Question about Apple Power Mac G5 Desktop
My dvd is stuck in the tray (Mac G5). It does not respond to the Eject key / F12 key (tried two different keyboards as well). Also tried inserting straightened paper clip into small hole next to tray with no results.
There are many ways to eject a DVD. Try this.
Shut down the computer (complete power off, not restart)
Hold down the left button (Apple mouse?)
Push the power button
Keep holding the mouse button down until it either ejects or the grey pinwheel appears. (It's not an instant process)
Usually, eject/F12 will open the drive up. If that does not work try. Open terminal and use the command "drutil tray eject"
You can also try command-option O + F and type"eject cd" If none of this works your drive may be bad or the power cord is loose. You will need to open it up or seek professional service.
