Acer Aspire z5610

I cannot eject the disc from the above computer. It is side loading and there is no hole on the eject button to use a pin to eject.

also right clicking on the drive in my computer does not eject the cd.

Can anyone help?

Possibly a power issue to the drive.

try removing and refitting the drive to remake the contacts, then see if the eject button works.

Some software programs can also lock the drive such as Nero or Roxio biurning programs and you will need to use the software eject button on these programs to open the drive.

I don't think it is a power issue as when you press the eject button there is a light flashing inside.

I have not used the cd burning software, so don't think this could be the issue?
