Chances are the cd isn't properly seated. There should be a tiny hole in the front panel of the cd/cvd. Push the end of a paper clip or what ever you have handy into the hole. This is an emergency eject for the cd/dvd. Then check to make sure the cd was properly seated and retry. If this fixed your problem please rate fix. If not and you need more help please add a comment and I'll be glad to assist you more. Thanks.

My disk is in the cd/dvd and it wont eject the cd/dvd is less than a year old. why is it stuck?


Anonyomous,
You should have a small pin hole on the front of the face of the cd/dvd drive that you could put a small paper clip in and eject the cdrom drive. Make sure the computer is off before sticking the the paper clip in the drive.

Acer aspire t180 cd tray wont open


It could be a few things but does not sound software related. 1.) The drive is bad (happens more often than you would think). 2.) No power to the cd drive (less likely)-The power cable attached to the cd drive has come loose or fallen off. You will need to open up the computer case to check. 2.) A cd is stuck in it (even more less likey)There is usually a tiny hole on the front of the cd drive that you can fit the end of a paper clip into. Push the paper clip in and it should force the cd tray to open. You will need to push the tray closed with your hand. Considering you can buy a new CD Drive for about $40 now, and the fact that more than likely the drive is bad, I would go out to Best Buy and get a new drive, and replace the one you have. If for some reason that does not work, you should be able to return the new drive to the store.

Can't eject CD from CD rom


Disassembling may be your only option, if the CD is Broken or jammed. Try rebooting and pushing the DVD rom button at boot. I had a DVD explode, I had to remove the drive and disassembling the DVD rom to remove all the pieces.

Cd instil


if you are trying you to say there is a CD in CD-Rom drive and you can't get it out, then it is quite easy to remove the CD. There is a very small hole by the eject button on CD-ROM. You will need to put a very thin and strong tool and push it forward through the hole. This will eject CD.

Im having trouble burning a cd. it goes through the whole cd and it ejects the cd and says that the disk didnt burn


For $40, buy a replacement CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" device -- much cheaper than paying a qualified technician to try to trouble-shoot, and then make the same "replace it" recommendation.

CD Wont eject


Tried in Safe Mode Windows? Worst case is the shut it down, straighten a small paper clip, push it into the small hole on the surface of the DVD-ROM cover (It's a standard to have one). It should eject!
If system will not eject the CD due to a software locked it down, please list softwares the XPS have installed.

Cd roms wont read it says i/o device error


Your error is usually indicates that the drive can't read the CD. I ask everyone these two: check to make sure the CD is right-side up (label facing up or to the right on a vertical oriented drive) and did you insert a DVD into a CD drive? Can you use Windows Explorer and right-click on the CD drive letter and select eject and it works? If not, a driver could be missing. Lastly, if you inserted a blank CD (that can be written to) into a CD drive that can only read CD's, you'll get that error.

Your CD-ROM may still be functional. The tray may just be stuck, instead of broken. First let's remove the CD.

Get a large paperclip and bend the end out straight. Look for a tiny hole underneath the CDS tray. Push the end of the paperclip into it, and it should open the CD tray a little. Then pull it out the rest of the way and get your CD out. Then try pushing the eject button on the CD-ROM to get the tray to go back in. It may take several trys. If that does not work push the tray in, slowly. Then try the eject button again. I hope that works.

If it does not you can continue to use the CD of course (lots of CD-ROMs have paperclips hanging out of them. And I've seen the problem go away, occasionally, after continued opening and pushing back the tray.
