Windows 7: Did paperclip trick, retrieved DVD, but door still won't open on PC?

Did paperclip trick, retrieved DVD, but door still won't open on PC?

Was having trouble ejecting disc, tried the paperclip trick, that worked enough so that I could pry the tray the rest of the way out and get the DVD. But, after I closed the tray it's still refusing to obey me. Ejecting still isn't working.

Can someone point me in a good direction? Thank you.

I'd see if any of the suggestions provided by SpiritX work. Start with updating device driver.

Replace the drive. They are inexpensive ($20 to $25 range).

The only drivers for optical drives (CD/DVD/Blu-Ray) are the default built in Windows drivers.
