Do you think I could have hurt my drive? Or it must be a coincidence? Mac people, please let me know the changes I broke my computer!
Use the Mac's Boot Manager to Eject a Stuck CD/DVD
The business card trick did it! The credit card trick totally worked. More like MacBook Ghetto. Thanks, my lovely daughter stuck a plastic coin in the optical drive, but by using Terminal and a plastic knife we got it out and saved me a trip to the apple store. Restarting and holding down the track pad got my old cd out! I tried everything and that did the trick! Thank you!!!!! Used the business card trick to insert, press down so it stops — well, macbook pro sucked in my business card, too. So keep a good grip on that. But restarted with trackpad pressed down and cd popped out enough to be grabbed with tiny tweezers or alternative tools.
So I guess the bcard in there was enough to jar it loose or even it out or whatever. The card is stuck in there now, but everything runs fine. Screw it. Wake the computer after it has gone to sleep. When I put the Mac to sleep in Step 2 and then did the wakeup, I could hear the SuperDrive starting up and trying to access the disk. So frustrating! I tried everything but nothing worked until I stuck a small piece of cardboard in the drive to stop the disc from spinning, then held down the power button to force shut down.
Pressed the power button again to start up while holding down the trackpad button and the disc popped out! Such a relief and thanks for the tip. Worked like a charm.
The ONLY thing that worked for me-after weeks of trying-laminated business card slightly pushed down-then terminal and voila. I fought with this stuck DVD and the color-wheel of death for 45 mins! But still…. Rebooted with the trackpad pressed, CD slot down and a gental shake produced the wayward CD! Thanks so much! The DVD stuck for almost an hour, could not force anything to quit, tried everything in panic, and finally, in the 2nd try to reboot and held down the trackpad of my MacBook Pro, it worked!

How to Eject a Stuck CD or DVD From Your Mac
Gently inserted it into the drive. Wobbled it about a little for it to stick then gently pulled it out!! Thanks all….. Thanks soooooo much for the cellotape idea. I had this situation 1 hour ago. After From there on, repeat 5 a few times until you can grab it by the fingers. Overall, the problem is a design one: the rubber shield is WAY to hard to allow some CDs to be pushed through by the drive engine! No wonder that engine cannot eject a CD!!

I think if it all fails just let it be and eventually it will come out. Mine just started up and ejected the CD after 3 weeks of being jammed… I almost cried…. I popped an old music cd in my Macbook Pro and it locked up in my drive. It would not come out for anything and also prevented my mbp from booting up after I restarted. The drive would just spin and spin. Nothing worked in terms of holding down different keys.
After seeing your write I stuck a gift card in the drive on top of the disk and held down the track pad for like 30 seconds and whaa laah…the dam disk ejected! Thank you so much for this. The first suggestion worked like a dream. I shall be bookmarking this page in case it happens again. I inserted a mini disk by accident in the disk drive and it is stuck. All the options above did not work because the disk probably went on a side and it is stuck. Any ideas? Thank you for any help.
Do not try to put credit cards and knives and anything else into the drive!!! The business card was a great idea. Took a few tries with terminal, but finally worked. No more DVDs for this Mac. The last option while using the terminal worked for me after hours of trying and trying and trying everything I could find on the internet. BTW u need to stick the credit card all the way in for it to work..
The terminal solution worked like a charm and I had the benefit of making me feel like a real Geek. You saved me forcing a teaser in there to force it out or using thin plastic with sticky tape on it — because your first suggestion worked. Thanks so much, my disc has been stuck a few days now.
Method 1 – Try Ejecting from Within Windows
I tried the thin cardboard a bookmark actually and it worked, when nothing else did. I stopped the disc from spinning, did a force shut down. Thanks again and Bless the Lord Jesus Christ. I really got panicked as i loaded a disk with a plastic cd cover…I did the card and use eyebrows pliers to help out it seems to have worked. Thank you……. I understand that if the CD is stuck you have to get it out somehow, but yikes! Next time, if possible, try this:.
If 4 fails try the eject key. Or, if that fails, eject from disk utility under the utilities menu. I know this is a post from a while, but are you still bumhurt? The credit card worked for me today like a charm. Cheers mate!
