Question about Apple iMac G3, G4 USB Keyboard 9224078
G3 Blueberry iMac with slot-loading CD rom drive will not eject the CD. The drive whirs and tries to eject but the CD will not come out. Holding the mouse button down does not work, no hole for a paperclip, normal eject will not work. Do I need to complete take apart the iMac in order to remove the CD? Thanks for any help.
It would be very difficult to open up the imac to retrieve the disc as the CD drive is totally enclosed and would probably result in it not be functional after removing the disk. Have a look at the following article on the apple website
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3007?viewlocale=en_US as it does indicate that the slot loading imac does have a hole for paperclip ejection. You could also try opening up disk utility and and clicking on the icon of your disk under the left hand column then go up to eject button and click eject. Hope this helps.
