    basically I was burning a disc via a Burn Folder, and at 40% got the error message: 0x8002006E. The disc ejected, but I reinserted it.
    Now it won't recognised the disc - not icon appears on the desktop - and I can't eject it either.
    I've tried a couple of 'tricks', such has rebooting and holding the mouse button/C, and using the eject function in iTunes and in Disk Utility. Nothing works.
    However, in Disk Utility the disc is recognised with the DVD-ROM.
    When I try to eject it makes the right sounds - like the disc is being prepared to be ejected, but doesn't pop out.
    The DVD-ROM has been acting up for a while but this is a first (before it just made worrying noises when reading discs).
    Am I going to have to take it in for repair/replacement? Any ideas?

    I wish I had an answer for you. I can offer validation, though. I have an iMac with nearly identical specs, and as we speak, mine is trying to eject a dvd I just put in. It read just fine when I inserted it, but when I decided I was done and clicked eject, it made all the right sounds, and nothing is happening.

    I hope someone has an answer of some kind . . . although this seems to be a hardware issue, not a software one. :(

    (P.S.) The drive just began playing the disc again. I wish it wasn't something I'll never watch! lol)

    My MacBook Pro isn't ejecting a DVD, I inserted it and it said it was blank, which it wasn't. So it asked what to do, I pressed eject because clearly something was wrong. Now it won't eject. It isn't making any noises when I press eject, and also it isn't showing in the Finder. I tried logging in and out and also restarting but it still is like this. Please help me out if you figured a solution to this. I also made a thread about mine, but no replies yet.
