    May Mac Pro ( Early 2008 ) optical try won't open. either with eject key or command E. or if there was a CD, dragging to trash.
    It will open however if I restart and in the few minute after it start up I can eject it normally. so it's not mechanically stuck or anything. It's been like this for a couple years already. Through out all the OS updates the problem still persist. No running 10.10.5
    Any wizard out there?
    Thanks

    i had this problem a while back and performed an SMC reset (power down, unplug power cord, hold power button for 10 seconds, plug back in and fire up) and it solved for me. worth a try.
