Apple cd eject


There are a few ways to eject a disk.
Push the Eject button in the upper right corner of the keyboard.
Drag the disk to the trash.
Press Command-E

If the disk is stuck and these methods do not work many Macs have a tiny hole next to the CD slot. Carefully insert a small straightened paperclip straight into the hole and push until the CD pops out.

Holding down the left mouse button during startup also ejects a CD

Coins in macbook cd slot


This happened to me yesterday. My 3-year-old stuffed the Macbook's DVD/CD slot full of game tokens, hoping that one of them would play a movie. Took me his entire naptime to extract them, but everything works fine now.

First, open the guts of your laptop and remove the optical drive. Depending on your model the appropriate guide should be here:
www.ifixit.com/Guide/search/macbook+optical+drive+replacement

Among those I found the following excellent guide for mine:
http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/MacBook+Core+2+Duo+Optical+Drive+Replacement/518/4

Once the drive is out you can skip most of the remaining (replacement) steps, since you're putting the same drive back in.

Now switch to the following guide to get foreign objects out:

Good luck!

Aspire one keep saying no bootable device insert boot disk and press any key and I don't have a disk slot


You hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

Wii makes grinding noise, when disc is inserted, it immediately ejects it, accepts it back in, then ejects it onto the floor while making horrible grinding noises


There is either something inside of your Wii's DVD Drive blocking the insertion of the disc, or some of the gears inside of the DVD drive are damaged. Lots of times, one of the kids will stuff a penny, credit card, or some other foreign object inside of the Wii's disc slot. The following website sells the DVD drive mechanisms and does repairs on the Wii as well:

Coins placed in the disc slot of the Wii.


I would not advise using the drive if there are any loose objects inside. Doing so would void your warranty, cause damage to the wii, and possibly even bodily injury. If the disc should come into contact with the loose object while spinning at high speed, the disc could shatter and the shards may actually break through the drive casing.

A loose object, if it catches something traveling at high velocity, can easily damage the casing and the wii remember

The only practical solution is to remove the drive from the wii and obtain a replacement. It would be prohibitive to try to fish out the loose object, since you might damage the internal components in doing so. you will need to call Nintendo ( 1-800-255-3700) and see if they can fix it or guide you through taking the disk drive out

I don't think they will slide out if you turn the MBP on edge. I would take it to the Apple store and be prepared for a nice bill. I hear kids also do this in the disk player in the car to get it fixed It won't be cheap, I 'm afraid,

At the very least the drive will need to be removed, I fear. It may actually have to be replaced. A few hundred dollars, I would guess.

Good luck

CD/DVD drive will not accept any disk I try to put in it.


Do you have any small children in your house?
Seriously, I have 6 children. One (or two) of them put a quarter and two flat washers in my slot load CD drive. Took me over an hour to take it apart to fish them out.
I've also had a friend whose young children managed to get 2 cds into the slot load at the same time.
So, my primary suspect is a foreign object has gotten into the drive. I've never had a CD/DVD drive fail on an iMac other than that.
However, if it is a foreign object, you will need to take it in for repair, most likely. It is difficult to see in there. and even more difficult to grab the object.
I suppose that the cable could have become disconnected. I really doubt that the drive was a lemon, seeing that it worked for a year.

From the official Nintendo website:

"Object inserted into the Disc Slot If an object is inserted into the Disc Slot, it will automatically be pulled in, and it won't be possible to eject it. Do not attempt to open the Wii console or otherwise try to remove the object, as it may result in further damage to the console.
The Wii console will need to be repaired. Because this type of damage is not covered under Nintendo's warranty, there will be a charge for the repair. Please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options."

There is a sd card stuck where the cd should go. There is also a disk there. Do you know how to fix it?


If you can see the SD card, Get a toothpick and wrap Tape onto it then reverse the tape so that you have sticky on outside. See it you gcan retract it that way. You risk damaging the Disc eject system if you try to force the disc to eject by pressing the eject button more than 10 seconds. Once you get the SD card out you can do the 10 second eject button thing.
