CD Stuck in Your Slot Loading Apple Computer?

There is a way to get it back. When I bought my Powerbook and had my first experience with a slot loading CD/DVD drive, I was forced to face the harsh reality of having to trust the computer to give it back. Should it not give it back to you once you hit eject, here is the solution.

  1. Click on the Apple icon on the top left of the menu bar
  2. Click Restart
  3. Once you click restart, click and hold the mouse button. (For notebooks, make sure to click the mouse button instead of holding your finger on the track pad if you have clicking enabled through the track pad).
  4. Continue to hold the mouse button down through the restart process. You might find the computer hangs a little on the gray screen but that’s ok, keep holding.
  5. Before the computer loads the home screen, it will eject the disc, and there ya go.

Make sure to inspect the disc for scratches or dust before putting it back in.
