"Found that if you turn the machine off, lay it on its face, restart it, and then press the eject button the CD ejects no problem. Shut it down again, stand it back up, and don't put that brand of CD in again."

That's not good and a huge pain....

Odd that they didn't offer any indication why these disk were a problem.

As much as I don't think I'll ever enconter the need for using OneDisks, this is certainly a curiosity of a problem.

Perhaps Ives should have designed the thing with a little handle on the side, like those manual eject levers you get on toasters ..... actually praps not.

Very weird that one certain brand AND COLOR of disc will hit the edge, while other discs will not.

I've had trouble (including ejecting) with Memorex Ultra Speed (16x-24x) CD-RW media in my 1.25GHz eMac. Other (re)writable CD and DVD media has worked fine.
