Dvd drive door stuck


In case you're not able to eject the disc using the eject button, you can try right clicking on the CD/DVD drive under 'My Computer' and clicking on eject. If that fails as well, you can try to eject the disc manually by pushing a straightened paper clip or a pin into the tiny hole on front of the CD/DVD drive. You should be able to eject it using the last method.

Somethhing got stuck in the dvd/cd burner


Many computers have a small hole in the door to the dvd/cd drive. It is the perfect size to put a paperclip into. Straighten a paperclip and poke the end into the hole, this forces the door open. Hope this helps

My cd compartment won't open.


You can manually open the door using a straightened paper clip inserted into a small hole in the door. Press firmly and the door will be released. You may have a CD stuck in there, or you may need to reinstall the driver for the CD. Or the CD drive may have failed...at least the control part that opens and closes the door.

DVD Drive door will not always open. No obstructions. DVD Drive light flashes, but door will not open. Is ther some software conflict?


The door drive motor may be frozen.
  1. Shut down the computer and unplug it.
  2. Open the computer casing to access the DVD drive from inside.
  3. Disconnect the cable on the DVD drive leaving only the power supply connected to it.
  4. Turn on the computer.
  5. Push the OPEN/CLOSE button on the DVD drive. If it does not open, the drive is broken or the door drive motor is defective. If it opens, push the button repeatedly to open and close the door repeatedly to release any frozen part.
  6. If the door does not stuck anymore, shut down the computer.
  7. Reconnect the cable and turn on the computer.

Installed a new dvd burner for Hp computer. Running Windows XP. Installed Nero 8 Software. Door doesn't always open when button is pushed or after burning a dvd. Computer also has another cd/dvd drive....


it has to do with a new hardware installation process....check IDE cable that they are correctly connected and try to check system setup so that the CMOS identifies both, primary & secondary devices....if not, u need to install a driver for the newly installed one....

I have a Dell Dimension 4550 running windows XP Home. I just recently purchased a new DVD drive(Sony Optiarc AD-7221A) and I can't get it to work. The first drive I tried was a Lite-on DVD burner, and now...


sounds like you have issues with your hard drive.  go to start>run.
type this in without the " "
"cmd", hit ok.  a black screen pops up.  type "cd.." and hit enter.  type in "cd.." and hit enter again.  type "chkdsk c: /f /r".  It will say the drive can not be checked, it is in use.  hit "y" to schedule a check at boot up.  type"exit" and reboot your computer.  let me know if this helps.
