Hi,
Look at the front on the DVD player. You will see a small round hole. Find a paper clip, straighten it out and put the straight part into the hole on push. This should manually open the DVD tray.
Good luck.

Any operating system that believes the disk is in use may restrict the disk bay from opening by the use of the drive button or a soft eject keystroke. In Windows this most commonly happens when the system believes itself to be actively accessing or installing from the CD/DVD drive when actually the disk is unreadable, the drive has become unmounted, or a software product has locked the drive. In this case, there is no soft key command to force it to open.

You essentially have three choices:

  1. Wait for the application using the drive to time out and then eject the disk normally
  2. Force quit the application or software that is monopolizing the drive then eject the disk.
  3. Restart the computer to terminate any processes currently monopolizing the drive.
  4. Force a paper clip in the small access hole to manually eject the drive. (I know this third is exactly what you didn't want to do)

My disks are DVD-RW and want tp use them over gain and don't know how. Also when do I finalise then and what for


For RW discs, you need to reformat them to reuse them. For your laptop, you should see a format option if you right click on the DVD icon when you have the File Explorer open to Computer (My Computer). (This assumes that the computer has a DVD writer.)

Finalizing the disc enables the contents of the disc to be read on other DVD players. (This isn't always an issue. For example, a disc burned with WinXP should be readable for a computer with Windows 7 without finalizing. However, if the disc was burned by a DVD player, the contents will not be accessible on any other units without being finalized.)

If the disc has been finalized, you need to take another step before reformatting the RW disc. Put the disc in the unit that initially finalized it. Then look for an Unfinalize option. Then format the disc again. (I've never used this feature on my computer. It's easily accessed on my DVD recorder in the same section of the submenu as finalizing the disc.)

I hope this helps.

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.

Dvd rom problem


Try to turn off the vista's burning feature.

It's not yours or anyones burners....just an update in vista which buggered the policies up

Go to your run command and type (start.....Run.....)
type gpedit.msc
Go to User configuration/Administrative templates/Windows components/Windows explorer
On the right pane, double click on "Remove CD burning features" tick the enabled button, then OK.
Reboot or logoff/logon to apply.

If your vista version does not have the gpedit function, do the following.
Open regedit, go to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

In the right pane, if it does not already exist, create a new 32-bit DWORD value. Name the new value as NoCDBurning, and assign the value data to 1.
Reboot or logoff/logon to apply.

This should fix the problem

Dvd stuck in ibook g4 disc drive


Here's possibility 1: from the apple forums" We had a repair come in at work with excactly the same issue, I managed to correct the issue by correcting the CD-Drive connection to the logic board, the customer had a very VERY big smile on his face once I had fixed. I felt so happy after this repair, unfortunatly, it earned our AASP no money tho. But it made me happy to see a smile I caused.
Possibility 2: firmware command:To eject a disc with Open Firmware commands, follow these steps:
1. Restart the computer .
2. Immediately after the startup sound, press and hold the key
combination Command-Option-O-F.
Note: The Command key has the Apple icon on it.
3. Release the keys when you see a white screen that says "Welcome to
Open Firmware."
4. At the prompt, type: eject cd
5. Press Return, then wait a few seconds. The disc drive should eject
any disc that is present, and "ok" appears behind your command when the
action is complete.
6. Type: mac-boot
7. Press Return.

Possiblity 3

If you can't get the CD to eject normally, reboot and hold the Option key. You'll see a startup drive select window. When the cursor changes to an arrow, (be patient, it may take a minute or two) then press your eject key, the CD will eject. You can also try holding the mouse/trackpad button down during a restart.

Need command prompt to run vista operating system dvd


That should be a setting in your bios, either that, or you have an upgrade disk.

If you are trying to reinstall from inside windows, press the Windows Key + R, and when the run dialog opens, type cmd and press enter.

Good luck!
