    I have a Mac Pro Tower 2009 Computer and I loaded a disk into the tray. Yes I can't eject the disk and it those not show up. I have tried the drutil eject in Terminal and no joy. My finder has frozen and I get the beach ball on my desktop. Been at it looking all afternoon. Any Help?????

    Another method for opening the drive tray:
    Restart, while holding the (left) mouse button. The tray will slide out after a short delay (usually after the screen lights up). Should also eject if you simply hold the eject key on your keyboard.
    If your keyboard does NOT have an identified eject key, then holding the f12 key should also function as an eject key.

    Thank you for that fast reply. I think your information is among what I did.....Shut computer down, Restarted and held the option key and as soon as i heard the start up sound, released option key and pressed the eject key and it popped out.
    Always grateful for advice. It becomes very frustrating when one does not have the knowledge.:)
