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.

Eject mini cd from macbook


The only to get a mini CD out of your optical drive is to physically remove it from the drive. This means you will have to take the computer apart and then take the optical drive apart to remove the mini 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.

My macbook isnt reading any discs.


There seems to be a problem with the superdrives in the MacBooks. I had mine replaced under extended warranty last month. If your Mac is under warranty, bring it in to the Apple store.
Several macbook users in the past have had success with their optical drive reading disks by turning the laptop upside down and then inserting the chosen CD. Might as well give that a try in your situation.

Drives are available online. Let me know if you need instructions on how to r/r the drive.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
