Obviously, I did not read the instruction booklet before I attempted this, but it never occurred to me that the computer would not accept a mini-CD. So, now that it is in there, what to do? I read on another forum that somebody used a paperclip to get one out, but I think the CD is in too far for that and the paperclip would damage the computer as well as the CD, which I'd like to salvage since it contains a lot of good info. Has anybody successfully managed to dislodge one of these before? My computer is fairly new, Thanksgiving time is when I bought it. Will the Apple store help me with this, or am I on my own? Suggestions appreciated.
