    Hey guys,

    I have a 20" Alu imac, bought September 2008.

    A week ago I've been watching a movie with my girlfriend, and the CD suddenly got stuck. Now at first I tried to get it out by poking around in there with a credit card (yes, idiot I know) and I'm afraid my drive might be slightly damaged. Is there any way the iMac can scan if the drive if functioning 100% as intended?

    Thanks in advance!

    Try rebooting the machine, and holding down the eject button on the keyboard or the mouse button. If this doesn't eject the CD or DVD, then it's time to head to your nearest Genius Bar or Apple authorized repair shop.
