    Open up a paper clip and stick it in the little hole in the drive to open it.

    There should be a small hole under or around the door. Insert a straightened paper clip to release the door.

    It may be broken or maybe a virus. My friend once got a virus that made his drive OPEN and CLOSE and it keep going.

    that's the manual way. Check to see if it still works by putting in a cd after you open it with a paper clip and see if the drive runs it. If not, that means you somehow uninstalled the drive which really sucks installing it agains is kinda complicated.

    My laptop drive didnt work a while back but it did after i restarted the computer so maybe you should try that.

    don't tell me tht you are trying to open it with a paper clip while your pc is turned on.
    haven't you read the manual?

    Well are you running the cd while you're doing it? Try shutting your computer off and doing it, it'll open the drive up and is very handy if you are switchign to a new computer and have the old unplugged with a CD still inside. It won't damage the CD or anything if you turn your computer off and do it.
