Stuck CD in PowerBookPaul, · Categories: Amusements, General
I have Johnny Cash forever! Or so it seems. I went to digitize American Recordings III and the CD stuck in my PowerBook G4. Using the various eject procedures results in a tiny edge of the CD peeking at me for a fraction of
a second then disappearing. On the upside, I can listen to “I won’t back down” anytime I want too.
Is there an easy way for me to get the damn thing to eject — or should I head out to the “genius bar”?
Things I’ve tried:
drag cd to wastebasket
pressing eject botton
holding function and pressing eject button
rebooting with trackpad button held down
I believe that the cd is experiencing some kind of resistance and so backs itself back into the player.
AHA! UPDATE: I took a key and gently but firmly nudged the slot a little larger or upward. (aka the caveman method of computer repair). The disk ejected just as if things were normal.
