Specs: Macintosh
I can't get the drive tray to open on IMAC g4. I press the f12 and hear the drive make noises like it is trying to open but nothing happens. I don't see any manual eject hole. Anyone have ideas?
it is a cd/dvd drive on an Imac G4 800
thanks

On a PC, it's time to replace the drive.
This may break the front of the drive... try a little pressure from a small screwdriver to eject the tray while using the F12 option.

Trays can get stuck for many reasons. A cleaner used on the front of the drive, normal wear and tear, internal parts sticking, sticky substance on inside of tray door (cup holder ;-) ), etc...
