k, well i use reloaded and mine popped out. Yours should come out hopefully.
All those tricks about hitting ekject, unplugging cables, L+R, none of them worked, but eventually it came out. Took about 30 minutes the longest time.
Something to remember though, is once I unplugged mine and got it too loop, it wanted to loop every couple times it would boot, it had never ever done this before.
Actually the first time it looped, after power was unplugged, it only took about 5 minutes to come back. But the next day, after being turned off but STILL plugged in, it got stuck in the loop for nearly 40 minutes.
What I did to fix this constant looping was goto the msdashboard and set the date, doesn;t matter what to, i set mine to the 6th, after setting the date with the dashboard it now boots flawlessly again. Until the next time it's unplugged for 5+ hours...
