give these a shot.. it may or may not work.. seeing as these tips are meant to eject a DVD/CD and not a mini cd..

OMG GUYS.....


WOW total luck.

I picked up my MBP, and tipped it- just for the heck of it, and the CD stuck out a little, so I tipped it a little more, and presto! Out came the CD!!!!


So if that ever happens, tip your MBP

Thanks for the suggestions though!

YOu guys are always wonderful, and helpful!

Well it didnt help, because the CD never caught..... it was pretty much just "floating" in there
