    Hi

    My ibook G4 wont accept a CD. I have held down eject/F12 and nothing comes out. Usually it simply sucks in a CD when partially inserted?

    Has anyone else had problems?

    thanks

    This may sound stupid, but is there a disc in the drive already?

    if there is a cd in the drive you might be able to get it out by using open firmware simply:

    Hold down Cmd-Opt-O-F (during start up) then at the prompt type

    eject cd
    mac-boot

    or try holding the mouse button down during start up will force eject the cd.

    i have had once a stuck cd (did not eject at all not even the people at the genius bar could get it out) a service tech at the apple store replaced my combo drive with a new one.
