    So Dark Side of the Moon is stuck in my drive and isn't coming out, I put it in and it ejects itself once, then I do it again and it recognizes the disc but won't import the tracks.
    I try to eject again and for about 30 minutes it makes the ejecting noise but won't come out so I turn off computer and when I turn it back on it recognizes the disc and all the tracks import correctly.
    But now everytime I try to eject the disc, it tries to eject it as many times as it feels like before just opening the disc up again in itunes. Then I try to eject again and it sounds like its about to and then reopens in itunes! It seems never ending.
    I am getting a headache from it can anyone help as I've looked around and can't see anyone with a problem like this!

    Turn off iMac, tip on side, slide out disk with the aid of a pair of tweezers.
