the hole size of that locted in your dvd rom.usually its new the LED blinking when opening or inserting the disc. and now you can now eject your disc manually regarding your question about it won't play a dvd try first to clean your DVD disc with a micro fiber cloth, avoid you'll scratch it, if still the same i think you're dvd room is defective.

Cd Stuck

Look at the "door" or "flap" of the cd rom drive. You should see a small round hole. If you straighten out a paper clip and insert it in the hole, push in gently, that will open the door and eject the disk. Please rate this if it helped you.

If the drive door sticks after you have used the paper clip to open it, look under the tray at the drive teeth (if any). Apply a liberalm coating of general purpose grease to the rwo inches of teeth at the end of the drive tray nearest you and close the drive door again. Open and close a few times to see if the door is now free. This worked for me on my Dell Inspiron 3100. Try it.
