The drive may be in failure. I would try another drive to verify. I have had this before.

How do you eject a cd from an alienware 14


you should be able to see a very small pin hole on the cd rom itself.
Get a paper clip and unfold it, insert the longest end into the hole until it hits something and give it a push.
You can also go to the cd\dvd rom and right click- eject

I have a cd I put in, but do not know how to remove it from my computer need help


1. Open the Computer window on your PC: Either double-click the Computer icon on the desktop, or open the Start menu and choose Computer.

2. Click the DVD drive icon: Clicking the icon selects that drive.

3. Right click on it and choose 'Eject' from the drop-down list.

OR
Try the following only if the above steps didn't work or in times of urgency, such as when the computer is locked up (or turned off), you can manually eject a disc/cd by pushing a straightened paper clip into the tiny hole (the "beauty mark") on the front of the DVD drive.

Blueberry iMac with slot-loading CD rom drive will


It would be very difficult to open up the imac to retrieve the disc as the CD drive is totally enclosed and would probably result in it not be functional after removing the disk. Have a look at the following article on the apple website
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3007?viewlocale=en_US as it does indicate that the slot loading imac does have a hole for paperclip ejection. You could also try opening up disk utility and and clicking on the icon of your disk under the left hand column then go up to eject button and click eject. Hope this helps.

A dvd is stuck in the drive. It resists all attempts at removal including the ''eject cd'' command in Open Firmware. Can I manually remove it?


The iMac (Slot loading) computer's disc eject mechanism is electrical instead of mechanical. To eject a CD-ROM disc at startup that contains system software, press the mouse button until the computer ejects the disc. If the disc does not contain system software, wait for the iMac to start up and drag the disc icon to the Trash.

If either of these steps fails to eject the disc, push the drive's manual eject button with a small, blunt object like a paper clip. This button is located to the right of the CD/DVD slot as shown in Figure 1. The computer must be turned on to eject a disc in this manner.

Once the disc is ejected, it extends just beyond its center hole so you can remove it from the drive. If the disc fails to eject, while holding in the paper clip, use another CD to gently push against the inserted CD. This gentle pressure may help to release the inserted CD.

Important: After ejecting the disc with the manual eject button, you must restart the iMac in order for the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive to work.

Removal of cd/dvd rom


WHen the CD is inserted, you can rigtclick it in Windows Explorer, and select Eject. That way the CD will be ejected even if you cannot find the button.

New (to me) blueberry cd stuck in drive


If this is a slot loading machine there may be a little hole next to the CD-Rom drive. Slide a paper clip into the hole and the CD should pop right out. If this is not a slot loading machine then it will be the same procedure only the hole for the CD-Rom will be on the CD-Rom tray itself
