If you stll have this problem, then you might try a couple of things..

Firstly, a boot of the pc usually will allow the drive to be opened.. But I'm sure you have tried that.. So, there are a couple of other ways.. There is a small pin hole in the front of 'most' CD & DVD rom drives. This is used for emergency situations when the cd will not 'dismount'. Be careful here. Use a paper clip & insert it gently into the pin hole. Only use a light pressure & you should feel a small switch plate. Gently push it with the (extended) paper clip. It will switch the open button & should allow the drive to open. Thirdly, go to 'Start' (button), 'My Computer' highlight the CD rom drive (left mouse click) then right mouse select 'eject' from the menu options.. Actually, if you are still reading, do this first. If it fails, boot the pc & try it again, before using the paperclip method. good luck. Rgds,

How do i open a disk drive to a acer aspire e touch


well it sounds to me like you are just trying to open the drive to insert a disk ? go to "computer" or "my computer" on the desktop, double click to open. you should see your hard drive "c" and cd/dvd drive "d" listed. right click the "d" drive, left click eject, voila. if you have more than one hard drive or a partitioned drive there might well be more drive letters but your cd/dvd drive will be marked as such. alternatively click "start", bottom left of desktop, click "computer" and once again you should see your drives listed. physically there should be , on the cd/dvd drive drawer itself a small button, push it once to open. failing all else, there should be a very small hole in the drive drawer, using say a paper clip or similar, insert into the small hole and push reasonably firmly, this should release the drawer manually and the drive will open. hope that helps. good luck.

How do I insert a CD in my hp Pavilion g7-1365dx notebook PC


Once your computer has been powered up, you can push firmly on the button on the CD/DVD drive faceplate to get it to open. Lay your disk on the face of the drive making sure it is seated fully in the circle provided. Shut the drive door without pushing on the button.

If your drive does not have a door but instead is just a slot, you can push the disk into the drive firmly about half way. It will then be caught up by the computer and be pulled in the rest of the way automatically.

How to eject dvd disk samsung laptop no eject button?


There are two ways toopen the CD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drivetray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive traypops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CDdisc.
If you continue having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD driveis faulty and needs replacing.

Toshiba Satellite a135-s2386 won't bootup and CD/DVD drive won't open. The power button, plug button and battery button all come on. I tried taking out the RAM and switching the 2 RAM sticks. I also took...


I assume there is a specific reason that you mentioned the DVD drive won't open. Is it because there is a disk in it that you are trying to remove, and you can't because the laptop won't boot? You can open the DVD drive with a pin or paperclip. There is a little hole in the drive near the eject or open button. Insert a small pin or paperclip straight into that hole and push. It should pop open.

I have no ides how to reset the laptop as someone has taken everythin off the laptop the laptop is a acer 5315 really need some help cant even get the disk drive to open


Take a Norwegian paper-clip, and straighten one end.
Insert that end into the small hole in the faceplate of the CD-drive,
and push until you feel resistance.
Then, push another 1/4 inch (6 mm) to "unlock" the drawer.
Then, push the open/close button, and the motors should push the tray completely open.

Then, insert the original Acer "System Restore" CD, close the tray, and restart your computer. Tell it to boot from the CD.
When it does, it will start to reinstall Windows.

My toshiba computer optical disk drive wont open but it keeps flashing i dont know what to do! help me please


Hi there.
There are a couple of ways to open the CD/DVD tray.
Firstly you can right click on the CD/DVD icon in my computer/computer and select eject from the sub menu, or if you look very close at the CD/DVD drive near the eject button for a very small hole, if you see one get a paperclip, straighten it out and push one end in the hole until the tray ejects.


Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Compact Disk Drive isn't opening or recognizing disks


The drive may be dirty or jammed. Use an expanded paper clip. Insert the wire into the little hole on the front of the unit. That will engage a manual switch. Gently open the unit all the way. Now press the button and let it close by itself. If this doesn't work it may also be an electronic failure.

DVD/CD drawer does not open when button pushed - Averatec 3360


this is an issue with the tray release, built into portable disk drives. I would recommend replacement or repair by a good technician.

-this is not a software or firmware issue.
-this is an actual physical damage to the tray mechanism itself.

hope this helps you out.
