Will not eject


If it is your CD drive that you are having problems ejecting then fixing this is no problem. Take a paper clip and straighten it out. Insert the paper clip into the small hole that is next to the eject button. You may need to push fairly hard but the tray will come out.

My PC won't allow me to right click to choose the eject option for a CD. I want to know if there is a way to remove the CD manually.


The DVD drive itself has a small horizontal 'eject' button that you can press to eject the disc.
If the button fails the disc is stuck however the DVD drive will have a small hole near the eject button- about 2mm in diameter. Straighten a paperclip or similar and push into the hole until the disc drive mechanism releases and opens.

DVD will not eject


To eject a disc.
  1. Use the eject option in the menu bar by selecting open from the drop down menu.
  2. Press the eject or F12 key on the keyboard.
  3. Open the drive face plate and insert the end of a paperclip into the small hole under the drive tray area. This will pop the tray open.

DVDR 3350H KEEP READING AND WON'T EJECT DISC


Look under the faceplate where the disc tray ejects and see if there is a small hole. If so, use a straightened paper clip to eject the disc manually by pushing it into the hole about an inch. If that works, then reset the power on the unit and try a nonrecorded type disc to see if the unit works at all.

Other than that, you'll have to take the unit apart to get your disc out.

Hope that helps...

Depending on the type of disc drive that you have in your Xbox 360 console, use one of the following methods:

 

Method A: Insert a straightened paper clip or another small, stiff wire into the first hole from the left side of the disc tray. To release the disc tray, push the paperclip into the hole to press the manual eject mechanism. The manual eject mechanism is a white lever that is visible behind the console casing. The hole is located about one-and-a-half inches (approximately four centimeters) from the left edge of the disc tray.

 

Method B: Insert a straightened paper clip or another small, stiff wire into the second hole from the left side of the disc tray. Push the paperclip repeatedly into the hole to turn a gear to release the disc tray. The hole is located about one-and-a-half inches (approximately four centimeters) from the left edge of the disc tray.

 

Method C: Insert a straightened paper clip or another small, stiff wire into the into the hole that is directly under the "X3" in the Xbox 360 label on the disc tray to release the disc tray. The hole is located about one inch from the right edge of the disc tray.

 

In each case, make sure that you line up the paperclip or stiff wire to pass through another notch behind the hole on the console casing.
