Question about E-Machines Computers & Internet
Are you trying to remove the entire drive? or just a CD from inside the drive?
most CD drives have a pin-sized hole just below the drive tray (where you insert the CD) which will cause the drive to eject the tray as long as it is powered.
removing the drive itsself is not overly difficult either.
--Simply power off your machine, unplug it from the wall and wait a few minutes for any residual capacitance to bleed off (general safety precaution).
--Then open the outer case (normally held on by thumb screws or hex screws, you may need a screwdriver to do this)
--once the case is open/off, locate the CD drive inside the machine. simply unplug any cables AT THE DRIVE (do not unplug any cables at the main board unless you really know what you're doing or have to because often there are multiple things plugged in there and you could cause a more serious problem by doing so.)
--after everything is unplugged from the drive, locate the mounting screws and remove them (sometimes they are clips, other times screws or hex bolts). this will allow you to remove the drive itsself from the case.
--once the drive is out, put the case back on the machine and plug everything back in and you'll be good to go minus one CD drive.
hope this solution helps you, and please do not forget to rate me.
