I have a Medion laptop with external dvd drive. The disk won't eject. This is one where the disk is normally ejected from within, i.e. there is no tray to emerge. Does anyone have any info as to opening such a drive to remove the disk? Thanks.
I have not come across a 'trayless' drive to investigate though I have seen them. 'Trayed' drives often have a pinhole either near the eject button or in the rear casing push a paper clip in and it release the retain mechanism and out the tray pops. How about yours - can you see such a release hole? Otherwise it means taking the casing off - fancy that?
Thanks both. Trouble is, none of the eject dodges work, it may be a mechanical fault. I know about the paper clip method but mine doesn't have any access hole or eject tray. I am looking for some ideas about opening the case up. There are 2 small cross head screws on the underside, I am wondering whether if I remove these I should be able to slide the "innards" out. Does anyone have any experience?
