Re: CD/DVD drive won't open

I have a HP about 6 years old.  Yesterday while importing a CD the noise sounded from the top drawer like someone was being tortured.  The bottom drawer still works, but can't open the top drawer with a library CD inside. I tried the paper clip but that didn't work.  Just put it in the hole and pull it out?  Help!   Do I hit the button while putting the clip in the hole?  Green light still goes on and it's trying to open, but it's stuck.  Any suggestions......PLEASE?

Re: CD/DVD drive won't open

Your suggestion of right clicking on the My Computer CD icon I am having trouble with because I don't see an icon like that on my computer. Where would I find that? I tried the  paperclip trick andit opened and I was able to put a CD in the drive but now it won't let me get the CD out using the paperclip trick.







The light is not lighting up so do you think the drive is dead.
