Dvd or cd are not open


I think you are saying that the CD/DVD drive drawer will not open?
Most drives have a tiny hole above the drawer. You need to straighten out a paper clip ,then poke it into the hole. This should release the drawer catch and you can open it by gently pulling. It may be jammed as a disk was not properly seated inside.
Check on My Computer that your computer recognises the CD/DVD player is there.

Player seems to have eaten the DVD. Will not release it so can be ejected


If it's a desktop, you can manually eject the disk. Turn off your computer and press a paper clip or other small object into the little hole on the front of the DVD drive. You need to apply a little force, but the tray should slide out far enough for you to remove the disk.

I recently acquired a used Dell Optiplex 320 desktop computer. When I lay the computer flat, the dvd drawer will open and function. When I stand the computer upright, the dvd drawer will not open. I am...


Sounds like there's something stuck inside the DVD drawer that blocks the drawer from opening if it's not its side. Try turning it over onto the other side, just for a minute, and see if it opens. If it does, there's something blocking the drawer. If it doesn't, you'll probably need a new drive, as that one's literally worn out...which I've only seen twice.

Hi My acer aspire 5739G dvd drive stopped working for some reason, it doesn't read any disks. The light on the drive blinks green a few times then nothing happens. I could hear the disk trying to...


Seems daft, but also ensure that the slide which the lense body sits on is fully returned to the start position. To do this, open the drive as normal and gently push the part of the drive which carries the lense back and forth to the centre of the drive shelf. Take care not to damage the lense when doing this.
I found that this solves the problem and the drive recognises the disc once its reset in this manual manner.

Remove the drive from your computer, and temporarily connect it to another desktop computer.
If it still does not work, then it's time to responsibly recycle it, and spend $40 to purchase a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

I just got this computer and the dvd mutli recorder drawer will not open when the button is pushed. the device driver thinks it is a Dell USB MASS Storage?


No doubt that it reading it as mass storage device. Its probably not getting power to the drive or its a DoA drive. send it back and get it replaced.

My dvd/vcr combo won't open any drawers on a magnavox combo, i press open and nothing opens, nothing seems to work except the lights


You need to change the drive belt. Attempt only if you know how to replace electronic parts. Open top cover and see drive bay to locate any belt that opens the door. Replace it with a new one. Also apply a little grease to the drive's edges.

CD Rom drawers do not open or close, drive belts have popped out


Unfortunatly, these belts are not availible for consumer purchase and, most service centers will just replace the entire device. i have used regular rubber bands that are identical in size to run many rom drives. this method seems to work just fine.

Its very unfortunate when these original belts break and, there is no replacment belt on the market. the only option is to purchae a store bought rubber band that matches the same size as the broken original band. this will work.
