Hi all,

So I searched for this topic in the forum and came up empty handed. Anyway, I need some help last night I loaded a DVD into my Macbook Pro not realizing it was a Blue Ray disc. The optical drive spun for hours trying to read the disc, but cannot yet it keeps trying. I have tried to eject the disc using the eject button on the keyboard, but to no avail. I shut the computer down and tired rebooting hoping I could eject the disc during boot-up... This was probably a bad idea as the computer hangs on the gray screen and continues work on reading the disc. All I want to do is eject the disc. Any thoughts???

If it helps, I'm running OS 10.5

Thanks

Hi and welcome to M-F

Reboot again and hold down the mouse/trackpad button until it ejects ...
