How to manually open drive door I have a mad dog MD-16XDVD9A4 drive. Stuff got caught when the drive door closed (nearby plant) and now I can't open the door to remove debris. Any way I can manually open...

Turn the computer off and find a large paper clip. straighten the clip and there should be a very small hole below the drive tray. Push the clip into the hole and it will manually open the door.

Will not eject when button is pushed, have to use paper clip

Can you hear the motor running when you press the eject button? If yes then you need to change the drive belt.
Open the RW Drive's cover and locate a belt, which connects the two pulleys, from motor to tray gear. It is usually at the front below the tray. Replace this belt and your trouble will be gone.
If there is no belt inside, then you can apply some grease on the gearing.
This is my personal repair procedure and works always.
However, if the motor is not running the problem cannot be repaired at home.
If you cannot follow my instructions, then take it to the service center for the technician to perform repairs. Its low cost and quick.
Remember: dismantling the drive will void the warranty.
Thank you.

Blinking green light on 1 tray

You could have a faulty drive.
To open the tray, you need a paper clip, straighten it and place it in the small hole below the disc tray, push it in and the tray wull pop out slightly, remove paper clip and pull the tray fully out with your fingers.
Then try to close and open the tray with the push button, if it does not work you need to replace this drive with a new one.

DVD Drive opens automatically when I start up the pc and won't recognize disc

Mary, there is no quick easy solution which will not invlolve your getting your hands "dirty" a bit. Try uninstalling the drive in your computers device manager first of all to see if after you do this and reboot your computer it is still opening, if it is it is an issue with the drive iteself NOT with windows. If the drive has malfunctioned in this manner replacing it is your best alternative but you can TRY this...

In the front of your drive should ( should ) be a little hole near the eject button under the cd tray, it is just right for putting a paper clip which has been straightened oout into it. Try pushing a paper clip into it untill you feel it hit something. What you feel there is an emergency eject button, with pressure on this button try to "cycle" the drive by hitting the eject button and holding in pressure on the paper clip. Hopefully you will reset drives tray to reverse its order. Good Luck

If your DVD/CDROM is not working ie..playing movies or not installing programs it may be becuase you have installed a software program that edited the regitry for the DVD/CDROM - (Limewire, any burning software, etc..) windwos installs an Upperfilter and or a Lowerfilter in the registry for the CDROM - to correct this follow these instructions:

To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box (Vista) or regedit in the Run box (XP), and then click Regedit in the
Programs list if in Vista or click Open in XP.

2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkeys: (must be exact keys)

CD-RW Problems

First, try this:- Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers. If that doesn't work, take off the side of the pc and and look to the back of your burner. You will see an ide cable connected to the back, either try a new cable or try the cable that is connected to the hard disk drive, as there will be another connector available. If you do use the burner on the same cable as your HDD then you will have to set the jumper on the back of the burner to slave. It could be a bad cable or faulty ide motherboard connection.
