Question about Teac CD-224E (cd224eb33) CD-ROM Drive

1 Answer

Re. TEAC CD-224E, model version -B66. The drive will only open when inserting a pin in the release hole. When a disc is inserted and the drive closed the computer can not read it, the disc keeps spinning and the light remains flashing. Can you advise please. Many thanks, Mike Knox

This is an indication of mechanical failure of some part of the ejection mechanism. Since they are more expensive to fix than the drive is worth, replacement is your best option.

In addition, since the CD remains spun up and the activity light doesn't go out, there's probably something else wrong with the drive in addition to the failed ejection component.

The hardware of your CD/DVD drive has failed. Either replace it, or "network" your two computers together, to "share" the working CD/DVD drive across your network.

My CD writer will not open to insert the CD. What


Hello,

Look for the small hole on the faceplate of the CD or DVD drive. This is the manual release. Straighten the paperclip and insert it into the manual release hole until resistance is felt.

Once the resistance is felt, keep pushing the paper clip until the drawer opens a little.

Remove the paper clip and gently pull out the drawer until the disc is accessible.

Just replace the drive - the Teac CD-224E is housed in the SelectBay housing and any Teac CD-224E that came out of Toshiba will do. eBay would be your best bet. If you pay more than $10 then you must be a tourist...
