Using a Mac - Ejecting a CD/DVD --------------------------------------------------------------------- There are a number of methods you can follow to eject a CD or DVD from your Mac.? This tutorial will cover the numerous ways you can eject a CD or DVD in case a disc gets stuck in the drive bay.? The first method of ejecting involved clicking and dragging the disc icon to the Trash icon in the Dock. You'll see an Eject symbol where the Trash is supposed to be. Let go of the mouse when the disc icon is hovered over the Eject symbol. If that doesn't work, you can also press the Eject button on your keyboard. It is located above the Delete key and to the right of the Increase Volume key (or F12). If that doesn't work, press and hold Command+E. If none of those work, try opening iTunes. Sometimes the disc will appear under Library in the toolbar on the left side. There will be a small Eject icon next to it that you can click. If that doesn't work, navigate to the top menu bar of your Finder and click Go -- Utilities. Open Disk Utility. Click Eject either at the top or the bottom and the disc should come out. Finally, if none of those methods works, try restarting your computer. While the computer is restarting (white screen with Apple image) press and hold the Eject button on your keyboard (above Delete, to the right of F12). DO NOT under ANY circumstances try using tweezers, pliers or any other foreign tools or objects to remove a disc from the drive. Read more by visiting our page at:
