The Acer 5610 has an emergency eject hole to the right of the eject button on the right side of the computer. Find a paperclip and unfold it (or small allan wrench), push the end of the paper clip into the hole until you feel pressure. Press firmly and the optical disc tray should come slightly out of the machine. Grab and pull the tray out (gently). This should work even without power to the drive on any machine tray optical drive, if the tray mechanism is undamaged.
For a slot-loading optical drive, it's a bit trickier. You can try sliding another object into the slot and using it to pry or lift the stuck disc. The safest option is to use another optical disc or credit card sized item and double-sided sticky tape. Put a piece of the tape on the item and then remove the paper from the other side of the sticky tape. Slide the item into the drive with the sticky tape towards the stuck disc (down for most computers). Once far enough into the drive, lower your item and press the tape firmly onto the stuck disc. Lift up and try to pull the stuck disc up and out of the drive.
If you correctly meant PS3 then there is actually no tray to open. The discs slide in and out of the slot.
If you instead were talking about a 360, since you posted in that section, here is a tip. When you hit the eject button you will likely here a bit of a "thunk" sound. Once you hear that ball your fist and hit the top of the Xbox just above the DVD drive. This should cause the tray to slide open.
CD Stuck in Device 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.
There is no door.The DVD is a slot-loading Superdrive. The disk slides in and boots up. It is on the right side of the unit.
look at page 18 , in the
Basic Features of Your MacBook section in the user manual:
if the iMac is one of the computers with the slot-load drive (you don't load the disc into a tray before it goes into the computer), then placing a disc smaller than a regular CD/DVD will damage the CD drive and will be very hard to remove.
you could buy an external CD/DVD drive and then use smaller discs with the iMac.
You will need to get back the cover off and the laser tray cover off the fix this.
When putting the CD tray back in, the white piece that raises and lowers the Disc/laser frame has a white peg sticking up. before putting the Cd tray back in, slide the white piece all the way to the right towards the reset/eject buttons. guide the cd tray so that the white pin guides into the slot on the bottom of the cd tray. You might want to look at the bottom of the CD tray to see the track. The white pin/peg has to travel in this slot.
