I've been putting some music in my itunes from cd's today and the last cd I put in the drive won't eject. Is there a way to manually eject a disk?

(1) Launch (Applications-->Utilities) and type

drutil tray eject

then press return


(2) Restart your Mac and hold down the mouse/trackpad button until the disc is ejected.

There are a few ways to eject a disk. On the desktop, right click it and choose eject. I've had a similar problem. Restart the computer and try again. That's what I did. Restarts solve everything, it seems.

After searching around I found a way. I still don't know why it was stuck in the first place though.
