This happened after a few windows updates. It worked fine one night, then the next day, it didn't.
I put a cd in the cd-rw drive, look at the files that are there (had to reinstall everything), then I try to take the disc out, and the drawer won't open.
I have tried to go to My Computer, E drive, right click on select eject, doesn't work.
I checked in Device manager, it says it's working properly. Went through the trouble shooting bit anyway. Lota help that was :thumbsup:
The only way I can get it to eject the disc is to reboot the computer.
Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Tim

You tried right-clicking on the drive in My Computer...and clicking on Eject?

Perhaps it's time for a replacement drive.

In an emergency to open the tray there is a small hole either above or below the disk drive. Use a paper clip to press and the tray will open. That does not solve the problem to open automatically though

I did try the right click thing, no luck.
I looked all over and don't see any holes, except where the headphones plug in.
The bad part is my DVD drive won't even open at all.
And I just wiped the system clean and reinstalled XP Home about 4 days ago.
Maybe I'll just replace them both.
Thanks,
Tim
