Question about Apple 2.16GHz iMac Intel Core 2 Duo DVDRW/CD-RW Desktop PC Mac Desktop
A few ways of doing this
1) restart mac and press down the mouse button after you hear the startup noise
2) if that does not work try opening up disk utility and click on the icon of your disk under the left hand column then go up to eject button and click eject
3) or open up terminal found in the utilities folder within your applications folder and then type in drutil tray eject and then press return
4) Finally what to do is try pick up your imac tilt the imac to the one side and press the eject key and hopefully the effect of gravity will allow the CD to fall out.
However, I would say that DVD drives in all macs are a bit suspect and if your macbook is still under warranty or under AppleCare take it back to the Apple Store and tell them that the DVD drive is faulty and they will replace it free off charge.
If it is out of warranty there is one other way to do it which I have used recently but IT CAN BREAK THE DVD DRIVE (Use it at your own risk), so only use it as a last resort. Get a thin piece of plastic (or credit card) and put a piece of double sided tape on it then with the macbook switched off insert the piece of plastic with the tape facing down in relation to the keyboard. Put it in about half an inch and you may be able to drag the DVD out.
Hope this helps.
