My XPS 1640 is not ejecting DVDs, touch buttons does not function and firmware upgrade of OPTIARC DVD RW AD 7640s provided no relief. Any can help me.


Try going to MY COMPUTER, right click the drive, Click Eject.
If no change restart they system as sometimes software locks the drive. Also try booting in safe mode (Press F8 at boot) see if it will eject there.
If the drive still will not eject, then remove drive

remove the disc manually. reseat the drive and try it again. If still no go, replace the drive

Did a system restore. Updated optical drivers and bios. Drive will only read software cd's, will not read any game dvd's, or any dvd for that matter. Running windows 7, drive is optiarc ad-7640S.


Not sure what brand and model of computer you have but this may help...

Try looking for a Chipset utility update from the manufactur of your computer's website for your particular computer model, re-install it if you already installed it.

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.

My sony optiarc AD-7540A wont burn but read norrmaly


If the CD is not a writable disc, it will not burn. Sometimes certain CDs will never burn at all. Some CDs can burn once and only once ever. Be careful when burning and make sure to burn right the first time. Check with your CD's maker for specific details.
