dvd tray won't open

Guest

machine has xp home edition. Came with dvd-rom (play only) and
cd-rw(writer). I replaced cd-rw(writer) with dvd-rw(writer). My dvd-rom(play
only) seldom opens when i press the tray open button. if i get into system
administration tools-disk management and do some things there as instructed
before on this forum i can get it to open after about 15-20 minutes. But i
have to do this every day. What can i do to make my dvd-rom always open/work?

Ask the manufacturer's tech support people. This is a Windows XP forum - not
hardware.

Try this...

Open My Computer | Right click your drive | Click Eject.

Or try this...

Straighten a paper clip, push the straight end into
the little (I mean small) hole on the front of the CD drive, there
will be a bit of resistance. Keep your hand out of the way. You
might consider doing this one with the computer turned OFF.

Gee Jerry, if you don't know, no need to get in a huff, besides i'm well
aware of the forum type-ever get caught up in the manufacturer blaming xp and
the xp people blaming the manufacturer? just tryin' to cover all bases- sorry
your ignorance upsets you!

Check your PC manufacturer web site to see if you have the most recent
firmware for the drive.
