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 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.

Cannot open compact disccompartment


If you are trying to open it with the eject button and it does not work, you may have a faulty drive. To manually open the DVD compartment, take a paper clip, straighten it, then push it in the little whole next to the eject button, it should pop out the DVD compartment.

Inserted a DVD wrong way around (silver side facing towards us) now we can not ejecetd or play it.


Here are some options from best to worst and I recommend that you turn off the computer beforehand

Use a straightened paperclip and insert an end into the auto eject hole. (A little pinhole on the front of most disk drives)
Use a knife or flathead to pry the disk tray open.
If it doesn't have a tray you could use tweezers to pinch it out of there

I have pryed open disk trays before without issue

CD tray not opeing


Perhaps it didn't fully latch so the CD drive doesn't think it's closed? Try opening and closing the door manually by straightening out a paperclip, then inserting it into the little hole in the front of the CD door. That should open it. Once open, close it and see if it will now open when you press the Open/Close button.

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.
