Hello,
First, have you used eject of operating system, under computer then choosing drive, right click then enter eject. Does this work, ejecting tray from drive?

If this operation works, then your problem is one of two issues which is causing a connection failure. First using an air can with hose, the thin red or white one that cam with it when purchased. Blast air around the outer edges of button on multi drive face, see if some dust or airborne contaminate has blocked connection. If this doesn’t work, in addition you are unable to survive use operating system to operate this function, then you have to open tower and remove the multi drive and the face plate of this multi drive should be interchangeable for color matching to different towers. Slowly pull off face plate carefully so not to break it. Inspect the multi drive and clean accordingly with air or a clinging swab, it’s like a long Q-Tip. Denatured alcohol works well to remove contaminates and if you are without testing connections, a USB kit with power supply? The only way to check if your cleaning was successful is to reinstall it. Removal & installation is provided at the end of this message.

If operating system does not eject tray, and if it is not on warranty, junk it, buy a new one. This is a much cheaper then a labor intensive check of electronics. Even replacing button, is costly compared to purchasing a new unit.

Plus while removing multi drive, which is absolutely simple and not to be feared, easier on laptop, notebook then PC, but both are simple a five year old can do it. But you’re on a PC desktop, so if you’re already familiar you might get lucky and find it was a plug loses. Hay I always think positive even if the odds are better to win the lottery.

Open tower and remove the power supply the connector remembering to reverse install starting with connecter the power supply. Ok on each side of drive, you should see the mounting clips which are unlocked by an opposite pulling towards each clip and pull up and out. Then use a Philips screw driver and remove clips from the sides of the multi drive. Either IDD or SATA connection used depends when your computer was manufactured. IDD is cheaper then SATA, not a big spread but 10 to 20 dollars usually.
Not sure whether IDD or SATA , the best thing is take it with you and go to Comp USA, these guys are really aggressively priced for volume sales rather then the others who can be significantly higher. Bring your Multi Drive with you and they can either replace the exact unit or with a compatible to your system and OME manufacturer of system unit. PC is more receptive to a new drive then a notebook, these usually require a specific drive which can be one of maybe three or four certain drives that are compatible to OEM Programming coexisting with windows.

I must warn you that if you are not comfortable with dismantling you multi drive, don’t, it’s actually cheaper to buy a new one then to fix one. 30 to 40 dollars no more then 100 dollars, But for blue ray I have seen anywhere between 100 to 200 depending on where bought and final manufacturer, this is because some brands like HP and Sony also use Panasonic, liteon, Matshita and others then one they have manufactured.

Good luck.
ZQDesign.

How can i open my cd drive to insert my cd?


If the button on the drive won't pop open the drive, then you need to find out what is causing it to stick closed. Most drives have a tiny hole on the door so you can push a paper clip in it to open the door.

The gears have probably come out of sync, meaning the tray is riding on the limit switch. You need to remove the deck, dismantle and re-sync the drawer mech. Check the limit switch isnt bent, it's quite flimsy

My xbox 360 tray wont stay close how do i fix it


Do you mean the CD tray won't stay closed? If so check the simple things first. The button that you push to open and close the tray is actually a lever that pushes a much smaller button below it. Make sure that your eject button is not stuck down for some reason. Check your cd tray and the bay to make sure nothing got inside that is preventing the cd tray from closing all the way. I believe if something gets in the way the tray will automatically re-open. You can also take some compressed air and blow out the cd tray to remove any debris that may be blocking the tray from closing.
If none of the above simple steps work I believe it boils down to 2 things. 1. An object inside the case or tray that is preventing it from closing all the way or... 2. The eject button is stuck down.
If your comfortable with it you can take apart your xbox case and remove your CD/DVD player and ensure the button works properly. You can do a search on this site or youtube for instructions on how to take the case apart if needed. Once the case is apart the CD/DVD player is easily removed. You will then notice that the switch you press on the outside of the Xbox to open and close the CD/DVD tray is actually a lever that presses a much smaller switch directly on the front of the CD/DVD unit. You can then test your eject switch directly by pressing the button directly with a ball point pen or a pin. If the bay does not open and close properly at this point it may be necessary to replace the CD/DVD player and I do not know if it can be replaced or not. Hope this helps.

CD tray not opeing


Perhaps it didn't fully latch so the CD drive doesn't think it's closed? Try opening and closing the door manually by straightening out a paperclip, then inserting it into the little hole in the front of the CD door. That should open it. Once open, close it and see if it will now open when you press the Open/Close button.
