    I found quite an important cd, and tried uploading it.
    But I've gone and got it stuck in the drive, and it wont let me dig a pair of tweezers in there to get it out. Kicking isn't working too well either.

    Should I get out the screwdriver, and hit it with that instead?

    Press the eject button

    Has it got a little hole in it that you can stick a paper clip in and open like that

    I hate optical drives, when they break I never know how to fix them. Never tried the tweezer/screwdriver combo but it sounds cunning

    What I tend to do is turn off the PC, unplug it from the back for 30 seconds and boot it up (repeat ad. nauseum) - works sometimes but rossco or someone will prolly say that's a placebo.

    I thought they were only found in Australian rivers.

    Press the eject button and give it a bit of manual assist with a very slim screwdriver at the same time. Be patient and gentle.

    I've pressed the eject button so many times, I have fingerache.
    God damn thing won't give up teh Murphys.
    I've tried switching off the puter and everything I can think of, except hammering it till I get my precious.


    Ok smartarses, if I pee while standing on my hands, will jellyfish see this as a reason not to attack me, or sting me for my smugness.

    No reason. Really.

    I did say be patient.

    I think possibly the jellyfish would wait to see how long you can hold your breath.

    I think they'll be confused that you're smug while weeing, giving you chance to escape stingage
