Question about Computers & Internet
Brand new - wanted to play song on disk, inserted, it slid off and is stuck inside my notebook. Disk tray is in open position.Ican hear the tray hit against the disk. Shook it gently upside down but nothing came out.
I'm assuming you have tried a different dvd also and no joy, but it may need a lens clean or it is unable to read dvd anymore as the tracks are closer together than a cd and the alignment of the laser is faulty. Notebook roms are replaceable but only mainly from your notebook manufacturer. You could also use an external dvd writer via usb, although this then doesn't make your notebook as portable, if you need to read a dvd disc.

SOURCE: my laptop ate my disk
The CD drive is secured by a small small screw which is located on the under side of the laptop, it normally has a small picture od a cd next to it, if you remove the screw you can slide out the CD drive.
once you have remover the CD drive you can undo the small screws on either side of the CD drive and open the drive and remove the cd, reverse the steps to put it back in the laptop.
However please take care and be gentle
hope this helps
