Hi Fiona,

I assume that you have tried to eject the optical drive through windows explorer. Have you tried to eject the drive while being in the system BIOS? If not, follow the below mentioned steps:

  1. Restart the system and tap F2 key at Dell logo.
  2. System will enter the BIOS.
  3. Try to Eject the optical drive by pressing the eject button on the optical drive.

Please post the results.

Thanks & Regards,
Nikhil D

Fiona,

To eject a DVD disc, try going to 'My Computer', then right click the optical drive that has the disc installed in and select 'Eject', in the drop down window.

If you mean removing the DVD drive, then use the instructions in the Owners Manual 'Remove and Installing Section' here:
