I shall be bookmarking this page in case it happens again. I inserted a mini disk by accident in the disk drive and it is stuck. All the options above did not work because the disk probably went on a side and it is stuck. Any ideas? Thank you for any help. Do not try to put credit cards and knives and anything else into the drive!!! The business card was a great idea. Took a few tries with terminal, but finally worked. No more DVDs for this Mac. The last option while using the terminal worked for me after hours of trying and trying and trying everything I could find on the internet.
BTW u need to stick the credit card all the way in for it to work.. The terminal solution worked like a charm and I had the benefit of making me feel like a real Geek. You saved me forcing a teaser in there to force it out or using thin plastic with sticky tape on it — because your first suggestion worked. Thanks so much, my disc has been stuck a few days now. I tried the thin cardboard a bookmark actually and it worked, when nothing else did.
I stopped the disc from spinning, did a force shut down. Thanks again and Bless the Lord Jesus Christ. I really got panicked as i loaded a disk with a plastic cd cover…I did the card and use eyebrows pliers to help out it seems to have worked. Thank you……. I understand that if the CD is stuck you have to get it out somehow, but yikes! Next time, if possible, try this:. If 4 fails try the eject key. Or, if that fails, eject from disk utility under the utilities menu. I know this is a post from a while, but are you still bumhurt? The credit card worked for me today like a charm. Cheers mate!

Rash says:. March 6, at pm. If the paperclip inserts more than cm your on the wrong edge. Also be careful to not angle the paperclip. I have the exact same laptop and I will say that I put a CD in one time and it simply never came out. Meaning the motor the ejects the cd is simply broken. Nothing would eject the cd.

I have another drive removed from another MBP with a disc in it, and without the fuzz in the way, I can peek in and the lever is not there. There are net may parts in a macbook. You could remove the dvd drive and get better access to the stuck media.
I already mentioned I had removed another drive from this model. It's a major proctalgia removing a whole bunch of other stuff that Apple chose to put in the way. And, since I did not say when or where I bought it, you don't know whether or not it is out of warranty. Maybe the idea from apple. I bought a new cd drive off ebay installed it Rebooted the Operating System. Tested it. Everything is jiffy. Remove the cd from the old drive I can't seem to find a guide to do this.
