How to eject CD/DVD from your MacBook or iMac

If a CD/DVD gets stuck in your MacBook, this is what you do to get it out.

1. drutils eject

Start the Terminal applications (Applications > Utilities > Terminal). Run this:

  drutils eject

If that fails, try the next command.

2. disktool

First, find the device name of your DVD drive.
