This afternoon, I bought a Sandisk MP3 player. I put the mini-CD that came with it into the disc slot, and it got stuck in there. How do I eject it?

Hrrm, thats not going to be easy since the DVD drive doesn't have the ejecting mechanism to eject mini-cds.

Shutdown the Mac!
*Carefully* tip the Mac so that the DVD drive is facing downward, and firmly but carefully shake it till you can grab the cd and pull it out.

Also, when it is your computer is booting, after the first chime, press and hold the left mouse button. Gravity and force boot will most likely get it out.

Good luck!
