Hey guys,
So, I'm an idiot.. I bought a cd drive cleaner that uses brushes to clean for my desktop and dvd player, but it said it would work for laptops too.. However, I was an idiot and didn't think about it being a slot loading drive. SO, i took it out after it was done, i guess, and put the disk aside. A couple of days later, i tried to load another cd, but it wouldn't read it. It made alot of clicking noises and then ejected it straight out. I looked at the cleaner disk and it had a brush missing. I think it is still stuck in there. Now, i have no experience with apple hardware and working on them. Any suggestions?

QUOTE Thanks
