How do I eject DVD from studio laptop.

  • I had this happen on my Dell Studio with slot-type drive. Pressing the Eject key next to the function keys didn't work and the drive did not show up in My Computer. Eventually it ejected itself when I switched off, switched back on and repeatedly clicked on the above mentioned eject key whilst the computer was booting.

How do you force eject a disc from a macbook pro?

Five ways to eject a stuck CD or DVD from the optical drive
Ejecting the stuck disc can usually be done in one of the following ways:
1. Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the left mouse button until the disc ejects.
2. Press the Eject button on your keyboard.
3. Click on the Eject button in the menubar.
4. Press COMMAND-E.
5. If none of the above work try this: Open the Terminal application in your Utilities folder. At the prompt enter or paste the following:
/usr/bin/drutil eject
If this fails then try this:
Boot the computer into Single-user Mode. At the prompt enter the same command as used above. To restart the computer enter "reboot" at the prompt without quotes.

Dvd disc

Hi There,
Try holding down the 'mouse' bar (i.e., The clicker below the track pad, or the track-pad itself if you don't have the 'bar') when you are starting up the laptop. This will usually eject disks in the optical drive.
If that doesn't work, and dragging the disk icon to the trash doesn't eject the disk, then you probably have an issue with the drive itself.
Take a look at ifixit.com for guides on removing the optical drive and opening the drive to get the disk out.
Hope this helps & good luck!

I can't open my disc drive on my Acer Aspire 5820T without using a pin. How do I get the eject button to work?

I suggest that you can use the other method to eject: press start and go to my computer, select the disk drive and you should see an eject option in the menu bar.Remember that disk drives are subject to computer admin and do not respond quickly to a button press, especially if a disk process in taking place...

My hp laptop keeps ejecting disc itself when i insert any disc. Wat do i do pls

> keep ejecting

The disk-drive is having a mechanical problem, i.e., it is not fully-loading the disk,
or it is not detecting that the disk is fully-loaded. Therefore, it assumes that the open/close
mechanism is "jammed", and so it ejects, to indicate that the disk-loading was not completed.

Replace the disk-drive.

I'm having problems ejecting cd's from laptop after they're done burning.

Hi

If you go into the computer and open it look for the cd/dvd drive
highlight and right click it and go down to the properties
now click on recording up in the top right hand side of that box
then go down to and put a tick in the box where it says
Automatically eject the disc after a master burn then restart the laptop
this should then automatically eject after a burn

if it don't then

click on your computer icon
it should open it up and show you your hard drive/s
also the cd/dvd drives
if you highlight the cd/dvd drive then right click it and go down to eject hopefully this will eject it
also there is a small pin hole just beneath the push eject switch on the drive itself if you push something thin in there gently but firmly it should also eject the drive

hope this has helped you
please let us know if fixya has fixed it for ya

My PC won't allow me to right click to choose the eject option for a CD. I want to know if there is a way to remove the CD manually.

The DVD drive itself has a small horizontal 'eject' button that you can press to eject the disc.
If the button fails the disc is stuck however the DVD drive will have a small hole near the eject button- about 2mm in diameter. Straighten a paperclip or similar and push into the hole until the disc drive mechanism releases and opens.

Thanks,
Javaftper
