    iBook G4 Stuck CD...need help ASAP
    I ask this on behalf of my uncle, who needs this drive fixed by the evening...

    He's got a CD-ROM stuck in his slot-loading CD drive (without a paper clip eject button). The drive clicks and the computer literally shakes around when he holds down eject.

    I've had luck in the past with a business card on top of the disc but it's not working for him.

    He can't take this to a technician because he's leaving on assignment tomorrow and needs the laptop. I can't help him in person either because I live 800 miles away (and probably can't get a cheap flight within the next six hours).

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated...please try to get these to me by 3PM.

    Turn on the computer while holding down the click button, that normally works for me.

    Thin piece of plastic with double sided tape usually works a charm.
