I have just bought a new laptop but I can't use a CD because the CD's hole appears to be smaller than the centre spindle of the CDROM unit. Is it possible that I have to remove something from the CDROM spindle before being able insert a CD on it??

Will the CD just sit in there? Otherwise it may need a slight push - I know that mine does, at least.

No, even if I push a bit the CD doesn't sit at all!

Sorry, you were absolutely right. I had to press very hard to make it sit. Now it works. Thanks.

make sure you dont have the draw out too far when you push, i broke my dell laptop draw that way.

typical man realy, trying to push too hard, when the thing is too far out.

You have to press the CD down on a laptop to engage the CD disc
