Unable To Eject DVD From DVD-ROM Drive With The Eject
The DVD-ROM drive will not open to release the DVD when the button is pushed on the drive. RESOLUTION:
  1. Shut down the program that you are installing or running that uses the DVD-ROM drive.
  2. Wait 10 to 15 seconds, and then open the DVD-ROM drive by pushing the eject button on the DVD-ROM drive.
  3. If the DVD-ROM drive door still does not open, do the following:
    • Insert a paper clip or small pointed object into the small hole near the button on the DVD-ROM door.
      Gently push in the paper clip until the DVD-ROM door opens.
    • Remove the CD from the drive.
To prevent the DVD-ROM drive from exhibiting this behavior again, follow these steps:
  1. From the Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
  2. In Control Panel, double-click the System icon.
  3. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Device Manager tab.
  4. On the Device Manager tab, double-click the CD-ROM category.
  5. Double-click Toshiba DVD-ROM.
  6. In the Toshiba DVD-ROM Properties dialog box, click the Settings tab.
  7. On the Settings tab, clear the Auto insertion notification check box, and then click OK.
  8. Click Close.

I have a cd I put in, but do not know how to remove it from my computer need help


1. Open the Computer window on your PC: Either double-click the Computer icon on the desktop, or open the Start menu and choose Computer.

2. Click the DVD drive icon: Clicking the icon selects that drive.

3. Right click on it and choose 'Eject' from the drop-down list.

OR
Try the following only if the above steps didn't work or in times of urgency, such as when the computer is locked up (or turned off), you can manually eject a disc/cd by pushing a straightened paper clip into the tiny hole (the "beauty mark") on the front of the DVD drive.

I have a Dell desktop computer and I am trying to open my CD-ROM drive and nothing happens. I am assuming it is stuck and I would have to pry it out. I have been told to do this by taking a paperclip and...


Hello, From the problem you have stated,Since there is no pin hole that triggers the emergency latch, i would like to know if this problem just started occuring,if so, then i would advice you to change your power pack, because if the power pack is weak, it will not be able to supply the necessary voltage required to open the CD_ROM, better still if you can open your desktop and change the position of the power cord supplying the hard disc and CD ROM, that might allow you have access to the CD drive,but if this does not work,please take it to a technician to help you with it. Regards

My CD & DVD ROM drives will not open the door so I can insert a disk. The disk that is in the CD ROM that I can't get back out will play but the DVD ROM will not play anything at all.


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Your DVD rom tray may be stuck inside. Try the emergency eject by inserting a paper clip in the small hole at the front.

Unable to open DVD drawer


If you take a paper clip and straighten it, there is a little hole in the front of the CD drive, push the paper clip into it and your CD drive will get pushed open. This will get a CD out, but will not fix it.

Try re-seating, or connecting a different power cable to the back of the CD drive. Does your PC even recognize that the CD drive is present?

Most of the time the CD drive needs to be replaced.... they are very cheap.

There should be a very small hole on the front of the dvd plate. Push a small paper clip straight in. This should release the drive.

Dvd drive wont open


Its a common problem. There is a very tiny hole on the dvd-rom, try to find it.
Then get something that would get into that hole, and push that something into the hole and apply pressure, it should open.
Also slamming the dvd-drive after clicking the open button would work, I do that myself, but it would totally break after time, so just use the hole thingy :)

cheers.
