I bought a Mac OSX 10.6.3 Snow Leopard CD (Family Pack) to upgrade on my Macbook Pro, but it won't boot. There are sound like it was running but it reject in the end. My Macbook Pro is Intel Core Duo 2GHz with 2GB Ram. It is currently running OSX 10.5.8.†I tried the disc on other Macbook running 10.6.6 purchased 2-3 years ago and it work. So I don't really know what happen with mine. My DVD drive work fine though.
I got West Wing stuck in my computer. I'm on an Intel Macbook (No Open Firmware >_<)I've tried:
1. Using a credit card to keep the CD from spinning.
2. Ejecting the CD in every program I can think of.
3. Going into Terminal and entering the eject command.
Whenever I boot up my computer, it takes about 20 minutes before my computer gives up on trying to eject the CD. I've tried pretty much everything. I'm trying to avoid taking this to the Genius Bar if possible. I'm a college kid and as such can't really afford to lose my computer for them to fix it. Anyone have any other suggestions? (i.e. is there a manual eject that anyone wants to suggest? Or anything else?)
my iMac ejects blank discs when I try to burn music in Tunes or when I insert a music CD to play it.The disc spins around for about 15 seconds, then it gets ejected. I made sure the surface of the discs were clean and that I was burning from a "playlist," all to no avail. I was successful at playing a movie in iDVD, though, so I'm baffled.

My first post and am gutted to say I have a tech problem! I put a cd-rom into my iMac the other day and it didn't mount (ie no little disc symbol on the screen) and I can't eject it. I can hear the disc drive constantly trying to read the disc and then trying to eject it. It is as if the disc is slightly blocked as it tries to eject but then gives up and sucks it back into the drive and tries (unsuccessfully) to read it.any ideas anyone? I am a techno-plonker so please offer advice in simple terms!!
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.
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¬†

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!
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?
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.
I used boot camp assistant to create a partition and install windows xp, but my cd key isn't working so I need to eject the disc. However, since my macbook keeps booting to the windows install program i have no option to eject the disc, does anyone know a way to hard-eject the disc?
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.
my mid-'09 whitebook has a dvd in it that will not eject. there's no disc image on the desktop and i can't eject from the dvd player either... i've tried shutting down and booting up, and restarting this is my first issue with this computer so i'm pretty worriedis there any way i can force it to eject?
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.

I have problems with the CD player. It does not work. It does not eject the disc. The system does not see the CD player as it does not exist. On my IMac I have installed the program Parallels desktop 7 with Mac programs than even Windows 7. Even under windows I can not see the CD / DVD. What can I do. To remove the CD every time I have to restart the machine.
I have an iBook G4 933 and recently inserted a DVD that I was going to put on my ipod. It opened DVD but I quit cuz I was going to Handbrake it later. I got sidetracked and never did anything with the movie. I eventually shut down my computer and noticed the next day there was a disc in my computer but not on the desktop. I continousley clicked eject with nothing happening. I restarted my computer a few times trying holding "c" or ejct with no success so does anyone know how I can get the disc out.
