    Specs:
    17" MBP C2D 2.8 4GB OS X 10.8 | iPhone 5
    CD/DVD Drive multiple disks?
    I'm just curious as to whether or not my MBP will let me know that I have a CD in the drive when trying to insert another one. Does anyone know what happens when you try to put a CD in and there is already one in there? Does it spit it back out or does it not let it even go in? Or does it get jammed? Lol, I'm always nervous that when I put a CD in I may have forgotten one in there and I don't think I'm brave enough to test this. Thanks.

    It just won't go in. No harm no foul, it just won't let you get more than an inch into the drive.

    I somehow once managed to get 2 disks jammed into a PowerBook, but normally it's not possible.

    You will also have an "image" of the CD/DVD on your Mac's Desktop to also indicate that you have a disk in the drive.
