First question: Does the iMac take mini cds? Mine ate my little CD. So I poked another CD against it to pop it out and it ate that CD too. No matter how many times I hit eject it doesn't eject.

Second question: How the heck do I get my CDs out of there

I think pregnancy is about as weird as it gets. Shooting DNA at each other so some little parasite can grow inside one of your organs.

Don't put mini cd's in a slot load drive, the arm that is used to push out a normal sized CD will never be able to push out a mini CD.
There is an eject button on most Apple keyboards or drag the CD to the trash or right click and eject (control click if you use a 1 button mouse).

Yeah, the eject on the keyboard doesn't work and then there's no CD icon that pops up on the desktop. I'm afraid to turn it over and shake it because I don't wanna rattle anything loose. I've poked around best I could with stuff but I'm afraid I'm going to ruin something in there. I'm probably just gonna have to buy an external CD drive.

You have to hold down the eject on the keyboard for at least 2 seconds, but still I doubt it will eject. Turn it carefully sideways and shake it gently.

I could sit on the eject key and it still won't eject. I'll try the shake I guess...good thing I have insurance.

Well, shaking doesn't work. It's actually lodged in there. I guess I could take it back to Fry's for repair
