Thanks to a striking visual design and an attractive price point, the MacBook laptop computer has been successful in convincing many PC users to try a Mac. Although Mac and Windows-based computers have many things in common, a PC user is also likely to find a few surprising differences. For example, there is no eject button on the MacBook's optical drive. There are several ways to remove a disc from a MacBook and these methods will become second nature more quickly than you may expect.
Press the "Eject" key on the keyboard. This key has an icon with a solid up-facing triangle and a line below it. It is usually located in the upper-right corner of the keyboard. If this does not cause the disc to eject, continue to Step 2.
Click the CD-shaped icon on the desktop. Drag it to the trash can icon on the dock (usually on the bottom of the screen) and drop it. If this does not cause the disc to eject, continue to Step 3.
Click the Apple logo in the upper-left corner of the screen, and shut the computer down. Hold down the touchpad button at the bottom of the laptop while you turn the computer back on. This will force the computer to eject the disc.
- If none of the methods in this article are successful in removing a disc from your MacBook, the disc may be stuck. If this is the case, and your computer is under warranty, contact Apple for further assistance. Attempting to pry the disc from the drive may cause damage and void your warranty.
