How to insert a dvd


Either navigate to my computer and on the DVD drive right click eject or press the button that is on the DVD drive itself. Then you would remove any disk in the tray and insert a disk with the shiny side face down.

Thanks

I have a sony computer, the model where every thing is built in behind the screen. a CD is stuck inside and i cannot remove. anyone have any knowledge on what to do to remove same?


The CD, DVD or BD drive tray may not open when trying to eject a disc. This can occur if there is a mechanical failure, or if there is a disk stuck in the drive.
Please follow the following steps to resolve this issue:
  1. Because some applications can prevent the drive tray from opening, close all open applications.

    NOTE: If the Roxio DirectCD software is running, eject the CD using the Roxio DirectCD software.

  2. Attempt to eject the drive tray using the eject command of the operating system.
  3. Restart the computer to the BIOS by continuously tapping the F2 key on startup and, while in the computer BIOS, press the EJECT button on the computer.

    NOTE: If the drive tray ejects in BIOS, but not in the operating system, reinstall the CD, DVD drive.

I need to remove a disk from a Sony NEC Optiarc AD-7640S


CD Stuck in Device
First try the normal methods to remove the disc. Drag its icon to the Trash can in the Dock or select 'Eject' from the File menu. If you are running a virtual machine, e.g. VMFusion, ensure that the CD is disconnected from the virtual machine. This will sometimes allow the CD to now show up in Mac OS X. Shut down the computer and start up whilst holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared. If you have Toast Titanium installed on your computer, choose EJECT DISC from the menubar. Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder Open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button. Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism. Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray. Restart the computer while holding down Command-Option-O-F, to enter the Open Firmware prompt. Type "eject cd" without the quotes, and press return. The disk ought to eject. To start into OS X, type "mac-boot" without the quotes. Press return, and the computer will continue with the startup. (This will not work on an Intel Mac. There is no Open Firmware on Intel Macs. ) If your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button.

I put a snow leopard disk into a old slot loading 600 mhz IMAC running 10.4.11 with the intention of upgrading it. Now I'm getting a gray screen with flashing question mark. I didn't do anything but insert...


Try restarting and holding down the command and C keys at startup. This should eject the disk. If that doesn't work, restart with the mouse button held down. This is also to eject the CD. If it doesn't boot correctly after the CD is out, restart holding command, option, O and F. This should bring up an open firmware command prompt screen. Type in "reset-all", without the quotation marks, and press enter. This will restore the PRAM and NVRAM to factory defaults and should allow normal booting. It may take a bit longer to boot the first time after you do this.

The cd is stuck in the lapptop, it does not come out when i press eject button. Dell xps M1530


Hi there.
Get a large paperclip and straighten it out.
It the CD/DVD has a flap that drops down, pull that down.
Look very close at CD/DVD you will a very small hole on the face of the CD/DVD (usually near the eject button) push the paperclip right in that hole to manually eject the tray.


Good luck

My dvd will not eject on HP pavillion a1120n


You can manually eject the disk by inserting a straighten paper clip into a pinhole that is located in the front tray. Push the paper clip in until the tray pops out.

CD won't eject. I've restarted and tried all the fixes recommended by MAC forums and so far no luck. Any other ideas?


If it is just the computer that isn't ejecting the disk (and not a physically "stuck" DVD) there is a way to force eject.

Go to Apple menu > Restart and hold down your mouse button until the disk ejects.

Or you can try the firmware method...

If all other methods fail, you can try to eject the disk using the firmware (this may not work on all computers). To use this method, start up and briefly use the computer with only the firmware loaded, not the standard Mac OS X interface.

To eject a disc using firmware:
Restart the computer.
When you hear the startup sound, press and hold the Command-Option-O-F keys. (The Command key has an Apple on it.)
Release the keys when you see a white welcome screen.
At the prompt, type:
eject cd

Press Return, then wait a few seconds. The disc drive should eject the disc, and "ok" appears on the screen when the action is complete.
Type:
mac-boot

Press Return.

Your computer starts up normally and you see the familiar Mac OS X desktop.

Dvd will not reject


Use the emergency eject feature. To do this:
  1. Straighten a paperclip
  2. Insert into the tiny hole on the face of the DVD tray (usually near the eject button)
  3. When you feel a bit of resistance, push the paperclip to eject the tray.
  4. The tray will open slightly, allowing you to gently ease it out manually, and you can then remove the DVD.
  5. Press the eject button to shut the CD/DVD tray again.

Hi I cannot get my d.v.d drive to open and close. What do I do?


  1. If the keyboard has a CD/DVD Eject key, press it. The Eject key is usually placed by the volume knob and is marked by a triangle pointing up with a line underneath.
  2. Double-click My Computer .
  3. Right-click the icon for the CD, CDRW, or DVD drive that is stuck, and then click Eject.
  4. If the CD or DVD drive door button is a long clear plastic bar on the front of the PC, press firmly on the right side of bar. Some models have a button on the front panel of the PC to the right of the hinged door. Press the button to eject the drive.
  5. If the drive door button is part of the PC case and is covering the actual drive door, open the door that is part of the PC case and press the Eject button on the faceplate of the drive.
  6. Restart the PC and press the Eject button on the front of the drive when the first screen appears (before Windows launches). If the drive door opens this way but does not open in Windows, another software program is taking control of the CD driver. Try shutting down or configuring any software programs that create discs or monitor the CD or DVD drive.
  7. If the door still does not open, do the following:
    1. Close all programs and shut down the PC.
    2. Unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
    3. Look for the small hole on the faceplate of the CD or DVD drive. This is the manual release. The location of the manual release hole will vary

  1. Straighten the paperclip and insert it into the manual release hole until resistance is felt.
  2. Once the resistance is felt, keep pushing the paper clip until the drawer opens a little.
  3. Remove the paper clip and gently pull out the drawer until the disc is accessible.
  4. Remove the CD and turn on the PC.
If the tray still does not open, do the following steps to check the power cable for the drive. Work on a hard flat surface over a non-carpeted floor:

  1. Turn off the PC.
  2. Unplug all power cords from the back of the PC.
  3. Press and release the Power button on the front of the computer.
  4. Remove the side panel.
e0ef68c.gif
  1. Unplug the power cable and wait five seconds.
  2. Find a different power cable that is not being used, plug the different power cable into the back of the drive, making sure that it fits firmly into the socket. If a different power cable is not available, replug the original power cable into the back of the drive, making sure that it fits firmly into the socket.
  3. Replace the side panel and plug in the power cord.

  1. Turn on the PC and press the eject button on the front of the drive.
If the optical drive does not have the manual eject feature and the CD tray will not open by using the steps in this document or if a disc has shattered inside the drive, the CD, CDRW, DVD drive may need to be replaced.

Thanks
