It is a common problem in Macbooks and Mac desktops when a CD or DVD disc fails to eject properly. The only solution to fix this problem is to restart the Mac, also many users are annoyed by the fact that Snow Leopard has a broken function Eject function key.
DiskEject is a small utility that can force a CD/DVD disc to eject without having to restart the system. It is a powerful utility that can eject the CD/DVD disc in just under 3 seconds and works where other similar apps have failed before.
Just open DiskEject or drag&drop a stuck CD/DVD on the app and the disc will be out. Please note that it can only eject those disc which are not in use. Useful in certain cases where the disc gets stuck after watching a movie, etc.
It works on Mac OS X 10.4, 10.5(Leopard), and 10.6(Snow Leopard).
