Help!!

This has just happened this morning. Opened my CD Drive as normal, popped a disc in and played a game.

1 hour later after getting a touch bored of it, quit the game but.....the CD Drive won't open!

Whenever I press the 'Eject' button, the green light that I assume means there is something in the drive goes red and it just won't open.

What's going on?

Unravel a paperclip and poke the end into the small hole on the front of the drive.

What should happen then???

  VoG II 11:34 11 Apr 04

Drive should open.

  DANZIG 11:38 11 Apr 04

Right. I'll give it a shot.

make sure you push the paper clip in the hole hard and far enough so that you feel a bit of resistance , then give it a bit of a push and it'll pop open.
