    force eject disc?
    is there a way to eject the disc on the mini mac, besides using the os?

    I mean what if the OS crashes, and I have a disc in the would I get it out?

    Turn the machine on, press and hold the left mouse button. That should force an eject during EFI initialization without the OS.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    on a standard key board use f12 key. There is also an eject icon in a file on your mac that you can add to the top of your desktop. I can't recall the file it is in but you can type EJECT ICON into the search here and you should find it.

    You should be able to stick a pin into the side of the slot-loader, and eject the disc, or go into Open Firmware

    Boot Up Your Mac
    Hold Down Alt, Command , O, F
    When ready type " eject cd "
