For anyone reading this thread as I did in the same situation.

I'd highly recommend taking into an apple store. They sorted it out so quickly and for free. It took a couple of days to get an appointment but once there it was so simple.

Before that I tried lots of methods I read about online. Inserting other CD's, cards, card with sticky sided cellotape, putting it upside down, lots of turning it on and off etc. Even thought about tweezers etc. Wasted loads of time with no success and also was very worried that my not successful, getting more and more frustrated, efforts had done it more damage.

I took it into the shop. They got it out in 2 mins. No charge. No damage done.

I just got a mini disk stuck in my Mac Book Pro Laptop. I applied a piece of double sided Scotch Tape to half the length of a flat toothpick, inserted it into the CD Rom opening just enough to be able to press down on top of the CD and was able to pull it out.

Old Thread BUT very useful.
I only tried the second option and it really worked!!!

Probably the reason why it works on the Wii is that it was built to be backwards compatible. It also has springs to keep the disc in place if I remember rightly.
