Your Battery is probably dead and can't hold any more charge as for the disc, its probably only made for the desktop computer

Cannot eject dvd

Good day,

If it's a dvd rom drive of a PC(personal computer), then get a long, strong thin material like a pin, at least of the length of your index finger. Around/beside the eject button on d dvd rom, you will see a small hole, like d size of a dvd rom led light, insert the thin material thru this hole until you "feel like you are pushing something inside the dvd rom". The dvd rom should open a bit, then you can open it completely to get your dvd.

I hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa!!

Hello there is no problem with the driver of your CD rom the problem is in your CD rom. Try to clean your cd rom with a piece of clean cotton. Gentle rub the cotton on the lens of your CD rom, then try to insert a cd if the problem is still there clean it again and again. If does not get by cleaning it is good to be checked by a electronic technician because maybe the lens have a problem or may need an adjustment to the lens of your CD ROm.

My dvd cd rom cannot read anything at all

Hi s_francis_sb ,

Please follow the below steps :-
  1. Get a lens cleaner from the market and insert it in your DVD ROM driver , this would help remove the dust particles on the lens which could be a reason for the DVDs not being read.
  2. Remove the lens cleaner from the tray and then insert a clean cd free of any dust in the DVD drive , if this works , then you have your problem resolved.
  3. If the above procedure does not work , then you need to get the lens replaced so that you have a working lens which can read your DVDs perfectly.
  4. If you feel that a new lens would cost you much as compared to a new DVD rom , since they are available cheap these days, you can go for a new one...:)
Hope this helps...:)

A dvd was inserted into my toshiba qosmio right before it broke, and is due back to video store, is there a manual way to remove it?

The dvd drives usually have a small hole on the front. Carefully push the end of a paper clip into the hole and the platter should eject.

Dvd rom not reading cds/dvds

I had similar problem on a Toshiba Satellite A30 laptop, I simply had to reconnect DVD drive. It usually loosing it's connection with motherboard and drive is visible in My Computer but it doesn't recognize any discs. If reconnection does not solve your issue you may try to update your DVD firmware and if it won't help replace DVD drive. Good Luck!

Cd/dvd rom not reading

It's likely a laser alignment problem inwhich you will need to replace the hardware. However, I had a similar problem once with a notebook and found out that a tiny bread crumb was near the spindal making the cd in the drive off balance. Check liberally for any debris. Good luck!
