Today I was working on a project where I had a table of 14 iMacs which were in various stages of disrepair. It was a fun task because I am totally NOT a Mac person. Some of them wouldn’t turn on at all, others would only show a white screen, and others would give frowny faces or question marks. However, a running theme along these systems was once I put a CD into the drive, it refused to return it. I tried booting while holding option, I tried pushing the eject button on the keyboard, but neither of those are going to do anything if the computer and the keyboard aren’t communicating. And the majority of time, the system would recognize the keyboard, but still ignore my requests to eject the disc.
Why, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, does Apple consistently make computers without a hard button to eject CDs???
