Fix CD / DVD Drive jamming

If you have an old (read ancient) computer, you might be having problems getting the CD/DVD tray out of the drive (It sometimes does, sometimes it doesn’t). This is a very simple fix.

1) Press the eject button repeatedly and somehow eject the tray.
2) You can find this belt wound around this disc like thingy.

3) Use a forceps or some pointy instrument to pull (carefully) out the belt. You’ll have this in hand.

4) Go to the sink and wash this thoroughly in water.

5) Put the belt back carefully.
6) See if it works. It should.
If it doesn’t, its probably time to buy a new CD/DVD drive. 😉

So lazy that he can't even fill this column out.
