Generally, it is an indication of a failure in the drive. Boot to the safe mode, see if it still pops open, if it does, replace the drive.

DVD disc stuck?Press Eject, door won't open. disc spins up loads, then flashes fail


Find a paper clip. Unbend the outside piece of wire so you have a 1 inch or so pice sticking out.

On the front of the DVD, look for a hole about the size of the paper clip. Stick the long piece you bent out into the hole and push slowly but firmly until the tray just barely pops out. Slowly pull the tray the rest of the way out and remove the disc.

I've seen this caused by putting a second dvd/cd on top of one already in the tray, actually fairly common when you cant see the dvd drive tray from the top.

Can't open the second cd rom drawer


Does the light flash when you press the button? If so, was there a disk in the drive previously? There is a small hole on the front of the unit. With power off, get a paper clip and open it up halfway. Push the open end into this hole and the drawer should pop open by about half an inch. This will be enough for you to gently pull the drive open and remove anything stuck inside. Ian.

My toshiba computer optical disk drive wont open but it keeps flashing i dont know what to do! help me please


Hi there.
There are a couple of ways to open the CD/DVD tray.
Firstly you can right click on the CD/DVD icon in my computer/computer and select eject from the sub menu, or if you look very close at the CD/DVD drive near the eject button for a very small hole, if you see one get a paperclip, straighten it out and push one end in the hole until the tray ejects.


Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

CD/DVD tray keeps ejecting when being loaded. Lights flash as if the system is going to read but than ejects before doing anything. HP HL DT ST DVDRRW GSA-H20L Thanks


criddi, it is best if you uninstall and reinstall or update the drivers of your CD/DVD drive, you may also need to place the drive on another IDE port from the inside of your computer.

hope this helps, if you have other questions please let me know

Dvd rom automatically eject & loading frequemtly


I'm afraid when a drive starts to eject the draw especially on boot up, it's a sure sign that the unit is faulty and needs replacing.
