How to Eject Your Disk from the Drive on Mac

The external Blu-ray drive is needed for the BD playback with Macgo Mac Blu-ray Player, but some Mac users may have problems of ejecting the disc from their external drives. Based on the fact that Steve Jobs has always been negative about the Blu-ray function, Apple has shied away from supporting Blu-ray playback. As a result, it is possible to have a disk stuck in your Mac sometimes because of the poor compatibility between Mac OS X and Blu-ray drive. To prevent this incident, here are two methods that may help you solve the problem when you fail to eject the disk from Blu-ray drive on Mac.

Method 1: Disconnect the external drive from your Mac

Sometimes, your external BD drive might refuse to pop-up the disc, even if you push the Eject button a few times. You can try to unplug the Blu-ray disk drive, wait for a moment and insert it to your Mac again.

1.Check the left-hand side of the pop-up list under “Devices” in Finder on your Mac. Locate to the drive icon which matches the name of the BD in your drive.
