DVD Drive Problem

  Phoenix40 20:15 26 Jul 2010

Hello i wonder if someone can help me. I have a Packard Tower unit computer with Vista Wins. I have carelessly put a cd game into my DVD drive and am unable to get it out. It sounds as if its continously going around i have tried to eject it but it wont work. So i appreciate if anyone who has experienced this problem can get back to me soon. This is the first time this has happened to me thanks for any help soon.

Hello thank you for your reply. I finally somehow manage to get it open in the end. It just finally opened up sometime after i asked it to eject. But i will still take note of your video for future needs thanks.

First try Right click the drive and choose Eject. Next Restart PC and press eject button as its starting

Hello thank you for both of your replies but i had at the time of the problem tried both of those technics that were suggested. I tried the paperclip method but with these tower unit type computers i could only find one hole near the bottom where the lid opens out. I put the paperclip in but nothing happened. But like the last person suggested i had try to use the eject request in the drop down menu but seemed to have failed for awhile until while i was on the internet the door finally opened up suddenly.Its an old cd of a game i had not used in this computer , i realise some games do take a while to start up to install. But with this one nothing happened and i could hear it keep spinning in the drive, thats why i wanted to get it out and couldnt for a while. Well thanks for all your help anyway.
