Did your optical drive devour your favorite CD? Did your 3-year-old fill the slot with coins? Worry no more! This guide will show you how to remove a jammed disk or foreign object from your optical drive.
With the optical drive removed from the computer, remove the screws securing the top panel of the optical drive.
With the screws removed, shift the top panel slightly toward the rear of the optical drive so the retaining tabs clear the body of the drive.
Lift the top panel off the optical drive.
Remove any objects stuck in the optical drive.
If a disk is stuck in the drive, simply lift it off the spindle motor.
