Hello, i have just started to have a problem with my disc drive in that it wont open when i press the eject button.

Also when i go into My Computer and look at D: it says SS20AE (D:)this is with a disc in or without.

And finally when i double click the D: i get the (open with) dialog box as if to say i am trying to open a file that has no program asociated with it ???

Can anyone help me fix this ?

Thanks, Craig.

right click my computer icon, then properties, hardware, device manager, expand dvd/cddrives, right click the drive in question, properties for info and troubleshooting.

it may have come off the runners

you can open it with a paper clip if you push it into the hole

i can open it by right clicking and then eject. And i can open it now by pressing the button, but the other stuff is still happening. Thanks all.

Does this only do this with one particular disk or does it do it with all disks? I'm wondering if the disk is damaged, it may be not ejecting as it is still trying to read it, does the light stay on?
