Normally there will be a small raised area or a tiny button which you just press and release. It may be located right next to the door or may even be on the door itself. You may have to press quite firmly but do not keep it pressed. The drawer should then slide out. Very much the same as on a DVD player attatched to a TV.

Eject CD FROM EMACHINES


The CD drive has a pinhole on the door/drawer. It should be located close to the button you press to open the drive. Straighten a paper clip and insert it in the pinhole, pressing gently. The drive should open, releasing the CD.

I am being told to stick a paper clip in the hole in front of the tray but there is no hole. I can't find the hole. Where else can I stick soomething in?


Generally there is a small hole under the tray. (The tray is where the disk sits in)

You may have a eMachines desktop computer, where there is an outer door which flips down, and the tray slides out.
Ease the outer door down, and see if the optical drive unit (CD/DVD drive) has a small hole under the tray.

If not then unplug the computer from power, observe Anti-Static Precautions, and open the computer case. Remove the Front Panel. (Plastic front of computer. Now remove the optical drive, and open it up.

I need the Model Number of your eMachines to be more detailed.
Post in a Comment.

I emachine dvd rom/burner won't open how can i open it? but before it really do not play any dvd and then now it wont open.


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,

Emachine-new-disc door used 3 times, now it will not open. Help.


Open "My Computer".
Point at the icon for the CD-drive.
Click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button on that icon.
Choose "eject", to open the door.

If that does not work, then exercise the WARRANTY on your NEW computer to get the problem fixed, at no cost to you.

Disc slot


If you are speaking of a 3.5 floppy, you won't find one on the newer systems. 3.5 Floppys are out of date and are rarely put into new sytems. If you have data that you would like to retrieve from some old floppy disks, you will need to go to a computer store ie: Bestbuy or CompUSA and get an external USB Floppy drive. Then you can save them to your hard drive and then burn them to a CD or DVD.

Hope this helps you.

Emachine hard drive door will not open (how to repair?)


Assuming this means the CD drive rather than the Hard Drive (which doesn't normally have a link to the outside world).......

Unless something from outside is very obviously fouling the door, the problem is probably internal to the drive. With the price of replacement drives these days (shockingly low), I wouldn't even bother opening the drive to investigate what's wrong - I'd just put a new (probably higher spec) one in.

They're all a standard size and fitting and fitting a replacement is a "no surprises" job.

Emachines w3507 DVD Rom Broken


There may be a hole but it will be under the lip of the door, kind of impossible to get to. You may have to remove the drive from the emachine and unscrew it and open it manually with a small screwdriver. I regularly buy and repair or use parts from used samsung drives which is what emachines uses almost exclusively. The only upside to this is that once open, you can swap the faceplates and doors onto newer drives. If the led light is not in the middle then you can swap out the little plug in circuit too.
