    I haven't heard back since I explained this is a CD stuck in my Dell Studio 1500 Laptop.

    Please advise!

    I am using a laptop computer; a CD is stuck in the slot (it won't play or eject when I use the eject drive). When I press on the eject button, there is a whiring sound as if it is trying to do something, but then that stops and the CD is still in the slot.
    Is there any way to get it to eject.
    This is my fourth try; the previous three have not been applicable or didn't work.
    If this next "expert" doesn't have the "right" answer, please refund my money.

Hello,

firstly, i advice you turn your computer off. Unplug the power cord from the outlet. Find a large paperclip and straighten one end of it.
Locate the small hole on the front of your CD ROM drive on your computer. If you don't find a small hole, check to see if there is a small grove below the CD ROM drive door.
Insert the paperclip into the hole so you can release the CD ROM drive door catch. When you feel some resistance, keep pushing until the door opens.
Remove the paperclip and use your hand to physically pull the door out all of the way, if necessary.
Remove the CD when the CD ROM drive opens.

Take care.

    There is a small

    push the paper clip into the hole, try to keep it straight. drive
    should pop right out.

Hi,
its too simple. you dont need to worry.. Check the front side of the CD ROM. you will find there one small hole. Now just take a thing, which is around the 4 to 6 inch (min is 4") long and can pass through that hole (for eg. take medium size U pin, and remove all bends and make it straight or long needle) Now insert this equipment in that hole and press. your ROM will eject...
Hope this has helped you ... Thanks....

Only way is to remove the drive and take front off it and Force the drive out
you may need to replace drive afterwards
But u can get the current disk out by forcing the drive out there just on pullys and don't damage drive if pulled out.

    Do you know that we are talking about a laptop. I wouldn't have any idea how to take out a drive.

    If you don't know how to do this, please just let me know.

    Thanks.

If the eject button wont work, try to open your tower, remove the necessary screws attached to the covers. Take the cd drive out of the tower. Try to gently press on the middle part of the drive. I know you have tried the pin hole but know that if you feel a bit resistance, keep pushing using the pin until the door opens then manually pull the tray out. If it still wont work, prying would be the last resort.

How To Eject CD from CD-ROM drive if it is Stuck :

If you have a CD into CD-ROM drive and it is stuck and you are trying to eject tray of CDROM by pressing the eject button or windows eject command but CD won't eject as there is no command to eject a stuck compact disc from the CDROM drive then this article is for you.

Take a long pin around 3 inch, (also known as CD ejector) it must be hard enough, insert this pin inside the hole and push a little. The CD tray will slightly move to out.

Step 3: Now you may manually pull the tray and you are done. You have successfully ejected the stucked CD.

Loaded a cd to upgrade firmware, firmware would not load. eject button would not eject. read manual, says to push eject at the same time you plug in the electric cord,still would not eject. Any...


Please try in this way.

Disconnect power.
Connect power back, and keep REPEATEDLY pressing the eject button while you connect. If still no ject press power on button while you keep hitting the ehect button. You need to press eject on the unit, do not use the remote.

If that does not work, then the unit must be taken apart.

I have a sony computer, the model where every thing is built in behind the screen. a CD is stuck inside and i cannot remove. anyone have any knowledge on what to do to remove same?


The CD, DVD or BD drive tray may not open when trying to eject a disc. This can occur if there is a mechanical failure, or if there is a disk stuck in the drive.
Please follow the following steps to resolve this issue:
  1. Because some applications can prevent the drive tray from opening, close all open applications.

    NOTE: If the Roxio DirectCD software is running, eject the CD using the Roxio DirectCD software.

  2. Attempt to eject the drive tray using the eject command of the operating system.
  3. Restart the computer to the BIOS by continuously tapping the F2 key on startup and, while in the computer BIOS, press the EJECT button on the computer.

    NOTE: If the drive tray ejects in BIOS, but not in the operating system, reinstall the CD, DVD drive.

A dvd is stuck in the drive. It resists all attempts at removal including the ''eject cd'' command in Open Firmware. Can I manually remove it?


The iMac (Slot loading) computer's disc eject mechanism is electrical instead of mechanical. To eject a CD-ROM disc at startup that contains system software, press the mouse button until the computer ejects the disc. If the disc does not contain system software, wait for the iMac to start up and drag the disc icon to the Trash.

If either of these steps fails to eject the disc, push the drive's manual eject button with a small, blunt object like a paper clip. This button is located to the right of the CD/DVD slot as shown in Figure 1. The computer must be turned on to eject a disc in this manner.


ht3007_1.gifFigure 1 Manual eject button

Once the disc is ejected, it extends just beyond its center hole so you can remove it from the drive. If the disc fails to eject, while holding in the paper clip, use another CD to gently push against the inserted CD. This gentle pressure may help to release the inserted CD.

Important: After ejecting the disc with the manual eject button, you must restart the iMac in order for the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive to work.

My cd is stuck in macbook and is not being read by my computer it only makes a funny sound when i reload it


A CD or DVD disc can become stuck in your Macintosh. It may not be appearing on your desktop or could be causing the computer to lock up if the computer cannot recognize it properly.
[edit] Solutions
  • First try the normal methods to remove the disc. Drag its icon to the Trash can in the Dock or select 'Eject' from the File menu.
  • If you are running a virtual machine, e.g. VMFusion, ensure that the CD is disconnected from the virtual machine. This will sometimes allow the CD to now show up in Mac OS X.
  • Shut down the computer and start up whilst holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared.
  • If you have Toast Titanium installed on your computer, choose EJECT DISC from the menubar.
  • Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder
  • Open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button.
  • Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism.
  • Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray.
  • Restart the computer while holding down Command-Option-O-F, to enter the Open Firmware prompt. Type "eject cd" without the quotes, and press return. The disk ought to eject. To start into OS X, type "mac-boot" without the quotes. Press return, and the computer will continue with the startup. (This will not work on an Intel Mac. There is no Open Firmware on Intel Macs. )
  • If your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button.
