Dvd drive door stuck


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.

Can't eject CD from CD rom


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.

My dvd-writer/cd-writer combo will not open?


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.

Where do I find the eject key to eject a cd from my Dell studio laptop?


Hi,

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.




Regards.

Disc drive


Does it eject? If not then its a power problem. If the disc tray does eject and load then it can probably be a lens problem First try to clean the lens with a lens cleaner CD.

If it still doesn't work then its a problem with the lens assembly and it has to be replaced. Good Luck!
