    I wasn't concentrating , trying to do too many things at once, and mistakenly inserted a cd into the drive of my iMac back to front . Now it is jammed, any ideas how to eject it ? I've tried everything that works on jammed cd's when inserted the correct way around. Thanks

    To eject the disc.

    1) Hold down the mouse during boot, or
    2) Hold down the trackpad button during boot, or
    3) Hold down the Media Eject key (⏏) during boot, or
    4) Hold down the F12 key during boot

    All these 4 methods are the Apple official method, and the mouse method always works for me, but you may need a wired mouses or keyboard.
