    Specs:
    13'' Macbook w/ 2Ghz Core Duo, 2GB DDR2, 250GB HD, 10.5.4. iPod Touch.
    Stuck CDs
    I'm going through several CDs at the office now and many are old and somewhat scratched. Is there anyway to force a cd ejection without restarting the machine and holding the mouse button?

    i think there is a hole you can put a paperclip in and it will pop the cd out.
