Cd Won't Eject in Easy CD Creator 4 and 5 Posted January 23, 2006 · Report reply Hello Again, All I can tell you about the CD burner drive is that it is a HP CD-Writer 9500 Series. The drive will not open at this time and the light is still red. As long as it is red the computer won't recognize it in the Device Manager or anywhere else. Usually if I restart the light will come up green the next time. I don't know what the problem is or if it's at all related to the Easy CD Creator. I'm nearing my wits end. Okay, it's no use to you as it is. Something has caused the drive to lock up, and you'll need to power it off to reinitialize the drive. Power the whole machine down. Wait 15-30 seconds and re-start it. As the machine restarts, push the eject button every few seconds until it ejects whatever disc is in there. -Don't put that CD back in that drive, but go get the DriveID for it from Device Manager. -Do see if that drive will read a commercial silver CDROM or audio disc, but be prepared to power down and eject as it powers back up again if the disc locks in there. -Do see if you can read your Direct CD discs in the SDM-1202 drive, and come back here with the results.
