CD or DVD stuck in your Macbook or Macbook Pro or refusing to eject? Here’s a quick fix.
If you’ve got a CD or DVD that simply refuses to eject from your Apple computer, whether it’s an iMac, MacPro or Macbook there’s a simple solution.
To eject a stuck disc:
Press and hold your mouse or trackpad button during bootup
- Power down the device completely
- Press and hold your mouse button/trackpad button and keep it held down
- Press the power button to turn it back on while keeping mouse button down
- Keep holding the mouse/trackpad button and eventually the CD or DVD should eject itself and then the computer will continue to boot as normal.
NOTE: I’m not sure if this technique still works with wireless (Bluetooth) pointing devices such as the Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad but I will endeavour to test this later and update this post.
