MacBook :: Eject Disc That Does Not Appear In Finder?

Jun 14, 2012

I put a CD into my Mac that spun and spun but never registered in the Finder or anywhere else, but now I can't eject it.  Is there a physical way to do that like there is on a PC?

OS X :: Eject Button Missing In Finder - Unable To Eject Cd

Feb 22, 2009

i've had a Macbook for a couple years and I have some knowledge of OS X but this one has stumped me.My friend called me tonight and she told me on her new iMac that in the finder window, after clicking on Macintosh HD, the eject button was missing that should be next to the device.This apparently happened earlier today with a CD and happened when she called me with an External HDD.

She was however able to eject the stuff by either dragging it to the trash or doing "Open Apple" + E, key shortcut. I'm stumped on this because she was till able to eject the HDD or CD with the previous methods but the Finder, "eject" button for the devices was missing.

MacBook :: How Can I Eject A Disc That Is In Use, Like A CD-ROM

Mar 30, 2010

I just got a new CD-ROM to help me learn sign language. I put in the first CD and to access certain material I have to insert another CD. I can't eject the first one when the window is up on the screen. When I do eject it the window closes and the second disc doesn't work. Any help would be appreciated. There HAS to be a way to override this. I just want to be able to eject the first disc without having to quit everything.

MacBook Pro :: Unreadable Disc Won't Eject?

May 12, 2012

Really annoyed with the fact that this disc is proving difficult to eject. The laptop is not reading the dvd, therefore the usuall methods of ejecting a disc hasn't worked, e.g. pressing the eject button and moving the disc icon to the trash. I have tried the disk utilty application as well, still, the laptop does not recognise that there is a disc inserted! 

I have tried other methods that I have read including reebooting and holding the trackpad, repeating that process with a credit card and also that didn't work. The laptop does make an effort to eject the dvd, as the ussual nioses are made, although the sound made don't sound too good. I also tried the terminal programme which resulted in the same noises but the dvd still remains stuck. 

One thing I havent tried is to take it to a store or specialist but I would like to try remove it myself first as going to a store is a hassle!!! is there any other way that i havent tried

MacBook Pro :: Late 2007 Won't Eject OSX Disc?

Jan 18, 2010

I tried installing Snow Leopard on my Late 2007 MBP with the installation disk I got with my 2009 MBP but I figured out that it wouldn't work because the installation disc would only work on the new machine not the old one. Anyway, now when I boot, I get the usual installation guide but the disk won't eject. I went to Disk Utility-->Eject Disk but it gave me a warning message that it couldn't be ejected because some applications were being used. I have no idea what that means and why it wouldn't eject the disc!

MacBook Pro :: Disc Stuck - Eject Doesn't Work

Jan 4, 2010

My Superdrive was making a funny noise, so I quickly ejected my game disc so It wouldn't ruin it. A few minutes later, I had to burn a DVD, so I put in a blank DVD, and tried to burn my iDVD project to it. iDVD kept telling me to put a disc in. I hit eject, and nothing happened. I went to my desktop, and noticed that "Blank DVD" was not present. So, I have a disc stuck in my MBP, and my Mac doesn't think there is a disc in there, so eject doesn't work. What do I do? Should I just bring it in the Apple Store?

MacBook :: Dropped Macbook - How Can I Eject A Disc From A System

May 29, 2009

a dog got himself wrapped up in the power lead and sadly the magnet didn't do it's thing and the Macbook hit the (concrete) deck.I was pretty concerned as I have lost a couple fo HDs in the past I think due to this cause when the HD arm wasn't parked.Well the Macbook still works, and I hope it continues to do so.When I wake it up though, it makes that sound like ejecting (or drawing in?) a CD. Then seems OK.

PowerPC :: Powerbook G4: Can't Eject Disc

Apr 7, 2009

I loaded a CD-Rom with some pictures from our kids photo session and it never showed up on the desktop. Now I try to use the eject button and nothing happens. Is there a way to "Force eject" or some equivalent? Odd thing is that when I open iDVD it says that my computer is not equipped with a superdrive. So it sounds as though my drive is not working.

OS X V10.4 :: Why Does Install Disc Eject Instead Of Mount

Feb 11, 2012

My G4 tower has needed occasional disc utility repairs but this time there's something strange.The disc won't mount, instead after the normal time for the disc to mount, the disc is ejected.  I've restarted the computer while the disc was being read, and held down the "c" key, and the computer ends up with a question mark folder flashing on the screen. I can put the disc into my G4 laptop and read it fine.  It also looks to have no marks or scratches.  The G4 tower can read other discs including the OS9 install and repair disc.  There is OS9 installed in the tower and not on the laptop.

G4 Quicksilver Tower, Mac OS 9.2.x, MOTU PCI interface card installed.

OS X :: Kernel Panic And Disc Eject - Cannot Log Into System?

May 11, 2009

I got the kernel panc recently and I rebooted and it went away for a few days. so yesterday I put a few modest mouse CDs on my iTunes and on the second to last I e I accidently pulled it out at an angle making the cd bend(not sure if this is relevant) and I put in tv next one, and after downlaoding it, it wouldn't eject. it would b remved from my desk top and iTunes list but wouldn't comeout. it would make the noises as if it would. so then I got the kernel panic again and I rebooted and it would make the noise and go to the white screen and tv man the noise again and then restart again and again and again. each time it would try to eject but it won't. it'll spin the disc the try to eject and I'll hear a few soft clicks or taps afterwords. I tryed logging on in safe boot and that worked for about 10 minutes but then got the kernel panic. no I can't log in any way. this is a pretty new iMac and I did nothing to harm it!
