There are three ways to eject a CD or DVD from your PC or a Laptop. The first is the eject button on the disc drive itself. If it is not working go to "my computer", in Vista it is just called "computer" and once it opens, find the drive (it should say DVD drive or CD drive, or something along those lines). Mouse over that drive, right click and then go down the drop down menu and click on eject. It should open unless the drive is broken. If the power is off or if the drive is broken then there is a small hole next to the eject button. Take a large paper clip, straighten at least half of it out and go straight into this hole. When you feel it stop, lightly press in further. You should feel a little springy presure for less than an 1/8 of an inch. It should, at that point, release the drive bay. You can then manually pull the tray out and retrive any disc that may be inside.

Try right clicking the CD drive in my computer and then click eject. If that doesn't work, look closely and you will see a tiny hole normally next to the eject button, sometimes there is just a grove. Take a straightened paper clip and insert it in that hole. This should open the drive. You may have to turn the computer off for this to work. If that does not work you will have to try prying it open with a butter knife. It may damage the drive but seems it is already damaged.

Where do I find the eject key to eject a cd from my Dell studio laptop?


Hi,

There should be a button on the DVD/CD drive itself, just push that small button and the tray should eject.
If you can't fine the button double click on "Computer" or "My Computer" highlight the DVD/CD in the list, right click on the DVD/CD and select "eject" from the list.
The tray should now eject.




Regards.

Dell xps m1330 dvd drive will not eject cd inside


Im a dell tech, and i hate those cdrom styles, but, that is what the consumer wants, so we make them. Try starting the machine, then press F2 to enter the BIOS. once in the bios, press the eject button. listen for any noises, (an attempt to eject). if you hear a sound, it means the drive should be capable of ejecting the disc, and perhaps the disc has not seated correctly. If the disc will not eject, you must contact Dell. This is from the DELL dcse site: " Optical Drive The XPS M1330 has a slot-loading optical drive instead of a conventional tray-loading module. There is no mechanical eject mechanism for the drive to eject stuck discs. This means you must replace the drive if a disc gets stuck in the drive. After replacing the drive, disassemble the old drive to remove the disc for the customer."

Ejecting cd dell studio 17


Supposing that the Studio 15 / 17 has a slot loading drive:

You can either press the eject button above the keyboard (the touch sensitive one)

or

Go to 'Computer' in Vista and right click the CD/DVD drive. Then click 'Eject'.

This should work.
