Thread: MBP won't spit out DVD
10-11-2006, 10:31 AM #1MBP won't spit out DVD
My MBP won't spit out the (new) DVD I put in. The movie is not in English, this is irrelevant but the reason I quit DVD player so I could watch something else.
I have quid DVD player several times and ejected all 3 methods I know how yet it doesn't eject, it makes a soft crunching sound, I can hear it reving up and it starts playing the menu page again.
As you can imagine this is most fustrating, I have shut down and re-started but it makes no difference.
Is this yet another glitch on an otherwise very good laptop?

This happened to me a couple of times. The first time, I just ended up leaving it for a day, turned it on, pushed eject and it finally came out. Second time it took 20 minutes - I did other stuff and every now and then tapped eject, came out eventually.
I noted that it only happened when I had the DVD in (btw, it was a different disc each time) while I had the MBP on my bed; ie. an uneven surface. A flick through the manual reveals that it is recommended to keep the MBP on a flat, level surface when using discs. That's the only advice I can give, apart from to keep trying. Suffice to say I haven't had the problem since I read this.
