Problem:A CD or DVD got stuck in my MacBook and refuses to eject when I drag the CD icon on the desktop to the Trash folder. How do I eject it?
If a CD/DVD gets stuck in your MacBook or iMac, this is what you do to get it out.
1. drutils eject
Start the Terminal applications (Applications > Utilities > Terminal)
If that fails, try the next command.
First, find the device name of your DVD drive.
disktool -lIt should show something like this:
disktool -e disk0s1s2
Reboot and hold trackpad
If those fail, reboot your MacBook. As it boots up, press and keep pressing the touchpad.
If you're using an iMac, press and keep pressing the mouse button.
It will eject the CD/DVD automatically.
