Question about Computers & Internet
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.
