http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/mad.gif Hi, I'm new here and hopefully I won't sound to ignorant. I'm having trouble getting the CD rom tray open on my modem. I've tried everything short of using a hammer on it. I have some programs I'd really like to install and it's driving me crazy. Hope someone can help. Thanks

CD ROM drives usually have a manual "emergency" tray opener.

Look on the front of the drive, you'll see a small hole, about the size of a toothpick. Get a large paper clip, the 2 incher, and straighten it out, push it into the hole and feel around, you'll find a gear. Push against it to rotate the gear and the tray should open. Don't use excessive force.

If you had everything...Where would you put it?
