Cdrom drive can not eject / Cdrom is stuck


How To Eject CD from CD-ROM drive if it is Stuck :

If you have a CD into CD-ROM drive and it is stuck and you are trying to eject tray of CDROM by pressing the eject button or windows eject command but CD won't eject as there is no command to eject a stuck compact disc from the CDROM drive then this article is for you.

Step 1: Switch off the computer.

5573fa0.jpgStep 2. On the front of the CD-ROM drive you may find a small hole called Emergency Eject hole below the tray of CD-ROM drive . Take a long pin around 3 inch, (also known as CD ejector) it must be hard enough, insert this pin inside the hole and push a little. The CD tray will slightly move to out.

Step 3: Now you may manually pull the tray and you are done. You have successfully ejected the stucked CD.

Step 4: Switch on the computer and you may work as usual.

Thanks

I have a Emachine T5212 and im trying to reformat my hard drive but my internal dvd drive is not recognized.I brought an external dvd drive,but everytime i try to erase my hard drive it tries to load from...


First you need to have media ready to install once format is compelte.

You can not format a drive you are currently using an operating system unless you run the operating system setup disc in which case you would be booting and running from cd once you start reloading you main drive.

So if you are loading windows .
Review steps below if when you boot you do not have option to select boot device

Boot you laptop / pc and get into the BIOS
<normally f2 or f8 , f12 depending on system.>

Change the BOOT order to cdrom as primary \ you may see the device as USB CD/DVD rom with the actual name of brand there.

Save and exit

Have operating system in cd/dvd rom attached to device

Once it starts to load you will see BRIEFLY in the upper left corner PRESS ANY KEY TO LOAD FROM CD ROM or something similar... stop reading this and press a key ........


From there it should prompt you for setting up a new os, I prefer linux myself but in windows or linux in the setup process you have the option of just loading the operating systems or DELETING THE PARTITIONS and FORMATTING the drive, therefore wiping i .

NOTE: THIS IS NOT WIPING YOUR DATA, if you are trying to hide something, wipe from your drive past **** you never wanna share with anyone again..... repost under how do i wipe my hard drive clean .. its a completely different story .. not hard but different.

I transferred a recovery disc to my usb stick on my ibm computor for my laptop and now it wont load windows just the acer aspire screen comes up????


thats right when a computer starts up it only has a few places to look for a boot record like the hard drive or floppy nic or cd-rom. The reason this wont work for is because there are no usb drivers they load up after the OS is loaded. you need a cdrom sorry

please vote me 10 for this solution

The cdrom is surely bad, it is either you change it or you repair, the lense of the drive must have been damaged.

Dvd-cdrom plays music-cd.Not dvd-cd :No Valide Drive/Disc Found


Simply change the ROM to DVD RW drive since this is an old PC and now days nobody uses a dvd rom but a dvd writer. It will be worth it since it can do all the functions and is also more hardy........sodeep

Combo Drive LG : CD is not designed to run on Operating System


The 'autorun' sequence to run the disc might have been made for older operating systems. But that should not stop you from installing the driver for the 330 IDSL modem.

1. Go to start-> My computer. Locate your G: drive with the disc inside and right click on it. Choose explore and see if this allows you to view the contents of the disc. If there is a generic application labeled setup.exe execute it. If the application loads the driver for you then your in luck. If not then onto #2.

2. Your modem has been out for a while and has new drivers for it. You can always type in a search "SpeedTouch 330 IDSL modem" and download a more recent driver off the internet.

Before the BIOS can detect any piece of hardware the drivers must be loaded. The best place to get the most current drivers is the manufacturers website. If you received CD ROMs with your purchase there should be a driver disc there also. You could load that one first just get it started then go to the manuf website.
Another thing you can check is Device Manager. Device Manager will show all of your hardware. Find your CD ROM device in Device Manager, right click on it and update drivers. This should take are of your problems.
