first post here, so, a warm hello to everybody!

imagine you import a Cd in iTunes.10 tracks.track no 7 is dammaged.the little wheel start wheeling and iTunes is blocked! can't even eject the CD because a window pops saying "the CD xxx is in use and can't be ejected"
The only way to get out out that situation is to force iTunes to quit!
any other ways that i am not aware of?
kindest regards

Force Quit iTunes

Apple + Option + Esc will present you with a Force Quit option. Choose iTunes and it should quit.

If the CD is still in the drive and mounted on the desktop, you should be able to eject it by either:
1. Dragging it to the trash
2. Pressing the Eject button on the Keyboard
3. Right Click/CTRL+ Click the disk icon and choose Eject from the contextual menu.
If the disk is not visible on the desktop, restart the computer and hold down the mouse button (Left if a multi-button mouse) until the disk is ejected.

Nice to see you here. The next time you post, please include more details like computer type and OS. Just like the red writing at the top of each post says. It helps immensely.

Let us know what happens

that Pete did read your post and answer your question properly.

If a track is damaged and the CD is stuck, his methods seem the only options you have.

I'm sorry these didn't appear to work for you. Please feel free to search the internet for other solutions if they exist.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
