    Try restarting holding c, as if to start from a system disk. The mac should recognize it's not and spit it out. Maybe :)

    If its the (now old old) imac - i.e. the white side slot loading then to be honest i wouldn't bother.

    A fellow designer got a disc stuck in hers at my previous place last year - we tried everything - then bizarly 4 months later it popped out by itself.

    Thinking it was working again - the Creative Director put the disc back in - and its probably still stuck in there now.

    Don't forget the old paper clip trick...

    if($dvd == 'stuck'){
        
    $twatWithHammer true;
      }
