Hi,

if your "F" Drive is a CD/DVD/BD drive there should be a small hole somewhere on the front of it.

Simply insert something like a unfolded paper clip in this hole and the tray should pop out. you can then pull it open to retrieve any disc or check for anything that may be jamming it.

If the drive tray just simply wont open at all and you cant hear the motor spinning, a new drive will be needed, or you could put a new motor in it.

if its still under warrenty send it to be fixed or take it back to the place you bought it for a replacement

Hope this Helps

Cd drive wont open or run cds


Try re-seating the cables on the CD drive and where it connects to the motherboard.
Reboot the computer and go into the BIOS and check if the CD drive is detected. If the CD drive is not detected in the BIOS then the CD drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Cd rom door wont open


Do you see blinking light on your CD Drive. If not, you may need to check you power supply to CD Drive.
If yes, may be door looks jam, opening up once may remove any dust to smooth it out again. To open up there is small pin hole on cd drive, generally on the right side, use needle and press it through the pin hole, it will eject the CD Door and you can pull it out completely.

Wont eject


Look at the drive there should be a tiny pin hole near the eject button, insert a needle (safety pin, sewing, etc.) into the pin hole and push this opens the drive.
You can also try opening my computer and right clicking the DVD drive and select eject.

Some disks on a drive will open some wont


Hi there.
If this is a floppy drive then the heads will be dirty and need cleaning just like the old tape player did.
I'm not too sure nowadays but you used to be able to get head cleaning kits for floppy drives.
Also i would suggest that when the drive reads the disks transfer your rare pics to the computer and also back them up to a flash drive or CD.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Drawers wont open or close.


I will assume you are talking about the CD/DVD drive drawer.

Get a large paper clip. unbend it part way and use the straight end to push the drawer out using the little hole located on the front of your drive.

You may have a stuck disk in the drive.
