DiscEject is a small but useful utility for Mac OS X that ejects the stuck CDs and DVDs. Is very fast and simple, and is successful when other methods fail.

DiscEject, if no application uses the problematic disc, physically and safely ejects the disc in a few seconds.

If you find DiscEject useful, consider making a donation on our homepage.

I haven't used for a stuck disc in the main optical drive and as I suspect that what's its aim so I refrain from giving stars.

The let down for me was that it doesn't work with all connected drives in the system. such as firewire target mode connected drives, that usually do show up in the system. I tried the Advanced version also.
But this app is probably useful for drives connected directly.

Did not work in my case; DVD drive makes appropriate preparation noises but then goes silent and the Finder pops up the usual "You inserted a blank DVD. Choose an action..."

Granted, I already tried ejecting during restart without success, so it isn't really a surprise that software isn't fixing what is likely a hardware issue. Next stop: Genius Bar.

Really Nice app I used this app and it did what it said. But I would like a GUI like what forceject has.

Before you write negative reviews read the instructions, please. DiscEject is not a visible running application: it just ejects stuck discs (non on remote disc drives). Insert a disc and double click it: you'll see that it works. After the ejecting is done, DiscEject quits in background.

Sorry turners out I didn;t even have a stuck disk in my Mac at all, I go confused whether I did pu in a disk or not, because I was going through every CD I have on ripping whatever music and movies that I don't have on my Mac, and doing other stuff in the backgroundd of while I was doing that. But there was definitely something wring with my disk drive because the main reason i thought a disk was stuck in there was because something was blocking me from putting in a new disk for a little bit, And because iMacs have that clothes that covers the CD drive is impossible to see in there there actually is a disk in there or not. So, my apologies. I was just frustrated when I wrote the review.

Fantastic! Nothing else worked in my iMac, I got so desparate I even tried poking around with a credit card. The Advanced app (included) worked first time, brilliant!

Why not just use Command E or drag the disk to the trash ?

I launched the application ( Intel ) and did not get the eject icon into the menu bar.

DiscEject doesn't add an eject icon on the menu bar but helps ejecting stuck (and non stuck) discs. If you launch DIscEject it will simply try to eject the problematic disc (when normal ejecting is not working).

Unfortunately it seems that DiscEject does not support remote disc drives on MacBook Air. I don't know if I can fix this, since I haven't any MacBook Air.

If you can't get it to work, try "Ejection Seat". Also, "Tinkertool" and" iTweax" both have the option to add a disc ejector to the menubar. Just FYI; I hope this helps.

Sigh. The above was in response to Culture of One's comment. Does anyone else besides me get their responses improperly placed and if so, how do you fix it?
