Question about Apple iMac G5 Desktop
Empty dvd stuck in my computer, the computer doesn't recognize the dvd is in. I tried the eject button, tried powering down and holding down the mouse button while powering up. none of these worked must I use a big hammer and chisel?
When the Mac is turned on look for the small hole near the dvd drive (slot loading i take it?) you will need to insert a straightened paperclip or similar into the hole, the dvd should pop straight out, if the is no hole then if memory serves me the switch is just inside the slot on the right hand side (don't try if you arent confident as you don't want to risk breaking your drive)
also have you tried booting while holding eject, it's done the trick for me on a mackbook pro once or twice

If you're trying to eject a CD or DVD:
Choose Apple menu > Log Out, and then log in again. Try to eject the disc again.
If you still can't eject the CD or DVD, choose Apple menu > Restart. While your computer restarts, hold down the mouse button or trackpad button until the disc is ejected.
