It's supposedly to trigger an emergency release latch in case you can't get the door open.
Although my Compaq (Mata****ty) CD-ROM didn't have one, the LG CD-RW that I replaced it
with does, and the instruction manual (in PDF format off the internet) described the whole
thing in detail (and the hole thing in detail, for that matter.)
There's another slightly larger hole on my drive for headphones. Don't confuse the two.
