    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:


      1. Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the

          left mouse button until the disc ejects.


      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:


            /usr/bin/drutil eject


    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.

    In that case, probably you won't be able to eject your discs. However, try opening Terminal and type: drutil eject


    If it doesn't work, press the mouse or trackpad while your Mac is starting to force the DVDs to eject. If it doesn't work, take the computer to an Apple Store or reseller to get your SuperDrive replaced
