Take a Norwegian paper-clip, and straighten one end.
Insert that end into the small hole in the face-plate of the drive.
Push until you feel resistance.
Then, push another 1/8 inch (3 mm),
and the drive-tray should "unlock",
and you can manually & gently open the tray,
and remove any disk.

Then, take your computer to a qualified technician,
to get them to disassemble your computer,
remove the malfunctioning disk-drive,
sell you a new drive,
install the new disk-drive,
reassemble your computer,
and test it.

The laptop burned a disc, then ejected as usual. Another disc was place in the tray, inserted as normal but this time a cd was unable to be burned because the laptop did not recognize the disc or any other...


The automatic ejection takes place when the burn process has completed successfully. Have your tried another writable CD or DVD? If your laptop is not recognizing any more writable CDs/DVDs, then the problem might be a failed CD/DVD drive. Otherwise, it is probably a bad CD or DVD.
Hope this helps.

Cd drive wont eject


Try ejecting it through "My Computer". Right click on the drive and select "eject". If you can't locate the drive, then it's probably missing the driver.

On my HP pavilion mx 75 my hp cd--writer will not open any easy fiX?


Hello

Well, if there is a cd stuck in the device, you might fix this problem by force ejecting the cd/DVD.

Here is how we do this:
Take a small pin, push it into the small hole near the eject button on the CD/DVD rom. While doinf this, gently pull out the trey.

If this was a stuck cd, just take it out, if there was no dc/dvd in the rom, it might be a faulty eject button. Test this by going to My Computer, right click on the CD/DVD rom andd choose to eject.

If this does not work, i would suggest thatyou buy a new drive, because it is often much cheaper than to repair.

Let me know if this work.

Kind regards
Andrea

I have hopefully just burned my first photo CD but am unable to get the disc out of the slot. I have pressed just the eject button but don't know what else to do - and yes I AM blonde!


Hi, LOL!!

Ok, if you can't eject the disk double right click on computer, where you see you CD/DVD drive right click on the icon and select eject from the list.
If it still won't eject get yourself a large paper clip and straighten it, look very closely at the eject button on the CD/DVD drive, you will see a very small hole. Push the straightened paper clip inside that hole and manually eject the disk.
Post back if you need anymore help.

Good luck.
