Most cd/rw drives have a small pin sized hole near the physical eject button. Try putting a pin or paperclip in this hole to eject your media then you may need to replace the drive if the usual eject mechanism doesn't work after a couple of reboots.

Hi there,

Try to find that little tiny hole on your cdrom's door and push a paperclip and hold it until it ejects. That's another way to eject the cdrom.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Disk won't eject on my iMac


Ok, I assume you have hit the eject button on the keyboard. Try dragging the CD icon on the desktop to the trash can. If that doesn't work, Shut down the computer and start up while 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. Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism. Another option is to open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button. Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder. Another option is to Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray. Lastly 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. One of these should work.

DVD reader


Hi I'm sorry you are having trouble,
OK, when was the last time your CD/DVD trey opened properly when instructed by pressing the eject button on your keyboard ?
This (and all other apple computers now) machine does not have a button other than the keyboard eject button to eject or open the trey. The eject button is usually the last key at the top right hand of the keyboard. If you are not using an Apple Keyboard, it does not always work. And, sometimes, that key no longer sends it's request to the Mac... SO,
Have you tried another keyboard ?
Is there a Disk in the reader? Sometimes the disk itself confuses the reader and paralyses it and restarting won't help it even freezes the system....
That is why there is another way to get the CD drive to open or eject a disk that won't come out:
Restart your mac or from an off position, turn on the Mac and VERY QUICKLY press the mouse button ( If you have a mighty mouse, be sure to click the left side of the mouse ) and hold that mouse button down until the disk ejects, depending on how much ram you have, it could take 10 seconds to 70 seconds, be patient...
If the Mac boots without ejecting the disk, then either your mouse or keyboard are not connected directly to the mac, this does not work well through a USB Hub, or the mouse or Keyboard are defective.
Keep trying it with other keyboards or mice until you get that drawer opened.

My CD rom is not opening from keyboard when i press the key of eject and closing and i i have hp a6220.me


Eject is a extra key and not a part of standard keyboard layout. There should be a software provided for the keyboard which should be installed to enable the eject key. If you already done so, try uninstalling the same and reinstall

Rate the solution as Fixya !

Tnx,

Sony DVD RW DRU-820A


Hi,
did you try to do the emergency eject ?
jewellers driver in drive pinhole.
use the eject method again, Computer powered Off. Open the drawer and push it back in firmly.
This is an eject button, make/break switch problem.
Also try ejecting the drive from my computer/Right click with mouse ( CD Drive ) Eject.
And ensure the 4 Pin Molex ( Red-Black-Black-Yellow ) is the right way round. Yellow usually faces to the outside of the casing.

Sony DVD RW DRU-820A


HI,
Double check the Ribbon Cable Connector is installed Correctly ( 40-80 Strand IDE ) sometimes if these are not fitted squarely Or pushed in hard enough. Can cause a Problem.
Also try the emergency eject procedure on The Drive. Small jewellers screwdriver Or Needle, insert into the drives faceplate ( pinhole in drives faceplate drawer ) push to open dvd drawer. pull out drawer Gently. And push back in. This ocassionally works for a stcking Drawer/eject mechanism.
Finally try the drive without a disk in ( open/eject Or Close )
