Unlocking CD door

First, do not ask for replies to your email address. Providing that address in a public environment is an invitation to having it recorded and passed around. Now, your CD ROM should have a small hole in the front bezel through which you can insert a sturdy paperclip to open it. This won't work if there is an object jammed inside. This might require disassembly. Good luck.

Thanks Steven!

Yes, I know you're right about the address thing, didn't think about it 'til it was too late. I did get the door unlocked by going through "properties" for that drive. Thanks again for posting.
