How do you get a CD out of a stuck CD?
Insert the card into the slot ABOVE the stuck CD (sticky side down). You may need to use the screwdriver to guide the card, ensuring it goes in above the CD and does not stick to the CD until after you get 1⁄ 2 to 3⁄ 4 inch (1.3 to 1.9 cm) of the card in. With the card inserted, slide the screwdriver above the card.
What’s the best way to eject a CD?
Depending on your make/model, the eject button may flash.
