Disk trapped in DVD drive
I have an old iMac EMC 2266. Somehow, 2 DVDs were inserted into the drive. I managed to get one out but the other is stuck inside and has been for months.
I should mention that I have attempted all of the helpful force eject strategies including trying to force eject from the terminal.
I am wondering if there is a way to disable the drive permanently so I do not have to listen to the disk trapped inside trying to play or eject. I should mention there is no disk visible on the desktop or disk utility.
Any suggestions would be great. I would really prefer not having to open this thing up if possible.
