    Since theres no physical eject button and the computer doesnt think I inserted a disc, how the hell do I eject it? When I hit the eject button on the upper right corner it just says No Disc

    When CDs are completely unrecognized the easiest way I know to eject them is to restart the computer and hold down your left/only mouse button.

    When the computer is starting up, if the mouse button is held it will try to force eject anything in the CD drive without trying to read it. I have never had this fail unless the CD was physically stuck.

    this trick doesn't work with bluetooth mouse does it? I mean since the bluetooth item first connects when the OS is booted up.

    if you have a keyboard with an eject button, holding that down will force eject the disc on startup as well.
