  • Not all CD/DVD drives have a manual eject hole. For example, slot loading optical drives do not have a manual eject option. For more information regarding the CD/DVD drive, such as the existence and/or location of a manual eject hole, please refer to the user manual specific to the CD/DVD drive or computer in which the CD/DVD drive is installed.
  • If this is a notebook computer with an internal CD/DVD drive, ensure the computer is on a hard level surface before attempting to manually eject the CD/DVD drive tray.
