I have a new Dell Extreme and was ripping my CD collection and after about 40 CDs the CD ROM door will not open (by using the eject button). Is there some way to eject other than with the button. I'm new to Vista and previously could see the drive under My Computer in XP, but under My Computer in Vista I can't even see the drive??

Any suggestions?

There should be a tiny hole near the eject button. Carefully push a straightened paperclip into that hole and the cd drawer should open a little bit so you can slowly pull it the rest of the way open. If you can't see the drive in Vista, you might need to either update the drivers or replace the drive.

I agree
