Ejecting a Disk that won't eject -- MacBook

There are two things to do in this situation.

There are two hard ways and one easy thing.

The two hard ways are using a paperclip or terminal. You can use Terminal to quit any processes that are using your disk which replicates a system restart allowing your disk to eject. On the other hand you could just stick a paperclip into the proper part of a disk drive but why not do the easy way first?

On startup hold down the mouse button or the trackpad when you hear the sound play until the disk comes out. This is generally no longer than 15 seconds.

So, next time your disk drive won't eject restart and hold down the mouse button.
