CD won't eject. I've restarted and tried all the fixes recommended by MAC forums and so far no luck. Any other ideas?
If it is just the computer that isn't ejecting the disk (and not a physically "stuck" DVD) there is a way to force eject.
Go to Apple menu > Restart and hold down your mouse button until the disk ejects.
Or you can try the firmware method...
If all other methods fail, you can try to eject the disk using the
firmware (this may not work on all computers). To use this method,
start up and briefly use the computer with only the firmware loaded,
not the standard Mac OS X interface.
To eject a disc using firmware:
Restart the computer.
When you hear the startup sound, press and hold the Command-Option-O-F keys. (The Command key has an Apple on it.)
Release the keys when you see a white welcome screen.
At the prompt, type:
Press Return, then wait a few seconds. The disc drive should eject the
disc, and "ok" appears on the screen when the action is complete.
Your computer starts up normally and you see the familiar Mac OS X desktop.
