    Just one CD or every music CD?


    The Mac will eject the CD if it's unreadable -- for example, if it's so scratched that it can't be recognized as data.

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

My macbook won't start. how do I eject an audio CD?


You could be right. What to do is start it up and hold down the trakcpad button as soon as it starts up. Failing that try the F12 key or the eject key when starting it up, sometimes actually lifting the macbook up and pointing the DVD drive downwards i.e. using gravity to let the CD drop.

If the CD ejects and it isn't the problem causing the startup problems, what I would be tempted to do if the other troubleshooting solutions have not worked, if it still under warranty or if you have Applecare, contact apple and arrange to get it taken in for repair. Failing that take it to your local Apple Store and make an appointment at the genius bar, they usually are fairly good at diagnosing problems and solving them.

Hi, I m a new user of apple mac book, I m trying to insert a disk in my dvd rom but still i am not able to open my dvd player. Can u help me that how will be open the dvd rom in apple mac book? means any...


Hi,
I would please like to tell you there is no button in MACBOOK to eject a tray as there is no tray.
You simply see a line on the right hand side of your laptop where you can insert a disc, u need to insert a disc into that part and when you insert it you will show you an icon on your desktop showing you the cd contents.
When you want to eject it keep in mind u need to click on the icon on your desktop and press the eject button or u can also use the keyboard and press the eject button, which will bring the disc out automatically.
Please do not worry try it, I'am sure it will work for you.
If there would be any problem and you need any help please do not hesitate to ask.
I'am also giving you a link to see the video of how to insert and eject the cd, please note this is the old model of the macbook, the only difference is that the drive is now located in the right hand side of the laptop, dont worry take a look.

CD Eject failure - Inserted blank cd to record songs, system would not recognized cd and will not eject. Continues to spin.


Switch off the computer.
Then restart it holding down the mouse click. Keep holding it down until the CD pops out.
If that doesn't work turn the computer off again then restart it and immediately hold down the CD eject button. Keep holding until the CD comes out.
If that doesn't work, take it to a service cenre.

Hi- I've just inserted a CD into my MacBook Pro


CD Stuck in Device
First try the normal methods to remove the disc. Drag its icon to the Trash can in the Dock or select 'Eject' from the File menu. If you are running a virtual machine, e.g. VMFusion, ensure that the CD is disconnected from the virtual machine. This will sometimes allow the CD to now show up in Mac OS X. Shut down the computer and start up whilst holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared. If you have Toast Titanium installed on your computer, choose EJECT DISC from the menubar. Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder Open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button. Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism. Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray. Restart the computer while holding down Command-Option-O-F, to enter the Open Firmware prompt. Type "eject cd" without the quotes, and press return. The disk ought to eject. To start into OS X, type "mac-boot" without the quotes. Press return, and the computer will continue with the startup. (This will not work on an Intel Mac. There is no Open Firmware on Intel Macs. ) If your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button.

Superdrive won't play audio cd's


Not Everything Works with i-tunes. Try setting QuickTime as the default and see if that works.

PowerBook G4 won't eject cd by any means found on apple support


If you can hear that it's trying, it might be getting pinched while trying to eject, especially if something pressed down on the case at that spot. Try gently widening the opening with a flat head screwdriver while you are ejecting the CD. just put the driver in and twist a bit to widen the slot. Also, check to make sure that the fuzzy stuff that brushes off the disk when you insert it - and keeps out dust - hasn't been damaged. If it is partially missing, the missing part may be inside, keeping the CD from ejecting.

Audio CD problelm


The CDs are being ejected as most likely the drive cannot focus correctly.  It is most certain that the drive will need to be swapped out and replaced at an apple service centre.
