If You have a iBook G3 (white) or iBook G3 (clamshell):
If you can’t eject a CD or DVD or open the
optical drive tray:
Make sure the disc is not in use.
Quit all applications that are using files on the disc.
Then press the Media Eject ( ) key at the top-right corner of
the keyboard.
If that doesn’t work, hold down the function (fn) key and press
the Media Eject key.
If that doesn’t work, drag the disc’s icon to the Trash.
If that doesn’t work, restart the computer, then hold down the mouse
button. To restart, choose Restart from the Apple (K) menu.
If the disc still won’t eject, eject it manually:
Carefully insert the end of a straightened paper clip into the
emergency eject hole on the drive tray.
