I have Dell XPS M1330 Laptop.. When i insert a DVD it will eject back quickly.. It does recognize at all..


Is it a slot load?
this is a common manufacturing defect on slot loads. ask for replacement.
I had this problem on brand new macbook pro. there are thousands of other user with same problem.
solution= get it replaced before warranty expires.

I've a DELLXPS M1530. I'm trying to eject a CD, wont come out


I do believe that there is still a small hole by that slot, that you can insert a straightened paper Clip into, and keep pushing until you feel/hear a slight, click, keep pushing gently and the disk should soon appear. IF you cannot do that the DVD will be removable by taking out the fasteners underneath the laptop,, and sliding the DVD out. for repair of replacement.

My daughter put two cd in my dell xps m1530.any idea how to get them out


Hi,
Please try the following:
On your dvd drive there is a very small pinhole. Get a paperclip and try to push it through. This pinhole is used for emergencies where the dvd drive does not eject.
Other thing you can do, is to turn your laptop upside down and remove the dvd rom drive from your laptop. Then unscrew the dvd drive to get the cds out.

My dell xps m1530 will not and the eject will not function


The M1530 slot drive has no manual eject. If the drive is not ejecting the media, then a service call is required to replace the optical drive. (The old drive has to be removed from the chassis to get the media out of it)

Hopefully, the system is under warranty.

if not, information on removing the optical drive is here:

My xps dell notebook is not running my dvd i put it in, then the cursor (mouse) has a cd symbol and then goes away thats it i tried re runnign it but it does not work.


Check the dvd it may be scratched. If that is not the problem then try running a dvd cleaner in the drive to see if cleaning restores disc reading. Hope this helps.
