How do you force eject a disc from a macbook pro?


Five ways to eject a stuck CD or DVD from the optical drive
Ejecting the stuck disc can usually be done in one of the following ways:
1. Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the left mouse button until the disc ejects.
2. Press the Eject button on your keyboard.
3. Click on the Eject button in the menubar.
4. Press COMMAND-E.
5. If none of the above work try this: Open the Terminal application in your Utilities folder. At the prompt enter or paste the following:
/usr/bin/drutil eject
If this fails then try this:
Boot the computer into Single-user Mode. At the prompt enter the same command as used above. To restart the computer enter "reboot" at the prompt without quotes.

Dvd disc


Hi There,
Try holding down the 'mouse' bar (i.e., The clicker below the track pad, or the track-pad itself if you don't have the 'bar') when you are starting up the laptop. This will usually eject disks in the optical drive.
If that doesn't work, and dragging the disk icon to the trash doesn't eject the disk, then you probably have an issue with the drive itself.
Take a look at ifixit.com for guides on removing the optical drive and opening the drive to get the disk out.
Hope this helps & good luck!

I can't open my disc drive on my Acer Aspire 5820T without using a pin. How do I get the eject button to work?


I suggest that you can use the other method to eject: press start and go to my computer, select the disk drive and you should see an eject option in the menu bar.Remember that disk drives are subject to computer admin and do not respond quickly to a button press, especially if a disk process in taking place...

My hp laptop keeps ejecting disc itself when i insert any disc. Wat do i do pls


> keep ejecting

The disk-drive is having a mechanical problem, i.e., it is not fully-loading the disk,
or it is not detecting that the disk is fully-loaded. Therefore, it assumes that the open/close
mechanism is "jammed", and so it ejects, to indicate that the disk-loading was not completed.

Replace the disk-drive.

I'm having problems ejecting cd's from laptop after they're done burning.


Hi

If you go into the computer and open it look for the cd/dvd drive
highlight and right click it and go down to the properties
now click on recording up in the top right hand side of that box
then go down to and put a tick in the box where it says
Automatically eject the disc after a master burn then restart the laptop
this should then automatically eject after a burn

if it don't then

click on your computer icon
it should open it up and show you your hard drive/s
also the cd/dvd drives
if you highlight the cd/dvd drive then right click it and go down to eject hopefully this will eject it
also there is a small pin hole just beneath the push eject switch on the drive itself if you push something thin in there gently but firmly it should also eject the drive

hope this has helped you
please let us know if fixya has fixed it for ya

I have macpro 13inc.my problem is my disc is not working with the eject is not function.so still my dish is inside of my disc unit how can i remove manually pls. give me instruction properly thanks lot...


Thanks for contacting Fixya Support.

With the Macbook Pro 13" having a Superdrive or Combo optical drive, you are dealing with a slot-loaded drive. As a result, if you have a disc that is loaded into your optical drive, which will not eject, then there isn't a manual way to remove the disc without causing damage to either the optical drive or the disc itself.

In most cases, of a potentially stuck disc in a Apple notebook's optical drive, a visit to your local Apple Retail Store Genius Bar or local Apple-authorized service center would be highly recommended.

With that noted however, here are some troubleshooting steps to try from the Mac OS X side first before having to take that step and visit an Apple service provider:

- CD DVD EJECT -

- - Reboot your Macbook Pro 13"

- - Hold down your Media Eject key on your keyboard pad prior to the Apple Chime starting.

- - Keep holding the Media Eject key down while your Macbook Pro 13" boots up

- - The disc should eject before you reach your Desktop

- - When it does, simply release your Media Eject key.

If that does not work, try this:

-EJECTING DISC USING TERMINAL-

From your Desktop:

* Click anywhere on a blank space on your desktop. Now you should see Finder listed near the Apple menu icon.


* From the Finder menu, click on Go, then Utilities from the

drop-down menu. This will take you to your Utilities folder.

* Locate and open the Terminal application.

* At prompt, type: drutil eject and press the Return key on your keyboard


This command line should eject the disc from the drive, unless there are mechanical issues with the drive.

If neither of these steps work, then I would be remiss as an Apple Certified Tech, if I did not recommend you proceed to take your Macbook Pro 13" in for service.

I hope this helps.

Best Regards,

My PC won't allow me to right click to choose the eject option for a CD. I want to know if there is a way to remove the CD manually.


The DVD drive itself has a small horizontal 'eject' button that you can press to eject the disc.
If the button fails the disc is stuck however the DVD drive will have a small hole near the eject button- about 2mm in diameter. Straighten a paperclip or similar and push into the hole until the disc drive mechanism releases and opens.

Thanks,

Dell xps m1330 dvd drive will not eject cd inside


Im a dell tech, and i hate those cdrom styles, but, that is what the consumer wants, so we make them. Try starting the machine, then press F2 to enter the BIOS. once in the bios, press the eject button. listen for any noises, (an attempt to eject). if you hear a sound, it means the drive should be capable of ejecting the disc, and perhaps the disc has not seated correctly. If the disc will not eject, you must contact Dell. This is from the DELL dcse site: " Optical Drive The XPS M1330 has a slot-loading optical drive instead of a conventional tray-loading module. There is no mechanical eject mechanism for the drive to eject stuck discs. This means you must replace the drive if a disc gets stuck in the drive. After replacing the drive, disassemble the old drive to remove the disc for the customer."
