  • Removing a CD from a laptop drive

    My old laptop died completely, and it has a CD that I want in the drive. I can get the drive out, but I can't figure out how to get it open. Is there a simple way to do it, or will I have to break it open?

    There should be a small pin hole in the drive, Sam. You'll need a paperclip or something with a bit of strength to shove in the hole and unlock/push open the drive.

        there should be a pin sized hole somewhere on the cd door... put a needle/pin into it it should release the hinge

            Yeh, maybe, but I don't sit on my bike patting it and talking to it.
