Have you tried the obvious 'open my computer and right click on the CD drive and select EJECT'?

If you remove the CD Drive from the computer, you should be able to get it to eject relatively easily. I am surprised to hear that there isn't a pinhole to release the mechanism. I'd double-check that, really.. I have *never* seen a CD drive without one.. and I have been around since CD Roms were introduced....

My best guess is that there is a small belt that has broken, and is causing an issue for the door not opening, and there may be little you can do but force it open and replace the drive. If not, you should still be able to force the drive open (again, removed from the machine) without damaging your CD.

Ejecting cd dell studio 17


Supposing that the Studio 15 / 17 has a slot loading drive:

You can either press the eject button above the keyboard (the touch sensitive one)

or

Go to 'Computer' in Vista and right click the CD/DVD drive. Then click 'Eject'.

This should work.

Cd stuck in drive


if the drive doesn't have a tray, try holding down the eject button. I think you would have to take the drive out from the laptop and possibly take the drive apart to get it unstuck.

Note that it may void your warranty if you have warranty on it, if you do have warranty on the computer it would be better to contact dell directly. They might replace the drive if its faulty.

also in windows you can try right click on the cd /dvd drive in my computer and select eject.
