How do i eject two disks in disk drive


You could try something that sometimes works on MacBooks - leave the drive plugged in and restart the computer. As it boots up, hold the eject key down.

Stuck cd in a PowerBook G4


A few ways of doing this

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

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

or open up terminal found in the utilities folder within your applications folder and then type in
drutil tray eject and then press return

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.

One other way to do it which I have used recently but IT CAN BREAK THE CD DRIVE (Use it at your own risk), so only use it as a last resort. Get a thin piece of plastic 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 CD out.

Hope this helps.

My mac book has got a cd stuck in the disk drive, but the computer isn't registering it. i think its in upside down, and ji have tried all of the solutions form the help, but none of them...


You don't say which version of the Mac OS you're using, so I'll assume OS-X. Control-click the iTunes icon in the Dock, choose Force Quit, and then try ejecting the CD from the Finder or Disk Utility.

Or

Reboot and hold down the trackpad bar mouse button

My mac keeps ejecting any dvd i put in?


Because this could go in the way of a hardware issue or be an issue with the types of DVDs you are using (even legal and commercial copies), so I have three procedures below, I would suggest you try, in order to resolve your Macbook issue with auto-ejecting DVDs.

Procedure #1
-PRAM RESET-
The Parameter RAM Reset is a good troubleshooting process for working with various functions including refresh rate, screen resolutions, and DVD region issues to name a few.

Steps:
• First, shut your Macbook down properly
• Once your Mac is shutdown, locate the following keys on the keyboard:
Command, Option, P, and R.

You will need to hold those keys down simultaneously .

• Now turn on the Macbook.
• Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys.

• You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.

• Now, hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the start up sound for the third time.
• Release the keys and allow the Macbook to start up.
Run the next procedure (below) from within your Mac OS X Desktop.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
font.f1 {font: 13.0px Myriad Pro} Procedure # 2

-RUN DISK UTILITY -

Go to Finder Menu bar
• Click Go > Utilities > Disk Utility and open up Disk Utility app.
• Click on Macintosh HD volume (or on the name you have changed this volume to.)
• Select "Repair Disk Permissions"
**Let Disk Utility run this repair permissions until completion

Once Disk Utility is complete and there are no errors in red in the completion summary, quit Disk Utility.

Proceed to the last procedure.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Procedure #3:
Check this Apple support page for Macbooks and make sure your Macbook is update on its firmware and SMC updates:
Apple Macbook Support page
------------------------------------------------------------------
•Now try a few types of DVDs, commercial, burned and blank DVDs and if you have different brands of blank DVDs make sure to try them as well.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Apple has done it best, by providing a great support page, that I would like to provide you as a final troubleshooting support option:

Apple Support Link:
Troubleshooting the slot load optical disc drive
You have your work cut out for you, but not to worry, follow these procedures listed in this post and in the links I have provided and you will have an answer as to if the issue with the DVDs auto-eject from your Macbook, is a hardware, software or DVD disc issue.

Regards,

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.

Cannot eject flash drives. Closed all apps and tried Disk Utilities.


How did you try to eject the disc?
Drag it to the trash or Command E or put away?
You may need to repair your permissions on your main hard drive.
