Have a look for a small hole on the front of the cd drive Amy.
Get a paper clip and straighten it out then push the clip into the hole gently but firmly until the drawer pops open.
Otherwise you may have to force it.

We are not talking about a five and a half inch drive bay that a cd/dvd occupies but a small hole about the size of a pin head on the front of the cd.
Please look carefully.

Sorry I may have misjudged your previous reply Amy.
Do you mean you have a small hole on your dvd drive but NOT your cdrom drive?

well if the drive doesnt work anyway...i wuold take it out of the system and force it open. If it doesnt have a pin sized hole in the front thats pretty much your only option left. It's just strange though considering most cd/dvd drives have that small hole.

Lol we are in front of each other Amy in reponce to these posts.
How did your dad manage to get a cd into the drive in the first place?
If you can't get it out by normal means and you feel it's beyond repair then just force the drawer open with a screwdriver or some such object.

Some drives have a cover that you can pull down to expose the actual cd drive cover. If so, you should find that very tiny hole on the actual cd drive cover.
