Is there any way to manually eject a disc from a slot drive, on the macbook.
Don't think so. If it's stuck in try rebooting whilst holding the trackpad button whilst it boots, it should eject it.
i don't own a macbook but there's no eject key? on my ibook g4 it's F12.
what if one can't restart, Installing vista it says eject the first disc and put in the second, well the first one won't eject...
I got the same problem when installing Media Centre on my Mac - CD 2 of XP is the Media Centre capabilities and had to click cancel and it left out all the media stuff (which suited me better anyway!).
I tried everything to get the CD out and none worked
I have had this same problem on my mac. Take a paper clip and make it long ways and stick it in the cd slot and the Cd should pop out.
What kind of Mac was it? I'm not so sure the MBP's optical drive has that magic button.
As far as I can see, MBP doesn't have any visible eject button round the drive.
And I'd feel a bit weary about poking a paper clip into my optical drive.
Thats exactly why Boot Camp specifically says that install discs need to be only 1 CD. It's not capable of letting you swap discs mid install.
The way to solve the problem is by holding down the mouse button while restarting.
