    I was talking to my bro and didn't pay attention when i pushed a cd into the optical drive. That cd is smaller then the usual size, the kind of normally goes with the usb drive... now it stuck.... and i can't 'eject' since the disc is not even in that far... Could anyone help me on how to get it out???

    Thanks alot

    Reboot computer while holding down the primary mouse button from right when it reboots you hear the chime. That should make it come out

    First, as you discovered, never put a non-standard disc in a slot-loading drive. It's a great way to destroy the drive.

    Since it sounds like it's not in far enough to be caught by the drive mechanism, I would simply recommend shutting down your machine and then tilting it up and shaking it gently. Gravity should bring that bugger right out.

    Hopefully the mechanism hasnt jammed against the disc itself.
