    Restart while holding your mouse down (clicking).

    You are a life saver!
    Popped right out.

    Do you think its a faulty drive?

    And why would it pop out under those circumstances and not during normal operatio.

    If I am using a PC mouse do I need to hold down both buttons?

    Didn't seem to work for me.

    No, just the left button while restarting. You need to click restart then hold the left button before it starts to restart.

    I didnt use my mouse as well, i held down the button the track pad.


    I think I might need to take this to the Apple store. I keep having to restart it to get it to eject any dvds.

    You'd be surprised how much can be repaired by a simple permission fix. I know from experience.
    Try it, It cant hurt.
