    I was importing a cd into my itunes. When I was done the cd would not eject.
    I have been trouble shooting for hours and have done the following....
    Eject button on keyboard
    Eject Button in itunes
    drag disk to trash
    start computer and hold mouse down.
    I have also gone in disk utilities.

    I am beyond angry at this point. Can anyone please help me get this disk out?

    Reset SMC and PRAM. It could very likely be a hardware issue though, at this point.

    What type of machine is this?

    The cd is not coming out still. It just restarts itunes. Taking it to the genius bar in the am. Honestly it is bull ****. I see from my google search that this is a common problem, so why does Apple not fix it?????? Thanks for the help. Hopefully Apple takes care of this.

    Slot drives work on very tight tolerances, and occasionally fail.

    It may be that many people are temporarily unable to get the drive to eject due to a software problem, but a genuinely defective drive is rare unless it has been damaged due to improper disks being inserted.
