About 10 mins ago my Superdrive stopped working, it wouldn't eject a cd, so I restarted holding down the eject key, got the disk back but now my drive wont read any cd's or dvd's?

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

sounds like the drive is beginning to go bad. This happened on a previous powerbook of mine, and the solution turned out to be a replacement of the drive. You might trying the usual things such as repairing permissions and whatnot, but it sounds like the beginnings of drive failure to me. Hope I am wrong, but this is what happened to me.

You can try resetting the PMU (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=14449). That fixed my Superdrive when it appeared dead.
