Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

CD won't eject. I've restarted and tried all the fixes recommended by MAC forums and so far no luck. Any other ideas?

\015 CD refuses to come out of Mini MAC. I've tried all the recommended fixes and so far nothing has worked. Before I take it to a MAC store, any other good suggestions? I'd appreciate it!\015\012\015\012Lorraine\015

Answers :

If it is just the computer that isn't ejecting the disk (and not a physically "stuck" DVD) there is a way to force eject.
\015\012Go to Apple menu > Restart and hold down your mouse button until the disk ejects.
\015\012Or you can try the firmware method...
\015\012If all other methods fail, you can try to eject the disk using the\015\012firmware (this may not work on all computers). To use this method,\015\012start up and briefly use the computer with only the firmware loaded,\015\012not the standard Mac OS X interface.
\015\012To eject a disc using firmware:
\015\012Restart the computer.
\015\012When you hear the startup sound, press and hold the Command-Option-O-F keys. (The Command key has an Apple on it.)
\015\012Release the keys when you see a white welcome screen.
\015\012At the prompt, type:
\015\012eject cd
\015\012Press Return, then wait a few seconds. The disc drive should eject the\015\012disc, and "ok" appears on the screen when the action is complete.
\015\012Press Return.
\015\012Your computer starts up normally and you see the familiar Mac OS X desktop.
