Remove a stuck CD or DVD from a slot loading drive
Authored by: iangoldby on Jun 05, '08 12:20:29PM

A much more gentle method that has always worked for me:

Balance the laptop on its edge, i.e. with the side of the screen and the side of the keyboard resting on the desk and leave it like that to cool for a while. (I find CDs get stuck only when the laptop is fairly hot.) Then press eject with it still in this vertical orientation.
