I believe you're looking in the wrong place. The disc drive in a laptop accepts the same size discs as a disc drive in a desktop. There is a small button you push on the disc drive and the drive slides out. On laptops the drive doesn't slide completely out like on desktops, it will pop out about an inch then you will need to pull it out the rest of the way to get the disc inserted.

Disc stuck in dvd drive


If you cannot eject a DVD or CD from the drive, you will find a small hole in the drive cover - Take a paper clip and straighten it, then poke the clip through the hole, then gently but firmly push, and the tray will open.

My disks are DVD-RW and want tp use them over gain and don't know how. Also when do I finalise then and what for


For RW discs, you need to reformat them to reuse them. For your laptop, you should see a format option if you right click on the DVD icon when you have the File Explorer open to Computer (My Computer). (This assumes that the computer has a DVD writer.)

Finalizing the disc enables the contents of the disc to be read on other DVD players. (This isn't always an issue. For example, a disc burned with WinXP should be readable for a computer with Windows 7 without finalizing. However, if the disc was burned by a DVD player, the contents will not be accessible on any other units without being finalized.)

If the disc has been finalized, you need to take another step before reformatting the RW disc. Put the disc in the unit that initially finalized it. Then look for an Unfinalize option. Then format the disc again. (I've never used this feature on my computer. It's easily accessed on my DVD recorder in the same section of the submenu as finalizing the disc.)

I hope this helps.

Dvd door won't open for Sanyo DVW 6000


If you are trying to eject a disc, look closely at the front bezel of the drive, there is a small hole near the eject button, push a paper clip into the hole (straightened paperclip) and the tray will be ejected.

If the DVD door is stuck and will not open through ejecting via the icon in My computer, or the eject button on the bezel will not work, you likely have a faulty drive that will need to be replaced

I can not ecject the disc


hi there,

do the cd-driver have a tray or is it a slot where you push the cd in?

First off, Shut the computer down turn it on and then fo to the BIOS. (for most computers it's F2, for some it's Del or F10) to know how to do it on your computer when you turn it on and see the ACER logo check which button needs to be pressed so you can enter the SETUP.

Here's how you do it, From shutdown turn the computer on immediately start tapping the required button (F2, F10, Del etc.)

once in the Bios try pressing the eject button and see if the disc will come out.

If it doesn't:

For CD drives that has a tray: check if there's a small hole that you can punch a paper clip (that's the emergency eject button)

For Slot drives: Grab something that will fit in the slot and would allow you to pull the cd out.

Hope this helps!

My 13 year old son laptop need be reset like new


There are a couple possible solutions to your problem. If the computer will still turn on and load windows, and I assume you are using Windows XP, you can try doing a system restore. To do this, go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and select System Restore. If system restore is enabled, you should be able to choose a date in the past when the laptop was working properly and restore the computer to that date. If you want to completely reload windows, you will need a Windows XP installation disc. Load the disc in the CD or DVD player and reboot the computer. You should see a screen asking you to press any key to boot from CD, go ahead and press Enter. You will now enter setup where you can reformat the hard drive and reload windows XP. Follow the on-screen instructions to delete any old partitions, and then create a new partition and format it using NTFS. The windows XP installation will continue after the hard drive is formatted. If, when you reboot the computer with the installation disc in the drive, you are not prompted to boot from CD, you may need to reboot and press F2 or F12 to change the boot selection to the CD or DVD drive so it will load the CD first before it tries to load your original Windows installation.
