On most cd drives somewhere below the tray is a small hole. Unfold a paper clip and stick it in there and press until the CD tray pops out. This dislodges it from the motor so it will not pop out all the way but it should be enough to get your CD/DVD out of the drive. Once that is done press the eject button to close the CD drive and "re-hook" it to the motor. If you are running an operating system other than windows such as Ubuntu, it will disable the CD drive eject button when in console mode, in which case you can just type eject to eject the CD drive.

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.

Alex

My MSI GT660 Dvd will not open or eject


There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

My pioneer dvdrw dvr 107d door wont open when i press button /have cd stuck inside (worked 5 mins ago) can still view dvd content/ will driver update fix ? please help


The drive may have come loose in your pc and is stopping the door to open.Hold open the front flap and press the eject button. If it wont eject your disk straighten out a paperclip and holding the front flap open look at the front of your drive and you will see a small hole.Push the paperclip through the hole and it will release the catch and eject your disk, You may have to push hard .Hope this helps you.

When i press eject button cd drive is not


Sounds like the belt inside is broken or came off. Does te drive still sound like it is opening but does nothing? Also try using a small paper clip and push it into the small hole on te front of the CD-ROM that will at least open the drive manually and possible fix the problem if the device is stuck.

Cd put in drive, is stuck and will not open. Have


Power down.  Now power back up and press the eject button at the top of the keyboard and hold until disc ejects.  If that don't work, then you gonna have to open this thing up and physically take the disc out cause something is blocking it from ejecting.

Well we have a acer computer and the cd drive is stuck


If pressing the eject button does not eject the tray, look for the small pin hole on the cd drive and insert a paper clip to press that hole. It would manually eject your CD tray. Hope this helps.
