SOURCE: mac mini superdrive ejects discs

Hi
I think the answer is in your question. Pioneer DVD-RW drive, DVD+R disc.
For some reason known only to Apple, some drives do not work with all discs. Mine will not burn -R dual Layer discs.

Ejecting a Stuck CD in Mac OSX


  • First try the normal methods to remove the disc. Drag its icon to the Trash can in the Dock or select 'Eject' from the File menu.
  • If you are running a virtual machine, e.g. VMFusion, ensure that the CD is disconnected from the virtual machine. This will sometimes allow the CD to now show up in Mac OS X.
  • Shut down the computer and start up whilst holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared.
  • If you have Toast Titanium installed on your computer, choose EJECT DISC from the menubar.
  • Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder
  • Open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button.
  • Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism.
  • Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray.
  • Restart the computer while holding down Command-Option-O-F, to enter the Open Firmware prompt. Type "eject cd" without the quotes, and press return. The disk ought to eject. To start into OS X, type "mac-boot" without the quotes. Press return, and the computer will continue with the startup. (This will not work on an Intel Mac. There is no Open Firmware on Intel Macs. )
  • If your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button.

Disc drive wont open. i pressed the eject button on my keyboard but it makes a clunk sounds but wont open.


This wil show you how to take it apart if that becomes necessary. But try this instead. First hold the eject button down for 5 seconds. I that fails look for a tiny hole near the disc slot. Use a straightened paper clip and push it in the hole firmly. This should eject the disc. Another option is to use firmware to eject the disc. Follow these directions: To eject a disc with Open Firmware commands, follow these steps:
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. Immediately after the startup sound, press and hold the key combination Command-Option-O-F.
    Note: The Command key has the Apple and (commandkeysymbol.gif) icons on it.
  3. Release the keys when you see a white screen that says "Welcome to Open Firmware."
  4. At the prompt, type: eject cd
  5. Press Return, then wait a few seconds. The disc drive should eject any disc that is present, and "ok" appears behind your command when the action is complete.
  6. Type: mac-boot
  7. Press Return.
  8. Your computer should now start up normally.

Powers on , wont boot and cant insert a disc to get it to boot.


To eject an optical disc at startup, hold down the mouse key on a wired mouse immediately after turning the iMac on with the power button. Keep it held down until the disc ejects, which should occur within two minutes. If you hear the disc trying to eject but failing, it is physically jammed in the drive and will have to be removed by a professional technician.

Force Remove a DVD


Hello,
Try to eject a disc using the eject icon in the "Devices" section of your Mac "Sidebar" or using the eject key on your Mac keyboard. If the disc refuses to unmount and eject, move on to Step 2.
Navigate in an open Finder window to "Applications/Utilities" and double-click "Disc Utilities" to launch the application
In the list of available discs, on the left-hand side of the "Disc Utilities" application window, select the mounted CD or DVD2_bing.gif with a single-click.
On the top of the "Disc Utilities" window, single-click the "Unmount" button. Your disc will unmount and be ejected.
Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

The container that hold my dvd disk wont come out when I press the open button on my apple computer?


It may be stuck so what you can try are one of these options:

Option# 1
* Shutdown your iMac G4
* Before you turn on your iMac, hold down your mouse button(s).
* Turn your iMac on still holding the mouse button(s) down.
* You will need to keep holding, until your disc ejects as your iMac starts up. That should do it.

Option# 2
If it does not, try using the Terminal utility to attempt to eject the disc.

* Click anywhere on the blank space of your desktop
and then you should see Finder appear near the Apple menu icon located in the upper left corner of your screen.

* Now from the Finder menu, select Go > Utilities.
* Within the Utilities folder. locate the Terminal application and launch it.
* When the screen prompt appears, type:
drutil tray eject

Option# 3
If that does not work, you can also try ejecting the cd using Open Firmware:

* Restart your Mac and hold these keys:
* Hold Command, Option, O and F keys while booting up.

* Now type: eject cd

To exit the open firmware screen type: mac-boot

One of these 3 methods should eject your disc.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
If not, you may have a genuinely stuck CD in your drive and may need to take your iMac in to your local Apple retail store Genius bar or local Apple-authorized service center to have it safely and correctly removed.

Honestly, however, I have this same type of iMacG4- you will probably have the cd out by Option # 2 :)

A CD or DVD disc can become stuck in your Macintosh. It may not be appearing on your desktop or could be causing the computer to lock up if the computer cannot recognize it properly.
