    I accidentally put the transparent disc (the one that comes with the blank CD-Rs) in my iBook and the iBook ofcourse doesn't recognize it so it's like it's not even in there, but the drive is still locked (I can't attempt to shove a disc into the slot), but it wont eject it. I need the machine to eject even though it doesn't recognize the disc.

    P.S. I did copy the format of the title macbook thread lol.

    Try rebooting and hold down the mouse button before and during the grey screen with the Apple logo on it.

    See the MacBook thread :D

    BTW: Short of having to boot you can also type ' drutil eject ' into the terminal and hit enter. :)
