cd writer

Help! While burning a cd, my computer froze and I had no choice but to switch it off and back on again - now it won't recognise my cd writer and I can't open it either to take my disc out! Whaty do I do now?Do I have to format my drive and start again?

There's usually a small hole on the front of the CDR. Straighten out a paper clip and gently insert it. That normally opens the drawer.
Check the past posts re non-recognition, there may well be a solution there.

As NotsoNewuser says a paper clip should get the drawer to open.

If your os is XP try "System Restore"
