How to Open CD/DVD Tray Inspiron 15 3537 Windows 8.1

This question is not answered

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.

  • Hi,

    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
