iMac G5 CD stuck - what could cause it?
Hi- Thanks to this forum I found a way to get a stuck CD out by getting in to the Firmware.
What worries me, is why it did it in the first place and that it could be a precursor to a mechanical problem withe the drive.
It was a music CD with a 'click here for OSX' for a an extra video that did it.
Could it just be a dodgy CD, or could it be the the drive on the way out?

You could restart with the mouse button held down.
Maybe the click for Mac OS X software is crap and hangs in the system in a kind of limbo knowing it needs the CD but not being able to report why.
Well gentlemen, a great deal of money has been invested in this project...
...and we can't allow it to fail.
