    if its got a small hole in the front, open up a paper clip and push it into the hole and the drive will open...

    To answer 1):

    There should be a very small round hole on the front of the drive, push a pin in it and the drive tray should open.

    No idea about 2)

    EDIT: Beaten to it

    at less than £20 for a DVD writer I'd say it was time to upgrade - it'll cost you more than that to get the cd writer fixed. Scan has an NEC 5170 drive for £19.39
