You need to format the disk in drive G before using it. Then when I click ok it says cannot be formatted.


Hello,
the internal floppy drive is ALWAYS drive A: ...so be very careful you're not trying to format something (drive G:?) you shouldn't be. Perhaps your drive G: is a dvd or cd drive...or more likely a usb drive. Formatting the wrong drive is a bit catastrophic in terms of data loss.
Hope this helps.

Disc tray will not open e-machine T5224


This is not uncommon with older CD/DVD drives.

There should be a very small hole on the front of the drive that can be used to manually eject the disk.

Straighten out a paper clip and insert it in the hole. It may take a little fiddling but you should be able to get your disk out.

Unfortunately, this indicates that you drive is failing so you should replace it soon.

I hope this helps.

    Dell Dimension 8400 Bottom DVD Drive will not open


    Well in most PC related optical drives, there is a very small opening on the front of the drive, who gives access to the opening mecanism. You can use one end of a small paperclip to reach it. (In case you have a CD in there you want) Now about it working the usual way, there isnt much your can do, maybe somthing related to it's power, but again, if somthing is broken... unless it's still in waranty Good luck!

    HI,
    Double check the Ribbon Cable Connector is installed Correctly ( 40-80 Strand IDE ) sometimes if these are not fitted squarely Or pushed in hard enough. Can cause a Problem.
    Also try the emergency eject procedure on The Drive. Small jewellers screwdriver Or Needle, insert into the drives faceplate ( pinhole in drives faceplate drawer ) push to open dvd drawer. pull out drawer Gently. And push back in. This ocassionally works for a stcking Drawer/eject mechanism.
    Finally try the drive without a disk in ( open/eject Or Close )
