The motor mechanism that opens the tray is probably stuffed. Trays that are closed by pushing them shut instead of using the eject button often have this problem.

Time for a new DVD drive.

Next time try Wainuitechs trick, a hammer :badpc: :p HEY!!! -- theres a patent on that :lol: :p

BTW - its not a good idea to have the PC running when using the paper clip method to open the drive - as there is power still going to the drive and it can work against the drive mechanism

i had it running when i did the paperclip trick, so that 's probably why it wouldn't open.

patent pending last time i heard :D
