How to Get a Stuck CD Out of a Mac

If you have a Mac computer and a CD or DVD is stuck inside, you may be wondering how to get it out. Sometimes, clicking the eject button just doesn’t work. But don’t worry, there’s an easy trick to getting that disc out of your Mac.

First, restart your computer by clicking on the Apple icon in the upper left corner. Once your computer restarts, hold down the mouse button. Keep it pressed until the disc ejects from your machine. It’s important not to let go of the button until the disc is out.

If you have a disc stuck at startup, when you hear the little startup chime in your Mac, click and hold the mouse button. Keep it clicked until the disc pops up. This trick works on all Macs, old or new.

Sometimes, a disc won’t eject because it’s being used by a piece of software. Restarting and holding the mouse button will force it to eject, even if it’s still in use.

So, if you’re having trouble getting a disc out of your Mac, try this easy fix. And if you have any other common questions or error messages you’d like us to address in a future video, let us know. We’re here to help make your computer fixes easy.
