stuck cd how do I take the cover off
CD won't come out when I eject. You can actually hear it trying. I can not figure how to take the cover off so I can try to get the CD out.
First restart holding down the mouse button, that failing try:
Restart the computer while holding down Command-Option-O-F, to enter the Open Firmware prompt. Type "eject cd" without the quotes, and press return. The disk should eject." If this fails then look at doing surgery.
Or similarly, reboot while holding down the mouse clicker. Again, though, as Mayer said, "if this fails then look at doing surgery".
Note that opening a Mac Mini is quite a bit tricky the first time. But the paint scraper shim does work.
