    here's a daft problem that's started on my imac g5

    when you eject a disc instead of coming part ways out

    and remaining sticking out - the discs go flying out the side

    onto the floor.

    a mere detail you may say but dead annoying anybody

    know a cure to prevent me breaking my neck trying to catch

    them as they go flying across the room

    kind regards:(

    I bet it's annoying.

    It's basically the cloth type thing in there that holds the disk.

    flying discs


    yeh its gettin more and more annoying

    its one of these things that you wonder whether its in worth getting uptight
    about, because its a little / massive thing. it really is gettin to me now.

    no applecare (sadly)

    its like a nylon/cloth skirt thats supposed to hold it in and probably only
    apple could fix it

    You could buy a dog and hope it's good at catching frisbees. You know how they leap in the air and catch them in their mouths?

    That would be cool! :cool:

    Just hold your hand out about 5 inches from the computer and let it "jump" into your hand.

    Sure, it might sting for a second or two, but at least you won't break your neck.

    Have any enemies? Aim your slot loading drive towards people you don't like and EJECT! Don't forget to sharpen the outer edge of the CD before, though, and aim for the jugular.
