Five ways to eject a stuck CD or DVD from the optical drive
Ejecting the stuck disc can usually be done in one of the following ways:

2. Press the Eject button on your keyboard.
3. Click on the Eject button in the menubar.
4. Press COMMAND-E.
5. If none of the above work try this:
Open the Terminal application in your Utilities folder. At the prompt enter or paste the following:
If this fails then try this:
Boot the computer into single-user mode. At the prompt enter the same command as used above. To restart the computer enter "reboot" at the prompt without quotes.
Cappy, thanks so much. I know this information will be valuable to me at some point down the line, but I'm not getting anything on my screen but the "what language do you want to use?" black box of the Install DVD. The menu bar isn't there, so I don't have the options. I think the Install program is actually running somehow. Should I be on another forum for this problem when I look at it from this perspective? Thank you. kate
