Question about Computers & Internet
My drive does not get open buy pressing the eject button many time i make to open it by inserting a pin in its hole every time ,what i have to do to repair it at home
It's not the motor in most of these problems, it's the drive belt between the motor pulley and the tray mechanism pulley. They are tiny, and get worn easily. Replacing this with a better quality belt, or a small "O-ring" usually solves the problem.

Or right click on your cd/dvd icon and select eject.
see if this works.

Actually the problem u got is a faulty motor driving the cd tray......
this happens to every single cd/dvd drive unless it is not properly handled by us....one solution is to replace the motor in it....no idea how much it will cost...
and nowadays the cost of cd/dvd writer cost has reduced a lot...better wait for few days and upgrade it to a blueray thing....

Tips for a great answer:
Whether you use your DVD drive to install software, make backups of your personal files or watch movies, having that drive onboard makes your computer more useful and more versatile.
While DVD drives function normally most of the time, sometimes a DVD will become stuck in the drive, and the tray will refuse to open.
Knowing what steps to take to resolve the situation allows you to start enjoying the advantages of the DVD drive again.
Log on to your computer and click the "Start" button. Choose "Shut down" from the menu and then choose "Restart." Wait for the computer to restart, then press the eject button repeatedly.
Remove the DVD if the drive pops out.
Since there is no hole skip this and go to cleaning the lens.
Shine a flashlight on the DVD tray and locate the small hole near the eject button.
This is the bypass hole and it allows you to eject a DVD when it becomes stuck.
Insert an unbent paper clip into the hole and push it in until you hear the DVD begin to spin. Push the paper clip in until the drive pops out.
Remove the DVD and insert another one.
Use the bypass hole again if the new DVD becomes stuck.
If the new DVD sticks as well, you need to clean the laser lens on the DVD drive.
Insert a laser lens cleaning DVD and close the tray.
Run the laser lens cleaning program at least three or four times to make sure the lens receives a thorough cleaning.
Restart your computer and insert a DVD to test the unit.
