Re: dvd drive

On the face of the drive there will be a tiny little hole. If you take the end of a paper clip and stick it in that hole, it will pop the drive open.

My MSI GT660 Dvd will not open or eject

There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

My DvD-rw will not open

This occurs often will CDrom/DVD's. There are two other ways of getting it open. One is to go to my computer, right click on the dvd drive and select eject. The other method is to look for a tiny hole, usually just below the door. Take a paperclip, bend it out and insert this carefully into the hole. This should open the door enough that you can pull out the drive caddy.Sometimes this will be enough to get the drive actiing normally, other times a rubber belt inside the drive has stretched enough times that it no longer opens the door reliably. You usually can continue to use the drive, but eventually you'll find that having to manually eject is too frustrating and replace the drive.

Actually my dvd is not opening when i m pressing the open/close button.

It could be a "physical" problem.

Take a Norwegian paper-clip, and straighten one end.
Insert that end into the small hole in the face-plate of the drive,
and push until you feel resistance.
Then, firmly push another 10mm (1/4 inch) and the drive should "unlock" and open slightly.
Press the open/close button to fully open the tray.

DVD burner drawer will not open every time the button is pressed. When it does open a disk must be in the tray in order to get it to open again.

Most PC DVD/CD drives have a small hole just large enough to insert an unfolded paper clip this will release the rack and pinion drive the the tray will open for you

Good day!
Let's try to open your dvd manually. Look at your dvd drive you will find a small hole just beside the push botton, find a long pin push that pin side the hole, it will open you dvd. Push the dvd botton and try to open it again.
