Re: Extracting stuck DVD from laptop

Will the drive open at all? If so, and the disks are replaceable, then a pair of needle nosed pliers may do the trick. If the disks are of value to you, a replacement drive doesn't cost that much, it can be pulled open if you can get a g rip on it. This does not guarantee that the disks will not be damaged though. The top disk should come out fairly easily, the bottom disk is going to have the drive spindle in the cemter of it which will not allow it to be removed without the drive being fully open.

Subject: [TechTalk] Extracting stuck DVD from laptop

I actually have two DVD's stuck in the drive of my laptop. They won't eject because they are jammed in there. I have tried to use tweezers to reach one but cannot reach in far enough to grab ahold of either disk. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
