Disc stuck in dead powerbook g4
 
Hi,
My powerbooks battery is completly dead and the ac adapter isn't working. I have a disc that is in the powerbook that I would really like to get out. Is there a way I can do this with no power?
Thanks in advance

Depends on what model PowerBook, always helps ig you provide model details and OS, but try the old paper clip trick for starters or remove the optical drive from the machine:-

Ejecting a disc from the PowerBook G4 disc drive

I'm going to guess that your ac adapter & battery didn't go dead at exactly the same time...probably should have ejected that disk before this happened. Without any power at all...you're probably left the the "mechanical" removal suggestions Harry recommended.

Alternately...maybe you can find someone with a similar adapter to borrow...or if that disk is valuable enough...purchase a working used adapter.
