a DVD could become stuck in the drive for any number of reasons unfortunately it usually is the mechanical failure of the drive which causes the DVD to get stuck.

Have you ever gotten a CD or DVD stick in the CD drive of your desktop or laptop computer.  or perhaps one third if there was a CD or DVD inside of a drive that will not open.  There is an easy way to find out without any computer repair costs.  And to eject a stuck CD, well it is really easy to fix. whether its a laptop or desktop computer..

If you look very closely to the front faceplate the drive.  You’ll find a small pinhole, go get a paperclip. Straighten out that paper clip and firmly and deliberately stick it in the pinhole until you start to feel some resistance.  At that point continue pushing it in and the CD or DVD drive tray will eject a stuck cd.

The photo below illustrates the location of the pinhole on a laptop computer.
