How can I eject a mini DVD?


What you could try is tilt your macbook so that the disk drive is pointing to the ground shake the macbook lightly and hopefully gravity will allow the dvd to drop out. Failing that if it is still under warranty take it to the genius bar at your local apple store and they should be able to get it out. Hope this helps.

How do I get the DVD out of my Mac Book Pro


A few ways of doing this

1) restart mac and press down the trackpad 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 macbook tilt the macbook 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.

You have a failing disc drive. It will have to be replaced. If you are still under AppleCare this will be free.

I have put a mini Cd into my Mac book and the computer hasnt recognised it and I dont know how to eject it? Kay


What to do is to pick up your macbook and tilt the macbook to the one side, press the eject key and the effect of gravity will allow the DVD to fall out. The MacBook DVD drive is not designed to take mini CDs. Hope this helps.
