G72 CD Drive won't open

[ Edited ]

I have an HP G72 computer.  The CD drawer was opening fine, but now it won't.  Does anyone have any suggestions?   Thanks.

Will it eject with a Windows command? Right click on the drive icon in Windows Explorer (Computer) and select eject and see if that works, but typically when the button stops working the drive has to be replaced. This is one place Macs are better because you can always open the CD tray with keyboard keys or mouse commands, even before the OS loads. That's only one thing, though, not enough for me to go to the Mac side.
