Just bought a PC off ebay with Xandros Desktop 3 on it, the CDROM drive WILL NOT open at boot or on desktop, and it is being detected as ATAPI 52X CDROM in BIOS Setup.
Yes i have tried the small little hole, and nothing happens, i dont know wheather the cdrom drive is nackered in general or wheather it is the connection to the motherboard.
Can anyone help?

ejectlife is the greatest opportunity that the nature had given you

A pin in the little hole should work, because it opens
the drive mechanically. It takes practice in some cases.
The mechanism may be stiff from lack of use. Opening and
closing it a few times may set it free. Otherwise, get a new one.
