I think my disk drive got a little bent/crushed a couple months ago and CDs didn't go in or out very smoothly but up until the other day it still worked. I now have a CD that refuses to come out...everytime I turn my computer on or wake it up the disk starts spinning around but the disk never loads on my computer, and pressing the eject button doesn't do anything...is there a force eject button or something that might work?

Restart holding the mouse down, this should force eject it, if it won't come out you may need to dismantle it.

Try looking here:

Apple Portables: Troubleshooting the slot load optical disc drive

If this doesn't work, and the tip from Keriano doesn't work as well try doing the following:

Open /Applications/Utilities/Terminal

Type the following command and hit enter

drutil tray eject
