If the tray fails to open when hitting the eject button on the face of the drive; take a paper clip, straiten on end push it into the small hole on the front of the drive. This will eject the tray and allow you to use the Reader/Burner. Try grabbing the tray and move it in and out aggressively, and do that about 10 times to loosen up the drive motor and clean out grime that collect on the internal parts.
CD Drive Tray problems There are two ways to open the CD 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 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 continue having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD drive is faulty and needs replacing.
In the front of the loading tray you will see a small pin hole, get a fine jeweler screwdriver or a needle push in until you hear click the door will pop open allowing access to your cd/dvd disc, if the driver won't work it will probably have to be replaced.
On the front of the tray you should see a small pin hole, get a fine jewelers screwdriver or needle, next push it in until you hear a click, the door should pop open, now pull it out all the way and check for any debris or possible broken belt or slippage under tray. If you can't find anything try a disc to see if it will work, if yes! try the eject button if no! remove disc as outlined and have it checked out.
You can open manually using small metal stick (metal paper clip). Turn off PC, poke small hole (under the tray) gently. Check the rubber ring (like fan belt that goes to electrical motor), it might too loose.
There are a couple of possibilities here, first it could just be stuck. If you hit the eject button and light flashes, there may be a stuck factor here. Look for the very small hole on the door by the eject button and push an opened paperclip in the hole, this will trigger the manual eject mechanism. With the tray opened feel the way the tray moves along its geared slide. If it seems too tight or it sticks there maybe something mechanical that has happened to it. Try to close it again and try the eject button and see if it will cycle. Also try to right click on the drive itself (Open "My Computer" to view the drives) and click on "Eject" and see if it triggers the command.
Do you hear a loud "Thunk" when you try? It's very likely that you have a drive that has a magnet that's too strong. Many 360 drives suffer from this. With a balled fist hit the top of your Xbox right above the DVD drive firmly. This should cause the tray to open.
Look on the front of your cd-rom, there should be a small hole somewhere just under the tray portion. Turn off your machine (to avoid possible short-circuit issues) and use a thin piece of wire (ie: a straightened paper clip) and insert it into this hole. Push it gently, you will be able to feel the unit unlocking itself and the tray will open slightly. Now you can use your fingers to pull the tray open. Be gentle when opening, you don't want to mess up the gearing.
use a paper clip fold it out and push it straight in carefully into the eject hole in the cd drive. It is a small hole on the cd drive usually close to the eject button. You will feel a release on the inside. When you push it you will hear it/feel it eject. Don't push real hard as you don't want to bend the paper clip and get it stuck in the hole
All CDs & DVDs have a tiny hole on the drive tray.
Get a paper clip, straighten the paper clip and insert it into this hole and push the paper clip in gently, the tray will release and pop out, then you can remove your disc.
You can do this without the laptop being powered up or powered down.
