    I have a Macbook mid 2007 model.

    A DVD is struck inside this Macbook. It plays the movie perfectly but I just cannot eject it. I searched all the Mac forums and tried everything there is available but I just cannot eject this DVD.

    I spoke with a technician and he said he has to open the entire machine and then only he can remove the struck DVD. I don't want that to be done as he may inadvertently damage the machine.

    I don't mind the DVD to be permanently struck. The DVD itself is an animation cartoon movie and it is not important for me to retrieve it. I want to know if leaving the DVD in the machine permanently can cause any harm to the computer. Also I want to know if it will affect the battery consumption or the speed and performance in the laptop.

    Regards,

    Abdul Shaikh

    Have you tried opening disk utility, clicking on the optical drive and pressing force eject?
