    Hi Guys,
    This is the first time I've encountered this after 4 years. Can't seem to eject the cd from the drive. I tried using the F12 eject key and the apple + E keys but to no avail. I also tried shutting down the laptop then ejecting the cd but that doesn't work either. I'm afraid I might need to change my (Powerbook G4's 7rpm 400mhz) internal cd/dvd drive.
    In that case, I need your advice on how to change the cd/dvd drive and what is the best brand that's in the market now. I'm opting for buying a cd/dvd r/rw.
    Thanks heap,

    Two more things to try before tearing your computer apart:

    Boot while holding down the mouse or trackpad button (wait for up to a minute after booting before giving up)

    Boot into open firmware (hold down command, option, O and F) and at the prompt type
    eject cd
    -- again, wait a minute or so before giving up.
