I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 and i put a DVD into the drive, but the computer isn't recognizing it and now it won't eject. There's a little light next to the eject button ans usually it flashes green when it has a DVD/CD in it but it's not flashing...
You can get the DVD out by putting a pin into the little hold on the other side of the eject button. Try putting an audio CD into the drive and see if it recognizes it. If it won't see anything and there's no light, it's probably broken and time for a trip to the computer repair shop of your choice.

turn the laptop off and then over you will see a thumb slider and possibly a screw remove screw (if present) slide ROM lock (thumb slide) and slide ROM out away from compy...and slide it back in and reboot make sure you here the "click" assuring that its in the LOCKED position again.
Try going to the drive, in my computer ** should be named CD/DVD Or D: E: right click and press eject. Alternatively:-
if you look carefully at the dvd drive, it has a small pinhole in the front drawer. push a paper-clip sized piece of metal, or small jewellers screwdriver into the hole, this will force the drawer open.
You can see a hole located on the tray of the cd rom drive. Commonly seen beside the button to eject the cd out. Grab a small pin and push the hole and this should eject the tray. Close the tray again by pressing the button. Eject it using the button. If everything still failed, call up Dell to have the CD Rom Drive replaced.
