CD AND DVD ANNOYANCES

REMOVE CDS WHEN THE POWER'S OFF

The Annoyance:

My CD-RW drive refuses to eject a disc. Must I resort to the paper clip trick?

The Fix:

Not necessarily. Restart Windows. As it's booting up, press the eject button and the drive should pop open. If not, shut down your PC and turn it on again, tap the CD-ROM drive's eject button, grab the disc out of the tray (even as the tray is still extending), and nudge the tray back in. As soon as it's fully retracted, press the PC's power button to turn it off.
