There should be a small hole, about 2mm in diameter which serves as a manual eject mechanism. Poke it with something like a pin.

    Sorry that I forgot to mention that the hole is usually somewhere near the eject button of your drive.

My cd drive does not recognise cds


Okay. First of all is it a cd drive in your computer as opposed to a DVD drive? If you put a dvd into a cd drive it cannot recognize the dvd. A dvd drive can recognize a cd, but a cd drive cannot recognise a dvd.

Does your computer actually recognize the drive as being present?
If the drive isn't recognized by the computer try:

power off the laptop
Physically remove the cd or dvd drive
power -up the laptop without the cd/dvd drive
power off the latop and refit the dvd/cd drive
power it up again and see if the drive is
recognized

If the drive IS recognized by the laptop but won't play any disk it's probably the drive itself at fault. You can try gently cleaning the inside of the drive - the optic that reads the disk. However, the usual cause is failure of that optic which read the disk information. It cannot be repaired.

The alternative to fitting a new drive is to buy a portable dvd drive. They connect via a usb cable. Have a look on Ebay

Removing cd rom


The optical (CD) drive on your Acer laptop connects to the side of the device and is accessed via the underside of the computer.
If you are having problems with the optical drive on your laptop you should address it as soon as possible, and one thing you may need to do is remove it.
The good news is that even if you aren't particularly tech savvy, you'll find that the process of removing and replacing your optical drive is relatively easy.
Turn your Acer off and remove any power cables that may be attached to the side of the unit. Turn your Acer upside down.
Slide the battery out of its compartment on the underside of the computer.

Locate the circular optical drive retaining screw on the underside of your laptop.
It is located just above the square WiFi compartment in the middle of the computer.

Use your Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw and set it aside.
Grip the optical drive by its edge on the side of the computer and gently pull to remove it from the computer.
Slide a new optical drive into the computer, making sure the disk opening is facing out of the laptop.
Replace the optical drive screw.

Replace the CD Drive on an Acer Aspire 5000
The CD drive of the Acer Aspire 5000 is designed like most other laptop optical drives.
The CD drive is on the right-hand side of the computer and is attached with screws from the back of the case.
All you need to complete the task is a screwdriver.
To avoid electric shock or damage to the laptop, always ground your tools by touching them against a metal object like a table leg before using them on the computer.

Turn the Acer Aspire 5000 laptop off.
Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet. Remove the power cord from the power supply in the side of the laptop.
Flip the laptop over so you are looking at the bottom of the case.
Slide the battery pack off the top of the case.
You'll see the CD drive on the left-hand side of the laptop when you are looking at the bottom of the case.

Unfasten the screws that are holding the CD drive onto the laptop with a screwdriver. Slide the drive out of the case.
Slide the new CD drive into the case and secure it with the screws.
Place the battery pack in the laptop and turn the computer back over so it is sitting on its base. Plug the power cord into the power supply in the side of the laptop.
Plug the other end of the cord into the electrical outlet.

Need to no how to take out old dvd drive and put in a new one


First of all eject the cd draw and leave it open, this makes it a little easier a bit later. Power down the laptop unplug power supply and remove the battery. Turn laptop over, note where the cd drive is and about 6" from the draw edge towards the center of the laptop is a screw, undo the screw and remove it. The cd\dvd drive should slide out with a little persuasion.
Good Look.

Trying to hook up a portable cd rom player to a laptop. I have my 12v power cord but what is the line out?


Don't know why you need portable CD unless your laptop doesn't have a CD-Rom Drive? Your laptop CD-ROM drive can play any music CD's you put in it via the Media Player software on your pc.

CD stuck inside the laptop, not in the CD/drive


If the CD is just a "copy" that can be re-created, then:
1. power OFF laptop
2. straighten-out on end of a paper clip
3. locate the tiny hole on the CD drive
4. push the stylus (the straightened-out paperclip) STRAIGHT into the hole with a strong push.
5. The stylus may need to be longer or stronger.

This always works...

I need solution


Ok, this is a misworded error message on dells end. this laptop does not have a modular bay instead it has a locked in disc drive. Based on what i have seen on other dell laptops i would have to say the cd drive is going bad. To test this try removing the cd drive. Power the laptop on and push the eject button then power the laptop off. Flip the laptop overand there will be a screw to hold the drive in, this screw will be close to the center and will be the only screw in a square hole, remove this screw. Now if you followed my directions, you should have the drive out. Pull the tray out as far as it will go then grab the two sides closest to the laptop and gently pull it out. If you are having problems you can stick a flat screw driver in the square hole and push the piece of metel to the side to remove.

Now power the laptop on it may say something about there not being a cd drive(optical drive) if it does not say: "the device in the system modular bay cannot be identified" then you need to replace to CD drive.
