    I stupidly inserted a small scan disc (from a Canon power-shot camera) in the CD slot on my iMac 27" desktop rather than the smaller slot directly below!
    How can I safely remove it?
    The eject button does nothing & turning the screen right-side down & gently shaking it hasn't worked.

    A pair of tweezers should do the trick. You could also replicate some tweezers with a couple of pieces of thin wire or something.

    Tweezers & wire both fit in the slot but I couldn't find/feel anything!

    After reading several threads, I gently shook it again & then pressed the eject button while it was right side down and it popped out!

    How clever you are! I was able to shake mine out yesterday. Thanks though, for the next time I forget. I hope I didn't damage my iMac.
