In case you're not able to eject the disc using the eject button, you can try right clicking on the CD/DVD drive under 'My Computer' and clicking on eject. If that fails as well, you can try to eject the disc manually by pushing a straightened paper clip or a pin into the tiny hole on front of the CD/DVD drive. You should be able to eject it using the last method.
Disassembling may be your only option, if the CD is Broken or jammed. Try rebooting and pushing the DVD rom button at boot. I had a DVD explode, I had to remove the drive and disassembling the DVD rom to remove all the pieces.
Hi, On the front of most CD or DVD drives there is a small pin hole that you can use to open the drive if it gets stuck. Grab yourself a strong paper clip, straighten one end, insert the straight bit into the hole and push firmly once you feel some resistance. This will partly open the drive tray to either allow you to remove a cd or insert a new cd or dvd. Question, Is there a light lit on the front of the drive when you are: a. trying to eject (instead of using the front button on the drive try using the "Right Click and then Eject" option when selecting the dvd drive in My Computer), If not the drive may be stuffed (broken) or perhaps the 4 pin power connection lead at the rear of the dvd drive has fallen out. b. is the drive tray sticky when opening or closing? (get a new drive...very easy and very cheap to buy and replace) Good luck, Steve (Melbourne,Australia)
look a tiny hole in the front of the CD/DVD drive use a paper clip to pull out the tray, when you have the tray out use the EJECT bottom in the drive to close and wait 3 seconds and press again to open, do this at least 3 times.
There should be a button on the DVD/CD drive itself, just push that small button and the tray should eject. If you can't fine the button double click on "Computer" or "My Computer" highlight the DVD/CD in the list, right click on the DVD/CD and select "eject" from the list. The tray should now eject.
On the eject tray of the cd/dvd drive you will see a small pinhole use a pin and insert into that, the cd drive would eject, ITS A MANUAL EMERGENCY EXIT BUTTON ON ALL CD/DVD DRIVES, INCASE THE CD DRIVE DOESNT EJECT normally as your case here
