    Question disc drive kapoot? HELP!!
    I can't stick a CD or DVD in the disc drive. It's the strangest thing.

    Pressed and held eject button, nope, I didn't accidentally forget a disc in there, nothing in there, but it's not taking a disc. Seems like there may be something blocking its path on the right side of the drive.

    Anybody ever experience anything similar? If so, was there a fix? Or will I be taking a trip to the Apple store?

    12" PowerBook 10.4.10

    If you can't make it open with what you tried already, I would say take it in for repair.

    Did you try creating a new user account to see if the optical drive is wonky in there too?

    Well, if you still have the same problem, I found that on macrumors:

    Shut down the computer and start up whilst holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared.

    ...and if you click on the link above, there are quite a few more tips on how to remove a stuck disk...

    No, there is not a disc stuck in there.

    And it doesn't "open" - it's a Powerbook, there is just a slot.

    The slot is not accepting discs.
