You should know how to open the case, then replace a worn belt inside.

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.

When I Press Eject button the tray does not open. It is also taking too much time during booting.

Use a pin and insert in the emergency eject hole (usually in the center below the tray) and then you can eject the drive tray with force. It is time you planned for a new drive.

Untill then please insert a music CD into the drive tray and leave it there, this will ensure the eject will work (most of the time). Booting time will definitely increase if the drive has issues, reading or responding.

The DVD tray doesnt eject

either it is the ribbon wire, the motor that ejects the tray or the belt that connect the tray and motor is the problem. In case the above three are fine, replace the drive as the sparking might kill your moterboard.

Tray will not eject on LTR 16102B CD-RW

Most likely due to a worn belt. You can use a paper clip in the manual eject hole while pressing the button repeatedly to get it open. The belt or the drive will need to be replaced.

CD Drive not Ejecting properly

Hi, Since the warranty period has expired I will assume that the CD/RW has been in use for some time. Normally a small belt powered by a motor drives a gear that slides the tray out. Sometimes this belt is loose, warped or plain cut. Replacing the belt should solve the problem. You have to open the CD and it is near the front just below the tray. In other instances, the grease on the toothed railing at the sides and/or underneath the tray gets gummed up, cleaning and repacking with new light grease should take care of that. Rarely (but still does happen), the motor itself burns up and replacement (if you can get the part) is in order. An interim fix is to push a small straightened metal paperclip at a small hole below the tray cover/lip and slightly push till the tray partially opens. You can then manually pull it out. Hope this be of some help/idea to you. Good luck and kind regards.

CD-RW Problem

There some few tips you can try. Power down the computer then open the cd tray by inserting a sharp object in the small hole near the tray. Look for this hole, then using the sharp object push it pretty hard. With the other hand try to pull the tray out. Once you've pulled it power on the computer (with the cd-rw's tray opened) and watch what the cd-rw is actually doing now. If after it retracts the tray it is doing the same, you will need to dissasemble it. If you are willing to try this, please post another message and also specify there what did the cd-rw drive do when you've applied the method i've told you before.
