Re: CD Drive not Ejecting properly
Since the warranty period has expired I will assume that the CD/RW has been in use for some time.
Normally a small belt powered by a motor drives a gear that slides the tray out. Sometimes this belt is loose, warped or plain cut. Replacing the belt should solve the problem. You have to open the CD and it is near the front just below the tray.
In other instances, the grease on the toothed railing at the sides and/or underneath the tray gets gummed up, cleaning and repacking with new light grease should take care of that.
Rarely (but still does happen), the motor itself burns up and replacement (if you can get the part) is in order.
An interim fix is to push a small straightened metal paperclip at a small hole below the tray cover/lip and slightly push till the tray partially opens. You can then manually pull it out.
Hope this be of some help/idea to you. Good luck and kind regards.

Hi, if you dont know how it remove or install it, then no need to experiment. But you can solve it . Just purchase a USB suppoted DVD RW and install throgh your USB port of your Notebook. THis is very simple and so easy.
Best of Luck!
Take a paperclip, find a small hole in the front of the drive, and push the paperclip into the hole. The CD drive should eject. If it does not, it is time first of all for a new one anyway, but you may have to disassemble the drive to grab the CD.
If the computer is still under warranty, contact Toshiba, and get it repaired.
If the warranty has expired, take the computer to a qualified technician, who will remove the dead unit, install a new drive, and reassemble the computer.
Cost will be about $60 for "one-hour-labour", plus the cost of the new drive.
When you say "not eject", I'm assuming you have tried ejecting from a physical button on the drive as well as selecting eject in Windows Explorer. If not, give it a try. If still a problem, note a small hole in the drive. Open a paper clip and gently place one end in the drive. The drive should open. Hope that helps.
You may have what is called a combo drive...it can play and burn cds but can only play dvds, not burn them. Look at the face plate on the drive and see what is written on it. If it has the following: Recordable Drive = CD Burner DVD = DVD Player RW & DVD = DVD Burner
If recordable drive and DVD is on the drive but no RW, chances are its a combo drive. Keep us posted.

This is due to the cracked disc is damage the sensor inside your cd-rw/dvd drive. If still under waranty, you can send it to warranty claim. If it's over warranty, then you have to replace with a new one.
Try rebooting your computer. I have a similar desktop and sometimes after a period of use the drive seems to power down - if I shut down and start up again it seems to work again.
If this doesn't solve the problem, check the connections inside the computer to make sure the drive has the data cable and power cable connected securely.
If you bought the Inspiron 3 days ago, contact Dell for warranty service and a replacement. If you just bought the drive itself 3 days ago, take it back or return it to the retailer you bought it from for a replacement.
