    Trouble releasing cd from mac pro
    I have trouble releasing a cd from the cd-room in my mac pro after i spelt some soda on the table so it might have got some inside the cd room? When i press the eject button the cd tries to come out, but goes inside again after coming about 1mm out. i have tried to close all programs and press eject, then i tried to release it in terminal, then in disk tool, and then i tried to release it while restarting my mac, and still the same happens :/ Can anybody help me on how to get it out?

    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    Sorry to tell you real bad news, in fact in many cases liquid + electronics = death!

    Have a look at this link. If you have a mouse, connect it up, reboot and hold down the mouse key immediately after the chime. Good luck:-
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
