    Push the eject button or for Apple

    Ejecting a CD or DVD when all else fails

    If you've tried all the usual methods of ejecting a CD or DVD from your computer's optical drive, there are some other methods you can try.

    First, quit all applications that are using files on the disc. Then try one of these alternate methods:

    Open Disk Utility (in the Utilities folder of your Applications folder), select the disc, and choose File > Eject.
    Choose Apple menu > Restart and hold down the mouse or trackpad button until the disc ejects.
    If your drive has an emergency eject hole, put the computer to sleep and insert a large, straightened paper clip in the small emergency eject hole of the drive (the location varies, depending on the drive). Push firmly until the disc ejects.
    If all other methods fail, you can try to eject the disk using the firmware. (This may not work on all computers. For example, it does not work on Intel-based computers.) The steps below describe how to start up and briefly use the computer with only the firmware loaded, not the standard Mac OS X interface.
    To eject a disc using firmware:
    Restart the computer.
    When you hear the startup sound, press and hold the Command-Option-O-F keys. (The Command key has an Apple on it.)
    Release the keys when you see a white welcome screen.
    At the prompt, type:
    eject cd

    Press Return, then wait a few seconds. The disc drive should eject the disc, and "ok" appears on the screen when the action is complete.
    Type:
    mac-boot

    Press Return.
