How do I get a CD out of my 17" Powerbook if the CD is stuck?

look in your Mac Help

To eject a disc using Open Firmware:


Restart the computer.
When you hear the startup sound, press and hold the Command-Option-O-F keys. (The Command key has an Apple on it.)
Release the keys when you see a white screen that says "Welcome to Open Firmware."
At the prompt, type:



eject cd
Press Return, then wait a few seconds. The disc drive should eject the disc, and "ok" appears on the screen when the action is complete.
Type:



mac-boot
Press Return.

Excellent tip. If that doesn't work you'll probably have to replace your drive.
