I have a (legal) movie DVD stuck in the DVD slot of my MacBookPro and connot get it out. I have pressed the Eject button on the keyboard, Option+E, started up holding down the mouse pad button, run the Terminal program with "drutil eject" command, checked there is nothing blocking the slot to prevent the disk coming out, etc, etc. Nothing works. I can hear the disk is spinning but instead of ejecting it launches the DVD player program and asks if I want to watch the movie. Please help
My original request was posted some time ago now and I need to get this issue resolved urgently. Can you please notify me asap whether or not you will be able to provide a solution? Otherwise I shall have to cancel my request for assistance and take the laptop to an Apple repair centre.
Apologies for taking so long to respond but your reply was quarantined and then diverted to my "junk" email box so I only received it today.
I have tried your suggersted solution without success. Any more ideas?
