Eject a stuck CD/DVD from a MacBook Pro SuperDrive
Authored by: yangzone on Mar 30, '09 10:34:50AM

I had a DVD stuck in a MBP 2.53. (It did not interfere with boot up.) Anytime I tried to Play or Eject it I got error: -70012. I Restarted, no fix, Restarted from an external drive and ran Diskwarrior, no fix.

But online I noticed a post where someone had a similar problem and Shut Down and Started up again (rather than Restart, he/she had already tried) and succeeded in fixing the problem. So I tried this, and, sure enough, the disk mounted and all was normal again.

[I make the mistake of thinking Restart = Shut Down + Startup]
