Hi EvelieMae!

You can manually open it by pushing a piece of wire (like a paperclip) through the tiny hole on the drive. It will only open a little - once you can grab a hold of it you can simply pull it all the way out.:)

Didn't work, what do you mean? What happened, did you feel something moving? You have to keep the wire straight and the thing inside should move back without much effort (about 3cm/1inch inside) and the "door" should pop open.

Oh, and the PC should be shut down while you're doing this of course.:)

Go to control panel, system, hardware, device manager... right click on the cd drive and uninstall. reboot computer and it should re-install.
