Removing game from a broken ps 3


Unfortunately, you cannot make the BR-ROM eject the game automatically, and as slot-loaded trays do not support manual ejecting, you must do it the truly manual way. You need to disassemble the console enough to access the BR-ROM drive and then you need to disassemble the BR-ROM drive itself in order to remove the game disk from it. It's not easy, and can cause damage to the disk if you do it incorrectly as well, so you may want to consider taking it to a technician first before trying to follow a Youtube video on how to take it apart yourself.

Disk will not eject


Unplug the drive. insert a paperclip in the hole in the back of the drive. This will manually eject the disk. You can also open the cover but that's a lot more work than you need to go through when a simple paperclip will move the manual eject lever.

I had the same issue, the only thing I was able to do if the eject method didn't work was disassembling the disc drive.

I can't open my disc drive on my Acer Aspire 5820T without using a pin. How do I get the eject button to work?


I suggest that you can use the other method to eject: press start and go to my computer, select the disk drive and you should see an eject option in the menu bar.Remember that disk drives are subject to computer admin and do not respond quickly to a button press, especially if a disk process in taking place...

Disk won't eject


Ok, please try the following. Turn your PS3 off at the back so no lights on at all. While holding the eject button turn your PS3 on. It should now force eject the disc. Dont worry if your fan starts spinning super fast, this is normal when you do this.

You will need to turn your PS3 off at the back again as usually the front button becomes unresponsive after this method.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

I need to remove a disk from a Sony NEC Optiarc AD-7640S


CD Stuck in Device
First try the normal methods to remove the disc. Drag its icon to the Trash can in the Dock or select 'Eject' from the File menu. If you are running a virtual machine, e.g. VMFusion, ensure that the CD is disconnected from the virtual machine. This will sometimes allow the CD to now show up in Mac OS X. Shut down the computer and start up whilst holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared. If you have Toast Titanium installed on your computer, choose EJECT DISC from the menubar. Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder Open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button. Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism. Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray. Restart the computer while holding down Command-Option-O-F, to enter the Open Firmware prompt. Type "eject cd" without the quotes, and press return. The disk ought to eject. To start into OS X, type "mac-boot" without the quotes. Press return, and the computer will continue with the startup. (This will not work on an Intel Mac. There is no Open Firmware on Intel Macs. ) If your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button.

I put a mini disk in my macbook not knowing it would not load - now it will not eject


Be persistant-shake the F&^% out of it. Face it with the disk slot facing down and just shake it a few times. Worked for me.

Tray to insert games is not working properly what should I do?


if the tray is sticking and does not come out properly, there is a manual eject button on the drive hidden by the removable faceplate. unclip that and you can see it just below the drive tray. push a small object gently into it and it should come out. always try and keep a disk in the drive as it is much harder to eject when there is no disk in the drive.

CD won't eject. I've restarted and tried all the fixes recommended by MAC forums and so far no luck. Any other ideas?


If it is just the computer that isn't ejecting the disk (and not a physically "stuck" DVD) there is a way to force eject.

Go to Apple menu > Restart and hold down your mouse button until the disk ejects.

Or you can try the firmware method...

If all other methods fail, you can try to eject the disk using the firmware (this may not work on all computers). To use this method, start up and briefly use the computer with only the firmware loaded, not the standard Mac OS X interface.

To eject a disc using firmware:
Restart the computer.
When you hear the startup sound, press and hold the Command-Option-O-F keys. (The Command key has an Apple on it.)
Release the keys when you see a white welcome screen.
At the prompt, type:
eject cd

Press Return, then wait a few seconds. The disc drive should eject the disc, and "ok" appears on the screen when the action is complete.
Type:
mac-boot

Press Return.

Your computer starts up normally and you see the familiar Mac OS X desktop.
