I have been yelling to Apple for years ever since they abandoned the tray drive for that stupid slot drive; the degree of mechanical complexity is too great for the space available, and slot drives have the poorest reliability of any Apple device! This is probably way too late for you, but on one end of the slot there is a little tab inside that can be pushed with a pin to eject a stuck CD. Failing that, ifixit.com is the best place to go to troubleshoot and repair Mac laptops. I have five vintage Mac laptops, some over 15 years old, with tray drives that still work fine, and ONE out of five newer Macs with that ridiculous slot drive still functioning because I already replaced it!
GARBAGE, Apple; are you listening?

Hold the eject button on your keyboard (upper right corner), while shutting down your mac.

If that doesnt work, hold the mouse button down while shutting down your mac.

Youll have to have the dvd rom replaced
sold on ebay for 30 or 40
then all the screws have to come out
there is a top panel to take out the cd that is stuck,
it wont show the rom on your computer due to the rom wearing out, must be replaced

Macbook A1181 black take the Snow Leopard DVD but wont boot from it. Ejecting it. (the drive is working) and pressing C dont force it to boot from the DVD.


When you start up your computer, hold down the option key. This will bring up the bootable devices menu. Depending on wether or not you have an Operating System installed, you should see either 1 or more icons. Click on the one with the CD icon that should be labeled "Snow Leopard". Once you have clicked on the icon, click the arrow beneath it and your Mac will boot off the OS CD.

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.

Hi, I m a new user of apple mac book, I m trying to insert a disk in my dvd rom but still i am not able to open my dvd player. Can u help me that how will be open the dvd rom in apple mac book? means any...


Hi,
I would please like to tell you there is no button in MACBOOK to eject a tray as there is no tray.
You simply see a line on the right hand side of your laptop where you can insert a disc, u need to insert a disc into that part and when you insert it you will show you an icon on your desktop showing you the cd contents.
When you want to eject it keep in mind u need to click on the icon on your desktop and press the eject button or u can also use the keyboard and press the eject button, which will bring the disc out automatically.
Please do not worry try it, I'am sure it will work for you.
If there would be any problem and you need any help please do not hesitate to ask.
I'am also giving you a link to see the video of how to insert and eject the cd, please note this is the old model of the macbook, the only difference is that the drive is now located in the right hand side of the laptop, dont worry take a look.

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.

Hi- I've just inserted a CD into my MacBook Pro


CD Stuck in Device
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.

A cd is stuck in my macbook.


The same thing happens to me all the time.
Ok so, you have the cd in ur laptop. Restart your laptop and hold the "eject" key until it comes back to your desktop. If your computer cant restart, hold down the power button till its off then turn it on again and hold the eject button. And hopefully it will come out.

Hope I helped

CD not coming out of my MacBook


Things I might try that you may or may not have tried already:
  1. Reboot and try to eject again.
  2. Reboot and hold down your mouse button during start up.
  3. Reboot and hold down your the eject button during start up.
If those don't work, check to see if your disk drive is warped in anyway. My old MacBook would only eject if I pried the slot open a little.

I hope you can get your disc out.
