The other way is to start up with the mouse button pressed and it will eject it.

If this is a slot loading machine there may be a little hole next to the CD-Rom drive. Slide a paper clip into the hole and the CD should pop right out. If this is not a slot loading machine then it will be the same procedure only the hole for the CD-Rom will be on the CD-Rom tray itself

CD stuck in Asus desktop optical drive


On the CDrom drive, there is a small hole near the button to open the drive. Insert the tip of a straightened paper clip into the hole and press gently. The drive should open to allow you to remove the disk that is stuck.

Cdrom drive can not eject / Cdrom is stuck


How To Eject CD from CD-ROM drive if it is Stuck :

If you have a CD into CD-ROM drive and it is stuck and you are trying to eject tray of CDROM by pressing the eject button or windows eject command but CD won't eject as there is no command to eject a stuck compact disc from the CDROM drive then this article is for you.

Step 1: Switch off the computer.

5573fa0.jpgStep 2. On the front of the CD-ROM drive you may find a small hole called Emergency Eject hole below the tray of CD-ROM drive . Take a long pin around 3 inch, (also known as CD ejector) it must be hard enough, insert this pin inside the hole and push a little. The CD tray will slightly move to out.

Step 3: Now you may manually pull the tray and you are done. You have successfully ejected the stucked CD.

Step 4: Switch on the computer and you may work as usual.

Thanks

Emachine cd tray stuck closed


Hi beverlylu328,


It seems like your cd tray has already a defective mechanism.
If a cd was stuck in your cdrom, use the safety eject pin included in the cdrom package.
You can use this even your PC is turned off.
I strongly suggest to replace your cdrom with new one.

Hope this helps you a lot.

Thank you for using FixYa!

Hi..my compaq CD drive is not working The CD drive is not seen in my compuer


hello

shut down the computer completely and disconnect power cable connection. make sure all cables to the CDROM are connected properly. If they are , remove the cables.
Remove the CDROM, clean it from any dust or debris with air compressor inside bay area and around the connection circuits. Replace the CDROM back into tray and start up computer. If problem persists. go to www.hp.com , retrieve CDROM part number and get a quote for replacement CDROM drive. The one you have obviously does not work at all.

When powering up, the CDROM light just blinks every second


Troubleshoot the problem this way. If the clicking noise comes from the CDROM then disconnect the power and ribbon cable from the rear of the CDROM and attempt to boot your PC again. If you think there is a CDROM stuck in the drive (and due to settings that let CDs such as Windows install disks boot from the CD ROM), You can get the CD out with the PC off by getting a large paperclip, and after straigtrning out the wire, you will see a small hole in the front of the CDROM drive usually below the tray that comes out for you to put the CD in. Push the paperclip in firmly, and the tray will pop out, letting you get your CD out. Retry booting after the CD has been removed.

Blueberry iMac with slot-loading CD rom drive will


It would be very difficult to open up the imac to retrieve the disc as the CD drive is totally enclosed and would probably result in it not be functional after removing the disk. Have a look at the following article on the apple website
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3007?viewlocale=en_US as it does indicate that the slot loading imac does have a hole for paperclip ejection. You could also try opening up disk utility and and clicking on the icon of your disk under the left hand column then go up to eject button and click eject. Hope this helps.

My pc cdrom/dvd drive failed to read my recovery cd


Are you attempting to boot from a bootable disc? A failed drive can cause the other on the bus not to work. Try each one separate set as master or cs (cable select).

best thing to do is disconnect floppy, take all other board/pc card out of the computer remove cdrom, now you just have a hard drive
turn it on see where it goes. if it doesnt work try a different hard drive or just the cdrom but make sure you have boot from cdrom on in your bios.
