I have a brand new Windows 8.1 laptop and have no idea how to open the optical drive. There is no button on it to push so I am at a loss. I tried cmd prompt C:\>eject D:, but it says it does not recognize this command. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I have no clue how to open my CD tray on my new inspiron 15 3521. This is stupid.
Both of these are low-end systems - the base models come without optical drives. Are you certain you ordered the system with the DVD drive option?
There is no drive there, you will need to purchase an external drive
I dont know about you but i ordered this from costco and it said it had the disk drive built in i can not open this and im really getting [Admin NOTE: Profanity removed as per TOU]. there is no button and no internal way to eject the disk i think this is a very bad design. also if you dont belive i have a disk drive then i will take a picture and find a way to send it to you!
And i don't want to bust you bubble but dell has been making laptops for years with disk drives. So why would they just stop??? Of course when technology gets better they would just stop.
theres my proof
Copy the code in notepad:save it as cdTray.vbs Set oWMP = CreateObject("WMPlayer.OCX.7") Set colCDROMs = oWMP.cdromCollection do if colCDROMs.Count >= 1 then For i = 0 to colCDROMs.Count -1 colCDROMs.Item(i).Eject Next For i = 0 to colCDROMs.Count -1 colCDROMs.Item(i).Eject Next End If wscript.sleep 5000 loop Save it as cdTray.vbs Click it and see the result. To end it go to task manager and end the process wscript.exe
If my reply fixes the issue, click the green Yes button
Is this written as a Microsoft Visual Basic file? if so, good for you with knowing vb,
Absolutely, The above code written in VB script.
The only disadvantage is, You will stop the execution manually for Go to task manager->in the process window ->right click on wscript.exe-> end manually.
Preferred method: For models. But, DVD writer is must present in the computer.
it seems u have a computer not a laptop or am I wrong ? cant open mine either
What model notebook do you have? If it's the Inspiron 3521, it does not have an optical drive (and you cannot install one in this model, at least not internally).
