Question about Toshiba SD Computers & Internet
I had a cd containing pictures, that had a designed cd label on the top. I put the cd in the drive, the computer made lots of loud noises, and the cd has now been stuck in my Mac ibook G4 for one week. My computer will not even recognize that there is a cd in the drive. I keep hitting the eject button, but it doesn't do anything. I need to be able to burn cds, so please help ASAP!! Thank you so much!
I think you will find a pin hole in the cd cover near the button. Unfold a paper clip and insert it in the hole and that should manually eject the tray. If that is no good then the drive needs to be removed and opened to get to the label and disk.

Yes your quite right, the solution to the problem is a new writer, although you have to get the same one if it's fitted internally to a notebook. You can update the firmware, thats not a problem, you may be getting confused with bios updates which are a knightmare. I assume you have tried the usual, uninstal and re install of the dvd drive, by uninstalling it in device manager on the cd/dvd drive line and click '+' sign, right click and uninstal, then restart pc to automatically install again. The cd recognition says that the drive capability to read and write dvd has corrupted andfailed, so really the only solution would be a new drive

This is an Update to my above problem:
I've managed at last to pry open - with a huge scredriver - the very sturdy black metal clasp that holds down the cd-dvd driver onto the shaft. Now I could lift it up, see the small frontal hole that manually frees the disk tray. I stuck in a pin and at last it opened!!
I could see that the "captivated" disk had very deep "skid" mark on its playable side, as if sometihng was carving into it. The same carving happened to a new disk I inserted, although it played and ejected normally - only with strange machnical noises. I think that some of the plastic cogwheels that turn or eject the disk got loose. I stuck them in and now it works fine, but I lost confidence in the machine - fearing it may stuck again or ruin my disks.

SOURCE: mac os x won't eject disk
Shut down the Mac, and then start it up again, holding the primary key of your mouse down. That commands the Mac to eject any discs. It should work just fine.
