Can't eject CD

Recommended Posts

Mac Pro Tower - 10.6.8.

I put in a CD with some Acrobat files on it. (The files won't open with an error message.)

Now I can't get the CD out of the machine with any of the normal methods, including ejecting it from Dik Utility. Any attempt to eject the CD locks up the machine, requiring a hard shutdown (holding in the power button).

At this point, it feels like I may have to disassemble the machine to get it out.

Any ideas?

Single user mode to eject the CD, perhaps?

Got the SOB. Holding down the (left) mouse during startup got it out.

I found a Terminal command to eject the CD, that didn't work:


That link also has a Single User mode command to eject it, but tried the mouse down move before trying the Terminal command.

And yea, I miss that little paperclip hole!
