there's a cd in the drive which refuses to mount. or eject, using the reboot/mouse down trick, or the eject key.
there's no pinhole for the manual eject (thanks apple)
i've tried the /System/Library/CoreServices/Men... Extras "eject.menu" fix - no joy
and the cunts at the so-called genius bar have no appointments at all. none. at any london store. fucking apple.
any of you guys know any tricks?
have you tried to eject it thru itunes?
i had a look but couldnt see how. i tried disk utility but the cd hasn't mounted so the machine thinks there's nothing to eject
my 2007 mac pro had an eject button. was hard to reach but it was there, on quick glance I dont see one on my 2009 mac pro though, what year is yours?
thx but i got this helpful message

perhaps the disk is loaded because it is not all the pushed in, have you tried to insert another disk, like as to push the stuck disk into its place to load?
did you try the Option key to get to the Startup Manager screen, then using the Eject key on the keyboard at that screen?
drutil tray eject
in terminal window
Did you boot into Safe Mode and/or hold Eject during startup?
thx all but none of that worked. finally got thru to applew support and they're sending a crack team (yeah riiiiight) to pick it up and trash it

Five ways to eject a stuck CD or DVD from the optical drive
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:
If this fails then try this:
Boot the computer into Single-user Mode http://support.apple.com/kb/HT14… At the prompt enter the same command as used above. To restart the computer enter "reboot" at the prompt without quotes.
Ir just unfold a paperclip,make a small hook at the end and fish it out
Maybe it's not connected to the internal mechanism... Try putting your computer up on end, cd drive facing down, and shaking the CD out. Or try sucking it out with a shop vac.
are you sure there's a cd in the drive?
