    What to do if my DVD got stuck in the drive of my Mac machine?

    Recently I faced this issue in my Mac where I am not able to eject my DVD disc from the drive, Why this is happening? Is it a problem with the Mac hardware? Can you tell me how to remove the disc safely?

    firstly Insert a small piece of thin battery pack cardboard just above the disc and twisted the cardboard a little so the disk canít spin when starting up. Now turn on the computer and hold down the track pad button. You should hear the sound of the optical drive inside, not the spinning sound but rather sound of something moving ever so slightly.You should only hear this a couple of times and then the DVD should come out, and then your computer should boot the operating system.

    No Dear...

    Its not the problem of your Mac Hardware.
    Its a problem with your DVD writer which gets too old and creates this problem because its lens gets too old.
    Try to replace your DVD writer and put a new one on behalf of that.
    It will definitely sort your problem.

    Thanks

    Hello Dear...

    This is the problem of your DVD in which its internal sockets gets damage by the passage of time.
    Try to put a black or used DVD in your DVD drive always which help you to eject your drive easily every time.
    Even I am doing the same for my DVD Drive.

    All the Best

    Dear friend,
    I think the problem is releated with the DVD drive you change with the DVD drive.I think the DVD drive has become old because of which it is not supporting your mac.

    thanks dear.

    * You could not eject your dvd from the drive easily...!

    * This is because of the DVD which you are inserting ....!

    * It is not a hardware problem....!

    * Please do not use any DVD with scratches or cracks or slightly damaged ones...!

    * This might cause the DVD to get hold on to the drive and does not come out easily and wont properly...!

    * Try with a new DVD ...

    * Even after that the problem persists, do not try to repair by yourself..!

    * Take it to the nearest customer care service center .. They would help you and repair it...!

    :-) :-)

    It is not so big problm also it is nit a problm of your computer hardware or software.. It is problem of your dvd writer. If you want to take out your stuck dvd than first of all took out your dvd writer from your mac machine. Than take out stuck dvd and repair your dvd writer and put it inti your mac machine your problm will be solved.Best of luck.

    Hello Guest..

    Yes, it is the problem of your Mac Hardware.
    When the disc gets too old then it doesn't take the disk properly and stuck.
    This happens when the lens got damage and the CD runs faster more than its normal speed.
    So i think you should replace the disc drive and buy a new disc drive of SONY.
    This cost you around Rs,1000 only.


    Hope this helps you,
    Thank you..

    Hi ,

    It might be the problem of your MAC hardware i.e DVD writer , this type of problem is occured mainly

    when you use the DVD' s which are having Scratches , they might get stuck inside and the failure of the

    DVD drive may occur , the lenses inside them gets damaged . in case replace your old DVD drive with the

    new DVD drive or get it repaired at the nearest store .

    Hello Friend,

    Just Follow Some Steps Are :


    >> Restart Your System

    >> Than Press The Eject Button Of DVD Writer Only One Time

    >> Than They Takes Few Mins And Eject Automatically But Wait Few Mins.

    >> Than Again Restart The System

    And That Is Happened When We Have Open Many Task Related To DVD Writer And Give The Instruction For Ejecting, Inserting Means When We Have Press Button Many Times Than They Got The Instruction So They Take Max Time.

    I Hope That Info Is Usefully

    Dear Friend...

    This is not the problem of your system, hardware.
    it is the problem in your DVD Drive.
    It is because when were used DVD drive from so long, so its pushing device IC gets week and week and due to this, it is unable to Open Dvd Drive.

    The only option for you is to replace the DVD Drive or buy a external DVD writer.
    that's it.

    Thank you...

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say.................................

    1.When you leave your DVD drive for long time without using this will happen.

    2.Or this can be the problem of the DVD drivers too.

    3.So you try to perform Restore in your Mac using Time Machine.

    4.If still you have the problem then it is the problem of the hardware.

    5.So now you have to get it repaired to fix this problem.

    I hope by doing as i said you can solve you problem.

    All the best....................................
