Update the firm ware for this drive if that is possible. This will rewrite the eprom data and hopefully restore lost functionality.

I have an Acer. I can't open the dvd door by pressing the latch, though I can open by inserting a pin through hole. Please help.

I cannot figure out how to open my dvd drive on my new asus laptop


What is the make and model of your laptop? Some new Asus laptops do not have CD/DVD drives - You need to use an external drive.

My cd/dvd burner driver is not working nor will it open


Sounds like the drive likely died or became disconnected within the laptop. Since it is a laptop you should take it into a compaq service provider and ask them to replace or repair it, it will likely be cheap and fairly easy. I wouldn't recommend doing it yourself however, unless you are familiar with the innards of a laptop. Hope this helps, good luck.

Need to remove a CD from DVD drive when computer won't reboot


In a laptop drive, there is a small hole in the door near the "open" button. Gently push a straightened-out paper clip into the hole and the drive will open.

In full-size drives used in desktops, the hole is usually under the tray. Again, push a straightened-out paper clip into the hole to open the tray. Once the tray slides out you can open it the rest of the way by hand.

The driver door will not open, no red light like there is no power to the unit.


If it is a laptop drive, check for online videos in disconnecting the drive for the PC. Reconnect and try again. A little loose contact might be the problem.
