Windows 7: Windows doesn't recognize DVD eject

19 Apr 2010   #1

Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate
Windows doesn't recognize DVD eject

Howdy, I've got an odd problem.
When I insert a disk, the OS reads it correctly, and I can do whatever with it. However when I remove it, Windows still shows the disk is inserted, and inserting another disk causes any program that tries to access it to hang indefinitely (including individual windows explorer instances).

After several hours of google and trying various fixes (including removing the drivers for the dvd-drive and ATA Channel 0-5, disabling windows native burn capabilities, uninstalling CyberLink PowerDVD 8 and Nero Express 9, and everything in this thread), I've got it so that the drive recognizes a single removal of CD/DVD and insertion of a new CD/DVD, however the second time it still gets stuck.

I'm on an Alienware m17x with a TS-T633A DVDRW.

Thanks for any help,

I'm also on a Alienware laptop, and my portal 2 disc got stuck inside, and i can't find the eject option on my computer. i run a windows 7.
that, and when i'm trying to burn a image onto a cd disc, it just says no disc drive found, alsotho there is a slotload one on the side of my laptop, haha.

Anyways, how did you get your laptop to detect and eject the CD?

I only suggest this as a temp workaround. You might try it and see if it works. You evidently have a hardware or software problem which is not evident to me at this time. It might also give you a clue as to whether your problem is hardware or software related.
