Hi,
Okay, here are ALL your options, easiest first.
1. Boot up with the eject button pressed (top right-hand on the keyboard)
2. Boot up with the left-hand mouse/trackpad button held down
3. The firmware eject (a bit more serious) Boot up with Command, Option, O and F buttons held down. Type eject-cd and the cd will pop out. Type mac-boot and you are rock and rolling
4. From the boys at Rent-A-Nerd... http://web.me.com/alexthenerd/Rent-A-Nerd_(UK)/TopTips/Entries/2008/6/25_Useful_Trick_No.2_%3A%3A__Ejecting_a_Disk_Thats_Stuck_In_A_Slot_Drive.html
Not for the faint-hearted.

To eject a CD from a Macintosh, start from power-off. Press the power button, and immediately hold down the trackpad button. Continue to hold the button until you hear the optical drive eject, or try to eject. If the CD does not eject successfully, then it is physically stuck, which is a different issue and requires professional service, which may involve replacement of the optical drive.

Burned a CD and it will not eject. The CD is in my 17" PowerBook G4, but does not populate on my desktop. It's as if the computer does not recognize the CD at all.


If you restart your Mac, holding down the mouse button while it is starting, will eject any cd or dvd. Once the disc ejects just release the mouse button and the computer continues it's startup procedure.

Can't eject Install CD Mac OSX Panther


Hi GInette, sorry to hear you are having problems,
here is how you eject a disk that is stuck in the optical drive of a Mac.
Shut down the Mac.
press the power on button
VERY QUICKLY, press the mouse button, the trackpad button and hold it down firmly until the disk ejects.
This is a built-in hardware command independent of your system and always works when doe right, unless the optical drive is no longer recognized by the Mac or if something is inhibiting it's ejection.
Good luck

Cd stuck in drive


you can eject manually. There's a very small hole on the front of your CD drive. Get something like a needle. put the needle inside that hole and push. Your CD should pop out.

Mac ejecting CDs


Is it ejecting just this particular disk? If so, it is a format the Mac doesn't recognize or the disk is damaged and the Mac can't register it.
