    DVD Reader not ejecting when pressing it's button


    As title says, but it does eject if I tell it to through Windows File Explorer and it does read and write discs, and seems to be working normally. Been trying to fiddle with its cable too. Is this just a hardware failure? Have done some diagnostics too through Windows.

    I had a HP DVD writer that started not opening the tray when I pressed the open button, it might open after about 8 presses. Just got so annoying, I just got a new burner and it works fine. So, I would say hardware failure.

    Mine worked before after about the same amount of presses. Now I can press a hundred times without anything. Luckily a DVD burner isn't expensive.

    Funny, that's the same mode of failure I'm having on my desktop DVD drives - eject button fails.

    The button is probably bust. Just right click the drive in My Computer and choose Eject.
