    Burned dvd with Toast on 24" imac, disk doesn't eject, it Shows on desktop, can even open files on it, it doesnt show in sidebar. have tried all the eject methods listed on here in previous threads, including terminal command, the credit card use, etc. The drive makes sounds likes its ejecting but doesnt.
    Have replaced drive with a new external superdrive, but still have stuck disk showing on desktop. Really don't want to resort to opening up the case to get it out, is there some other way, like using tweezers to pull it?
    thanks, ric

    Did you hold down the left mouse button while booting up? That worked for me when nothing else would.

    I hate that my iMac doesn't let me use blank discs, they just get stuck in there and I can't burn to them.
