Mac ejecting CDs

My mac keep on ejecting CDs just today, is it the software problem or the lenses need cleaning? It wouldn't eject a CD the other day (it's a software I'm trying to get on my mac, but it just won't install and won't let me stop to eject it either).

    no, it eject even the one that worked on it just fine months ago.  I tried using my music CD (which worked last time I put it in), but it still spit the CD out like all the other CDs I tried after it spit my ms office CD out.

    Same problem. My Macbook keeps ejecting everything. It's fairly new but I was hesitant to buy a Mac in the first place.

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.

Cd in macbook wont ejec


This can be a problem. First try rebooting the machine, and holding the eject button when you hear the startup tone. Hopefully, that will force-eject it.
If that doesn't work, you'll need to get creative. Get a playing card or something similar, and put some rolled-over tape on one side close to the edge, so there's a sticky side out. Turn the computer off, and try to get the playing card into the CD drive, with the tape making contact with the stuck CD. Reboot, holding the eject button when you hear the eject button again, and pulling the card out. Hopefully, the CD will come out with the card. If it doesn't work, just keep trying, and you'll get it out eventually.
Generally what causes this is keeping CDs in the computer for an extended period of time, especially while the computer is powered off. Make sure you remove all CDs before moving or turning off your computer.

I have put a mini Cd into my Mac book and the computer hasnt recognised it and I dont know how to eject it? Kay


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.

CD Eject failure - Inserted blank cd to record songs, system would not recognized cd and will not eject. Continues to spin.


Switch off the computer.
Then restart it holding down the mouse click. Keep holding it down until the CD pops out.
If that doesn't work turn the computer off again then restart it and immediately hold down the CD eject button. Keep holding until the CD comes out.
If that doesn't work, take it to a service cenre.

PowerBook G4 won't eject cd by any means found on apple support


If you can hear that it's trying, it might be getting pinched while trying to eject, especially if something pressed down on the case at that spot. Try gently widening the opening with a flat head screwdriver while you are ejecting the CD. just put the driver in and twist a bit to widen the slot. Also, check to make sure that the fuzzy stuff that brushes off the disk when you insert it - and keeps out dust - hasn't been damaged. If it is partially missing, the missing part may be inside, keeping the CD from ejecting.

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.

Audio CD problelm


The CDs are being ejected as most likely the drive cannot focus correctly.  It is most certain that the drive will need to be swapped out and replaced at an apple service centre.
