CD Drive won't eject

This question is not answered

Dell laptop 1555 won't eject my DVD.  No manual eject, only can eject disk by going Start --- Computer --- CD Drive, then right click to get eject option.  Disk tries to eject but is clearly stuck.  No clear way to remove drive.  Anyone have to deal with this?  Suggestions?

  • Omg yes!!! This just happened to me. I was making a driver restore disc which is not working it keeps telling me to to eject the disk then put it back in and then it tells me there was an error. I don't know why it kept doing that but I got feed up and put it on a usb drive. But I was unable to get the disk out and had to use a safety pin. It kept saying that it was a disc driver error. This laptop is only 1 day old and its already giving me ***. But I still love my laptop!

  • I have the same problem with my XPS 1530. A DVD-R got stuck, and now all I get are nasty noises when I try to eject it. There's no manual bypass, and no documentation anywhere. Help!

  • Same problem here. Here's how I fixed mine: I took the sharp end of a small safety pin & poked it all the way in, moving it around however I could, and then I hit the eject button several times, and it popped open! Hope it works for you.
