If the door on your CD/DVD drive will not open when you push the eject button (on the front of the drive), Click on Start, My Computer, and Right Click on your CD/DVD drive. Then Click on Eject. If the door still refuses to open, you can insert a paper clip into the small hole on the faceplate of the drive and push it in until the door opens. If the door continues to refuse to open in the normal manner, you will have to replace the drive,

    didnt work. Where is this "pin hole" you're talking about? I searched the whole faceplate and there are no pin holes.

I'm trying to install a PC-DVD Game to my LG CD-ROM CRD-8521B, It plays CD's but wont play DVD's of any sort. Really need help...


The CD rom is limited to CD's. In order to read a DVD, you will need to install a DVD rom. My suggestion is to get an external DVD Burner - i just bought a Samsung slim external DVD burner that reads / writes CD's and DVD's.
You will have no luck ever reading a dvd in a cd rom.

My cd rom drive on my emachines wont burn any audio cds but it plays audio cds. when i go to burn a cd it says connect a burner. but my burner is built in to the drive that plays the cds


Could be a missing driver file. Or the plug between the 2 could be undone internally. Or the "Properties" settings could be unchecked.

I had this same problem w/ mine. Took me 4 months to figure it out. Got it working again but couldnt play audio cds, only dvds.

Go under control panel to hardware & find out exactly the name of the maker of the drive. It should be in there.
Search that maker ie ~ Philips CD Rom with Sonic DLA burning software.

I got pretty lucky finding info specifically for EMachine. It's a generic computer so shouldnt have any problem finding info about the drive & the software. Perhaps even look for Updates. This could help also.

Reads all but DVD-Help PLEASE


When you say it won?t read are you trying to play commercial DVD movies or read DVD data disks? If you're trying to play movies then you need a couple of things the first being some type of player program. Real player works as does Windows media player but usually DVD drives come with a striped down version of PowerDVD or WinDVD. If you in fact have a player installed and when a DVD is inserted in your drive it doesn't play it may not be configured to automatically play DVDs. Try opening your player program and trying to manually play your DVD. Let us know if you have any success or if you need more assisted. If you do let us know what player program and operating system you have and any error messages that may appear.
