Re: How Open a Jammed DVD Drive?
Look for a hole suited to taking a straightened paper clip.
You didn't give the actual model number, so I just grabbed
the first Media Center E-machine I could find. The "hole" is above
each optical drive, slightly to the right of the center line
of the machine. Straighten a paper clip, and push in. Some
drives, the paper clip hole just releases a latch. On others,
you could be attempting to move more substantial things, so
it may take more force. There's a limit to what a paper clip
can do, in terms of force.
