View Full Version : Drives will not open

Anyone please help?

The DVD RW & DVD drive have suddenly stopped opening.
Windows recognises them and the lights come on when I try to open them but there is just a thud and they won't open.

Can anyone help me rectify the problem please?

All help appreciated

Is this 1 drive or multiple different drives? If it is just one drive it might be jammed and you could try opening it the manual way by getting a paperclip and pushing it into the tiny little hole on the front of the drive. This unlocks it so you can slide it open in case it dies for whatever reason. If it is all your drives not working then it might be a driver or OS issue.
