Question about PC Desktops
You didn't go far enough in with the paperclip. Some drives, the eject mechanism is an inch deep or more. Just keep pushing it in and the CD will come out.
You won't damage it no matter how far you push it in ...the "barrel" for the emergency eject does not connect to anything electrical - it just has a switch somewhere down in the tube that you have to reach, which triggers the drive door to open.
Hope this helps - please rate :)
