  1. I have Windows 7 on my Macbook Pro. My disc wasn't stuck, but the eject button on the keyboard would not work. Solution: Go to Start Button, Click on Computer. I have my computer set to a Single click to highlight things, and a Double click to open things; Single click on DVD drive, and Eject button will appear at the top! Click that and you're done! Phew!
