If the driver door was knocked off track you can try re-aligning the door and putting it back on track by opening it up, if it is a desk top model. If it is a laptop model you will need to replace the drive. On rare occasions you can get it to re-align by closing the tray manually.

How do I get the disc drive of a dvd recorder to open after getting out the disc and resetting the machine?


Go back through the release process you did the first time to remove the stuck disk. it appears that part of the mechanism that moves the drive did not engage again.

My cd rom drive on my dell tower will not open, how do i fix it


usually, CD/DVD rom drives have small hole in front of them. use a pointy object that will fit in that hole and poke it until the CD tray comes out, then try to close it using the tray button. if that will not fix your problem, it's better to call Dell to replace it. having it fixed by a local computer store is more expensive than actually buying a replacement.

My disc is stuck in the system


There is no need to open up the console! Get someone to hold the PS3 upside down (so the disc slot is facing down) then get 2 butter knives insert them carefully one on the left and one on the right of the disc slot. Now gently push the knives away from eachother so that the one on left goes left and the one on the right goes right. You will feel them push the brackets that hold the disc in. As you push the brackets you will release the mechanism that holds the disc in and it should just drop out. I did this with mine when my little boy decided to put a credit like card in it!

My wii makes loud noises and when i turn the game on it says to eject disc turn off wii and look at the manuel. Sometimes the game will load but will shut off during and says disc can not be read. How can...


Sounds like something is stuck inside of your Wii's DVD Drive... someone may have stuck something in the slot? Coins? credit card? paper? Etc... sounds like this is preventing the disc from being read properly. Either this, or something inside of the drive has become broken.

The following website sells the DVD drive mechanisms and does repairs on the Wii as well:

Disc stuck in wii console


Your Wii will require Warranty service from Ninteno. However, if you send your unit chances are they won't return the disc.

How to open your wii – http://wiki-scene.com/Wii_disassembly
Once you get to – 'Remove 4 DVD drive screws' Dont do that, just take the 5 screw off the top of the Drive, and the drive will split into 2 and you can easily remove your disc. Reassemble and contact Nintendo for Warranty service.
