    I too have a cd draw that wont open. Short of taking a hammer to it I am fresh out of ideas.

    I found my problem. When I installed the internal TDK 440N burner I confused the flat cables and connected the wrong cable from the motherboard to the burner. When I connected the right cable from the motherboard to the burner the burner works just fine. Sorry to have bothered you all with my goof. Thanks much for your help.

First, you'll need a paperclip. Unfold it so there is 1 to 2 inches that is straight.

Now, look closely at your drive door. There should be a very small pinhole either above or below it.

Insert the paperclip. There is a very small gear that when rotated, will manually open the drive door.

Retract and reinsert the paper clip as many times as it takes to eject the drive enough so you can hold onto it.
Pull Out the CD or DVD Drive.

Now slowly pull the drive out until it is fully retracted. Remove your stuck CD or DVD, and slowly push the drive bay back until the door is closed.

My DVD drive does not open


Yes, there is a manual way to open it. On most DVD players there is a small hole underneath the door. Push a paperclip in there until the door pops open a little. Then, pull open the door and remove your disk.

CD burning


probably the upper/lower filters fix. Check your device manager and see if the cdrom is reporting error codes. If it's reporting one, you have to do this:

remove the upper/lower filters from the registry(google it) and then reinstall your burning software.

use memorex brand cdr they are the most compatable (readable media ) to many cd& dvd writers .

the reason the cd writer dosent open often is because its usually trying to read poor quality media use good quality memorex cdr you will see a big difference in performance.

Digital keychain


I also had the same problem where the keychain would not turn on even though I charged it and the light was green. I finally removed all of the pictures from it and tried charging it on my cellphone charger. This did not work either. Out of frustration, I shook the stupid keychain and the red light came on. I put it down carefully and waited several hours until the light became green. Now the keychain does turn on. I have not yet put the pictures back on, but it does turn on and off. If I have more trouble after I put the pictures back on, I'll let you know.

Opening a memorex cd


It is always possible the person has even less knowledge of burning than you do... And they may have not done it correctly. There are a few different possibilities, of which may not be good for you. The best way for the files to be retrieved, is to put it back in the other PC and try to open. If the person did an open write ( didn't close out the disk ) You need to have a PC, writer/reader, and software that can open it up... Also, in a few rare instances, the drives have slight differences that the 2 can't read disks that are created by the other... There is also a slight possibility that the person went through the motions, and actually burned nothing. And finally, the CD Drive you have may be shot... Try another cd, and make sure that your drive works...

My DVD drive does not open


I suggest you may have accidently put another disk in your DVD drive on top of the one used previously without removing it first: I know, I did just that, and the teeth may now be sheared on the drive wheels which means it will probably need replacing with a new one.
To open manually, look for the tiny hole beside the Open/close button just under the drawer and insert a long slim steel probe which will activate a switch to open the drawer. (Have a look among your kitchen utensils, there might be something there).
Hope it works, but you may find you need a new DVD/RW unit, so have a look around in the New Year Sales and use the opportunity to buy the best you can find at a bargain price.
