When the cd is stuck and won't eject try looking for a small pinhole on the front of the cd rom drive. This is the "manual eject" or release. Stick the end of a paper clip in there and it should release it.

I have a cd I put in, but do not know how to remove it from my computer need help


1. Open the Computer window on your PC: Either double-click the Computer icon on the desktop, or open the Start menu and choose Computer.

2. Click the DVD drive icon: Clicking the icon selects that drive.

3. Right click on it and choose 'Eject' from the drop-down list.

OR
Try the following only if the above steps didn't work or in times of urgency, such as when the computer is locked up (or turned off), you can manually eject a disc/cd by pushing a straightened paper clip into the tiny hole (the "beauty mark") on the front of the DVD drive.

Cd door is stuck


If you cannot open it with the button on the door, start the computer and click on the start button, select COMPUTER, it should show the drives that are on the computer, Right click on the cd drive and a menu comes up that has the option to EJECT. See if that works. If it does not, there is a small pin hole in the door slot that you can stick a paper clip in that you bent to fit in the hole. Press the paper clip into the slot till the drive door opens. If you have to do that then you should replace the drive.

My disc drive won't eject.


Hello,
If there is CD/DVD stuck inside:look for a small hole on the face of the drive and insert a paper clip, and press a bit, the drive will open.
If that does not do the trick, look for an icon on the systray (where the clock is shown) . It represents a square inside which there is disk.The tooltip (bubble) should read Optical Drive Power (on or off). If you click on it it shows a two item menu Power On Power Off with a tick mark near one of them. Click Power ON.

Hope it helps.

Cd drive stuck shut with disk in it how do i get it open now


use a paper clip fold it out and push it straight in carefully into the eject hole in the cd drive. It is a small hole on the cd drive usually close to the eject button. You will feel a release on the inside. When you push it you will hear it/feel it eject. Don't push real hard as you don't want to bend the paper clip and get it stuck in the hole
