Question about Apple iBook G4 Mac Notebook
That's quite a problem! Generally the slot-loaded superdisk drive will prevent you from jamming a second in there so this could be a tricky operation depending on how far in you got the 2nd disk.
If it's ALL the way in it will definitely be easier for you to take it to a professional to disassemble your laptop to get to the drive and THEN disassemble to drive to allow the disk to be removed.
If it's only partially in I would highly recommend the following method of removal:
1) power off your laptop, remove the battery and unplug it. 2) using a couple pieces of paper towel or a thin towel and a pair of 5-8" pliers pinch the CD that is partially exposed between the towel. Make sure you get a firm grip on the 2 layers of towel and the cd, if it slips, reduce the number of sheets or thickness of the towel. Ideally we'll remove the disk without damaging it. 3) Once you can get a good grip that doesn't slip put your laptop on the edge of a counter or desk, place a hardcover boot on top and grip the book, laptop, and table with one hand (the book will help prevent damage to your screen) and the pliers holding the towel and CD in the other and pull the pliers away from the laptop. Hopefully it will pop out easily or with just minor resistance. 4) if you get too much resistance you might have the CD stuck on the spindle that goes into the hole of the cd, so if it doesn't budge at all I'd say a stop at a professional computer repair office is again in order.
I hope this helps! Please reply back with any further issues!
