How to eject a disk from a slot drive, when you've tried everything else

This is about trying to eject a CD or DVD stuck in a slot drive.
Most computers have a drawer-based cd drive which rarely suffers from disk jams.

Some high end PCs (and nearly all Macs) have slot drives where you feed the disk into a slot, the disk is then pulled into the machine. This gives better structural strength to the case, looks neater etc etc...

The problem is that occasionally a disk will get stuck. and there’s no little release hole on the front to push a paperclip in. There is lots of advice on the internet for the Macs, the Wii, and Pioneer drives of varying types, and most of these advise OS tricks, or firmware commands, however this trick is for when all those methods have been tried, and the disk is still trapped in the machine.

The idea is to stop the disk spinning and fool the drive into thinking the CD is bad, and it will eject it. I was taught this trick by a retired engineer, and it works a treat.

Fold a piece of cardboard (I used the side of a Frosties box) lengthways twice, until it’s quite stiff... Carefully push it into the slot until it bumps up against the edge of the CD/DVD.

Start the machine, and push the cardboard firmly against the disk to prevent it spinning. Wait for the regurgitating noises, and remove the cardboard to allow the disk to be ejected.

Hi my mixer on the right hand side doesn't work, it keeps telling me that its an error and wont eject the disc that it has in it.

Some of the failures to eject a disk problems are due to failure or slipping of a little drive belt that moves the carriage out. Also sometimes the alignment is bad and the disk hits the front escutcheon.

You may need a new Hard Drive. It sounds as if you have the old Mac. Mini. If so? look on line for Mac Mini 4,1 "Core 2 Duo" 2.4 (Mid-2010) you can find good deals on one, that would cost as much to repair your unit. eBay is one place to look

Was going to leave this question? Normally computer will react that way when a blank disk that is not formatted is put into the drive. The blank disk then requires formatting and will function. Not sure if this answers your quesiton. Sorry.

Dell xps desktop slot load optical disk drive stuck. Wont eject disk and no pin hole to stick a paperclip in.

It's probably a driver issue, I know this because I reinstalled WIN7 Pro, because of some experimenting and it was after the reinstall that media wouldn't eject using the touch-bar ejecter, although I was able to get everything else working flawlessly. No problem though, just open My Computer, right click on the CD/DVD Drive and click eject from the pulldown menu. Currently I'm looking for the driver fix, but haven't found it YET~! P.S. Anyone who thinks or says it's the BIOS is crazy... don't listen to them. It's more than likely a chipset driver because it's hardware, but don't rule proprietary software. Hope this helps~!
