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.

Will not recognise cd


Is it ejecting any other CDs as it sounds as if the CD has not been finalised properly. If it has been supplied from someone other than yourself ask them to finalise the CD.

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.

A cd is stuck in my macbook.


The same thing happens to me all the time.
Ok so, you have the cd in ur laptop. Restart your laptop and hold the "eject" key until it comes back to your desktop. If your computer cant restart, hold down the power button till its off then turn it on again and hold the eject button. And hopefully it will come out.

Hope I helped

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:
eject cd

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.
Type:
mac-boot

Press Return.

Your computer starts up normally and you see the familiar Mac OS X desktop.

Mini cd stuck in my macbook


You can try this:
  1. Restart your Mac.
  2. After you hear the startup chime, press and hold your trackpad button.

  3. After a minute or so, and you think nothing is gonna happen, the disc ejects.
  4. Release the button once the disc ejects.
