    I've got an Intel Mac Mini

    I tried loading program from a CD.It wouldn't load now it won't eject.
    i've tried everything in the help menu for eject disc

    1.re-starting

    2.re-start hold down:
    mouse button
    return

    3.hold down F12 key

    4.app>util>terminal
    type command> drutil eject....doesn't work

    5.typecommand> drutil list
    gave me the list but command> eject ......didn't work
    now typing drutil list doesn't give me even the list anymore...???


    6.Finder>file>eject> (grayed out)
    Disk utility CD rom isn't present


    7.System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras and double-clicking the file "Eject.menu"....nothing

    as far as I can tell MM doesn't recog CD at all.It spins on start up then stops

    out of ideas and growing tired of searching .....:(

    Behind the felt of the DVD drive on the left side is the manual eject button. Try that.

    Try Disk Utility in Your Applications Folder-->Utilities.. Usually works for me.

    oh nevermind, said that you tried that..

    I had to triple check I was on the MAC MINI forum.There is no PINHOLE on a mini ..(unless it's small as a pin and I can't see it....;)
