I have two disk drives. The TDK drive will open but the drive below will not open. I even tried going to my computer chose the drive and hit open, but it still will not open. I ever tried prying it a little, still wont open. It is stuck closed for some reason. I have not used the drive for some time. Is it possible it rusted closed?

Guessing you really mean cd/dvd drives;)

There should be a small pin hole that you can poke a paperclip into and trigger it to open.

I had forgotten about that little pinhole opening. It worked, I got it open. The only way it will open is to stick a pen in the opening. The button still won;t open it. I am leaving it just slightly open so I can open it. Thanks partner for the tip.
