Couldn't eject DVD from the slot-in drive

I am using Lenovo 3000 y410 laptop that has the slot-in optical drive. I hv prob of ejecting the disc out from the drive. What shoud I do?

I remember my old laptop that has tray type optical drive, beside the eject button there is a small pin to eject the dvd.

Can anybody tell me how to solve the prob?

Many thanks..

    I kept press eject button until it was sucessfully (oh finally) ejected from the optical drive.



    Actually the slot-in optical drive cannot read disc that has another layer of paper/ sticker that is pasted on the disc. I tried with disc without any layer and it was fine.

From memory its a bugger of a mission ,
Easier to take to a Service Technican unless you are able to do this type of repair,
It will require a lot of paiteince and skill to strip down and reassemble this just to get to the disk.

Give it to the PROS only if you want it to work again,

Sorry but thats the truth,

Hope this helps ,Please rate me thanks

I have purchase lenovo Y410 but DVD drive not working since 8 days . Kindly suggest how to resovle this issue Thanks Dinesh


I would 'slap' Windows around, and make it reinstall the drivers for the DVD optical drive.

Vista:

[Note* All clicks are Left-click unless otherwise noted]

1) Click on Start (Windows logo button)

2) Click on Control Panel

3) Click on Device Manager

4) After Device Manager loads all the way, click on the + sign to the left of -
DVD/CD-ROM drives

5) Right-click on the name of the DVD optical drive

6) Click on Uninstall

Windows will come up with a 'squawk box',
"Warning you are about to uninstall this device"

It's okay, click on OK.

Now close all windows, and go back to the desktop screen.
Restart the computer.

When Windows has fully loaded you should get a pop-up out of the system tray,
"Found new hardware device", and perhaps another one will follow,
"Found XXXX optical drive"
(XXXX being the name of the optical drive)

If this doesn't work try cleaning the laser optical eye of the DVD optical drive.

Laptop on open the DVD optical drive tray.
Turn the laptop off.
Remove ALL power to the laptop.
(AC adapter {Charger} and Battery)
Use a can of compressed air for computers.

Or use a disk cleaning device for cleaning CD/DVD optical drives. (Power plugged into the laptop)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

DVD Drive errors are cause by the following::
1. The DVD Drive might not be connected properly to the motherboard.
2. The optical lens might need cleaning
3. The DVD driver might not be working properly or misconfigured
4. Might need to buy a replacement drive

Thanks. Cheers!

Unable to eject a cd inside the dvd rw drive. help me. i am using lenovo laptop 3000 Y410. tnx


Look on the front of the DVD-RW tray. There should be a tiny hole there. You will need a paperclip. Straighten out the paperclip, and put it in that hole. Be sure you hold it straight and parallel to the table you have your laptop sitting on. Push the paperclip into the hole. You will feel a little resistance, but the paperclip should advance forward. DO NOT force it if it won't go. The tray should manually eject itself, and you will be able to pull it out and take your CD.

You probably have some mechanical issues with the drive itself. Have it looked at before using another disc. If it still reads and write, then you can use the paperclip trick, but this is really only a short term solution.

Good luck.
