i was just playin flight unlimited 2 and the disc drive is stuck! it wont open!
do you have a little hole on the front of the cd drive. If so, try pushing a paperclip into it. it should push the drawer out
What do you mean stuck? Is the door just not opening ?

what i do is get a screw driver and open in the hard way, or a knife.
Force it out with a knife, or use the paper clip method. Pry open with knife slighly, then pull foward with hand, or if it's the CDrom that's stuck, fix it's position, and then the drive should be ok.
I would use the emergency open method... suggested by Greenfrog... you may save yourself from damaging the drive...
and turn off your computer before doing anything...
or you could restart.. and that should free up the cdrom and let you open it properly
you can take the cover off and just take your cd from the inside if there isn't a hole to push a paper clip into.
i had an old CD-ROM drive once that i had to keep prying open every time.... i kinda miss that rough relationship
well, maybe the trays drive motor conked out, or the Coggs may have worn down making the tray inoperable, but id pry the door open and disregard the drive.
