    Question; I've got this model Mac Mini and the optical drive has a disc stuck in it. Does anyone know if there is an emergency release mechanism anywhere? (I searched in the usual obvious places but was unable to find it.) I'm trying to determine whether I will need to remove the entire optical drive or not. (And even if I do, will that give me any greater access to the stuck CD -- assuming I don't smash the old optical drive with a proverbial hammer?)

    So if there's no manual eject port and the OS is not ejecting the CD, then the only other option is to crack the case open and remove it manually.

    Did the “usual places” include THIS?

    Sometimes there is a switch or button on the bottom. A pencil or pin can usually reach. This is a general idea, not necessarily for the unit in question.
