A disk is stuck in the drive and will not eject
Explanation: You are trying to eject a disk (usually a 3.5" disk) from the floppy disk drive but it is stuck. Usually this means that you press the eject button, the disk pops up and starts to eject, but then falls back in place into the drive.
Diagnosis: This is usually caused by the metal slider on the disk coming loose and snagging on something inside the drive. If it happens often then it may be the brand of disks you are using, or it could be the drive.
