    I’m trying to install Reason on my G3 Powerbook. The program has 3 installation CDs. when it asks me to put in the next disc I get stuck because i can't eject the first disc...I can't even get to the cd icon to eject the cd. I’ve tried pushing the open button on the drive and that doesn’t work either. Any tips on ejecting a cd during installation to put the next cd in the drive so the installation will continue?

    Press the eject button for a few seconds. Is on the upper right hand side.

    The F12 key should function as an eject key in System X for keyboards that don't have a dedicated eject button.

    If all else fails just use the most useful tool you'll ever find for a mac.....an unbent paperclip. :)
