    In case you're a new Macbook owner, I'll throw this out there since it puzzled me for a bit when I first got mine:

    If you use the eject button on the keyboard, you can't just tap the key. You have to hold it down for a second or so before the CD will eject. This is supposedly to prevent accidental ejections.

    Same here. When I first got mine I would push the button like 3-4 times.. Then I realized you gotta hold it. ;)

    Worked!!! Finally

    I OPENED "DISK UTILITY" Found the CD and Ejected it Immediately once i clicked on the blue Eject icon!!


    Bravo!!

    In fact I put it in once more... and it once again didn't recognize it, (nor was I able to eject it normally)...


    Just before my CD got stuck the first time, I was warned that "the burning process may have failed" or something of the sort...

    I believe my Mac didn't recognize it properly because it wasn't properly recorded in the first place.

    A Million Thanks!
