    No sm hole? Like next to the eject button? Thats strainge, all cd drives have them even back when cd drives first came out. The only other thing that I know is to remove the drive from your notebook and if nessesary (in most cases it is) open the case to the drive its self. Sorry I couldn't be more help to you.

How to eject a cd


A few ways of doing this

1) restart mac and press down the trackpad button after you hear the startup noise

2) if that does not work try opening up disk utility which is located in applications and then in the utilities folder 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 DVDicon1.png 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 should replace it free off charge. Hope this helps.

Cd in macbook wont ejec


This can be a problem. First try rebooting the machine, and holding the eject button when you hear the startup tone. Hopefully, that will force-eject it.
If that doesn't work, you'll need to get creative. Get a playing card or something similar, and put some rolled-over tape on one side close to the edge, so there's a sticky side out. Turn the computer off, and try to get the playing card into the CD drive, with the tape making contact with the stuck CD. Reboot, holding the eject button when you hear the eject button again, and pulling the card out. Hopefully, the CD will come out with the card. If it doesn't work, just keep trying, and you'll get it out eventually.
Generally what causes this is keeping CDs in the computer for an extended period of time, especially while the computer is powered off. Make sure you remove all CDs before moving or turning off your computer.

My cd is stuck in player of a 2004 chevy blazer 4x4


  • You need to wait for your car's stereo to cool down. If you used it for it for an extended period of time, it may have gotten hot and the ejection device may not respond.

  • Hold down the eject button.If you can hear the mechanical ejection noise. If your car stereo is making this noise, it is more than likely that the CD is just sticking inside the CD player and you can try and grab it with your had and pull it out .

  • Look for a hole the size of a pin on your car stereo's CD player. This hole is very small and looks similar to one on a CD-Rom drive, after locating the hole, use a pin and attempt to manually eject the CD. Now in case you have a factory stereo.

    Hope this will help you out.
