Before I gave it to them I cleared everything off the computer and I left the install DVD
That is a no no. Why did you do that? Reason why......
Tried to eject the disc a million and a half times and nothing was working.
How? Did you try the suggestions mentioned in the article Troubleshooting the slot-loading SuperDrive?
and then it brought up a page that said Install MAC OS X , but then said you cannot start up from this disk...
Did you give your friend the discs that originally came with the computer? Which os version was on the computer when you sold it?
I forgot to take out the Install DVD disk. I cleared everything off the computer so non of my data would be on there?
I gave both discs that came with it from when I purchased the computer.
One I believe is the applications cd, and the other is some sort of Install DVD, not really sure which one is which at the moment.
I have no idea which version it is. Ill have to check. But yes I tried to obviously press the eject disk, command-e, eject button on the menubar..
Then at one point we had to unmount the disk to try and eject it.
It gave me an option to eject the cd or to erase it.
I obviously chose to try and eject it.
Nothing happened. It's as if the CD is just stuck in there and is unable to be read.
