Hi there,

Try these steps to force eject a CD from your Mac:

  • Restart your computer, and hold down the mouse button. If you have a 2 button mouse, hold down the left click.
  • If your computer has an eject key on the keyboard, restart the computer again, this time holding the eject key.
  • Open a Terminal window and type in: drutil tray eject

That should do it for you!

Happy New Years!

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
