    hey i just put in a audio cd (holy bible on audio cd) but it got stuck in the macbook. When i tried to eject the CD is not responding or ejecting. Basically i'm stuck with the cd in there. I've tried to shut down the computer and turning it on again, but nothing.

    Anybody out there that can help????

    thank you

    Restart while holding the mouse button on the MB.

    Restart your MacBook. As soon as the screen turns off (right before the gray screen appears and it makes the "bong" sound) press the mouse button/trackpad. Hold it until the CD ejects.

    Future Reference

    As a future reference... before resorting to the restarting/mouse button trick, try the Disk Utility (Applications > Utilities) to override the keyboard hotkey (eject). If this does not work than it's really stuck (do the restart trick then).
