  • DVD/CD stuck in my iMac - How do I get it out?

    Hey guys, I have a DVD or CD in my iMac and it will not come out. I have tried just about everything except for sticking something in during the startup to try and force eject it.

    Any help would be great!

    Try this,

    Hold down the left mouse button, then reboot while you are still holding it down. Once it is rebooted open up iDVD and try to burn something. Then try to enter the disc.

    Have you tried the whole disk utility, select CD/DVD drive, eject, method?

      I can't really help get it out, as I'm a PC guy, but if all else fails, just get an external burner and disc reader. It may not be the best solution, but it's an alternative to paying who knows how much to have the Apple people take apart your computer to get it out. Good luck!

          Holy **** Balls - How did you know there wasn't a disc in there???? It totally worked! Thank you, I was really stressing over that because it was holding my production back big time.
