Mac eats DVD - any ideas on how to remove it?
OK - I have a Mac on the network, just one, shiny, posh looking machine which has taken up proportionately more of my time than any other bit of kit that I can think of.
This one is an iMac desktop and is now maybe 18 months old. Most recently it decided to keep hold of a blank DVD that was inserted into the narrow, designer 'cool', slot on the side (yup - the one with no pin hole emergency eject thingy)
So here I am, tried all the 'fixes' I can find on the www but still with the DVD in there and the eject mechanism clicking away all the time.
So - questions - any body fixed this without tearing the machine apart to get at the drive internally (and looking at the guides that seems to be a big job)?
Does the Mac have some software way of disabling the DVD drive so that it stops clicking and whirring??
