    Alien object stuck in my superdrive slot!
    Hi All,

    My 2 year old has jammed something in my superdrive slot on my Macbook Pro (2gh Core Duo - 2006 model), the usual ejecting tricks are not working and the drive sounds like it's chewing plastic (ouch!).

    I'm reasonably competent at upgrading PC's but have never attempted to operate on a Mac laptop.

    What do you recommend? Get a secondhand superdrive off e-bay and install it myself (is it straight forward)?

    As above with a new drive?

    Swallow a pill and take it to an apple certified store?

    I do not have apple care.... Please help!

    have you tried using something like a paperclip to try and fish it out??

    Would have a go at doing it myself. A DL DVD burner will be much cheaper than taking it say a reseller for service and then who knows maybe the laser is damaged?

    They are selling pretty reasonable on eBay and do like Pioneer as they are recognised as native.

    Here is a linkl:-
