    Have you tried to push the end of a straightened out paper clip into the small hole on the plastic face of the drive/?

  • custmdesgn Aug 30, 2010

    Yes, I have. I had to remove the drive from the case and manually remove the cd. I then had to open the outer casing and readjust the tray on the slider mechanism.
    Thanks for you input though.

Hi if you have a very close look at the cd drive, you know the part that slides out well if you look just below this you will see a very small round hole, now if you get a long pin and push it in this hole it will open the tray for you, you need to push the pin in strait, you will feel the pin hit something hard and this is what you need to push you may need a big sowing needle to be strong enough to push the tray open you need to poke it in the hole then keep pushing until the tray slides out enough for you to get hold of and pull it open

once its open i wouldnt get using it again as it will keep doing the same thing and not opening you will need to get this drive replaced as its moving parts are on the way out

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

How do you get a stuck dvd out of the cd drive in a acer laptop?


Have you tried the tiny little hole very near the slot of your CD drive? A small straightened paperclip stuck into the hole and pressed in might push the drive open for you. Many people don't know that little hole is for that purpose.

There should be a little pin hole on the outside of the CD tray where you can insert a paper clip or something similar to manually eject the CD.
