Re: cd drive

It could be as simple as a dirty head or the drive is busted. If it is just dirty, get an optic drive cleaner, run the cleaner.

Re. TEAC CD-224E, model version -B66. The drive will only open when inserting a pin in the release hole. When a disc is inserted and the drive closed the computer can not read it, the disc keeps...

This is an indication of mechanical failure of some part of the ejection mechanism. Since they are more expensive to fix than the drive is worth, replacement is your best option.

In addition, since the CD remains spun up and the activity light doesn't go out, there's probably something else wrong with the drive in addition to the failed ejection component.

Cd drive led light flashes orange four to five times then stops

Given all the things that you ahev done, clean the drive with a CD/DVD cleaner and / or air duster. Check the device is enabled in Device Manager and it shows no errors. If it does then read the explanation. If not and it looks OK you will most likely need a new drive!

Same problem

you may have a label or even the metal slide piece stuck in the mechanism. Take it to a computer shop so you dont do more damage trying to open it. Some CD drives have a small reset hole on the front that when an open paper clip is inserted it allows rejection but if a lable is stuck it needs specialized intervention, especially for the 3.5 drive that has metal slide from disk jammed in it
