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.

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.

Can't eject CD from CD rom


Disassembling may be your only option, if the CD is Broken or jammed. Try rebooting and pushing the DVD rom button at boot. I had a DVD explode, I had to remove the drive and disassembling the DVD rom to remove all the pieces.

Cd instil


if you are trying you to say there is a CD in CD-Rom drive and you can't get it out, then it is quite easy to remove the CD. There is a very small hole by the eject button on CD-ROM. You will need to put a very thin and strong tool and push it forward through the hole. This will eject CD.

My CD will not eject out of my Dell XPS One Desk


It is possible that a CD may have become stuck within the CD-ROM drive. If the CD-ROM drive has a small hole (that is not the head phone jack), using a paper clip, place the paper clip within the hole and attempt to manually eject the CD-ROM tray.

If the CD-ROM drive is only partially able to be opened, attempt to pull the tray gently to see if it can be manually ejected. If it cannot be opened any further, it is likely that the gears within the CD-ROM drive have become bad, dislodged, or that a CD is positioned in the drive, which does not allow it to open.

I have found that if a software program is locking the CD, power off the computer, power on and immediately try to eject the drawer when the first image comes on the screen. Try several times before the OS comes up.

How do i eject a stuck cd from gateway one 710 series I have tried the eject button on the keyboard but will not give it up...


Have you tried the eject button from the tray? If all that you need is a tool to eject the tray without touching the tower, I suggest you to go to this link and download the Eject-CD freeware runtime file EjectCD.exe - approx 30kB. Alternative if your tray is locked and can not open with the above methods, you have to locate a small hole in the front panel of the tray and put into that hole something like a connector (for papers) or a strong wire in order to push the internal system to open.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.
