How to open the cd/dvd combo drive of a Dell Latitude D600?

By melmellcc ·
I just got this used computer yesterday after I bought last Friday. It has Windows XP professional in it with cd/dvd combo drive. When I tried to open the cd/dvd drive through clicking the button on the side this laptop, it has a yellow flashing light that blinks but doesn't open. I checked the cd/dvd drive properties in the My Computer programs and click eject or open the drive, but still doesn't work. I wander if there's another trick on how to open this drive. Any comments and advice, as soon as possible, will be appreciated.

I also foung out when the drive was opened, there's a broken side near to the latch. that's probably why it doesn't eject. So sad to see it. I called the company selling it and they're going to send a new one. I just hope it will arrive safe.

Too bad they sold you the NB with a broken drive in the first place, though.
