    Hello! I was given a portable Toshiba SuperMulti drive to accompany my Acer Laptop (Windows 7.) I am just now trying to use it to watch a DVD as my television is not working. I know this seems like an idiot question but I cannot figure out how to open the tray! I even googled an exact photo which viewed the tray in an open position, but it just will not budge. What am I doing wrong? Thanks

    Does it look like this one? With the portable drive plugged into a USB port that works, see if it's light comes on.....that's a signal it is up and working.


    Usually the rounded oval button will open the tray- press it, wait a bit....keep pressing. They can be stuck- there is another way to try to open the tray:

    Open Computer, My Computer, or ThisPC whatever shows your drives....this portable should show in Removable drives area......


    Right click the portable DVD drive if it shows in that window and select "Eject" and that would also open the tray.

    Another way, look for a tiny round hole in the front of the tray, using a straightened out paper clip, poke gently into that hole not too far....you will feel a little give when you contact the tray eject button inside the drive. Tray should also open that way.
