is it possible that something could have gotten into the drive, which could be jamming it?

unlikely because i took a cd out after ripping it, then put another one in about 30 seconds later and it wouldnt work :(

Did any of the disks have stickers on them? Is there a chance some adhesive came off in the drive? In the meantime, try a PRAM reset (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=2238) although it doesn't sound like a software-related problem at this stage. :o

I had the same thing happen on my 15" PB, when I stick in a DVD/CD it just spits out the disc in like a couple of seconds. I've read on apple discussions where other people have this same problem after a year. Hope someone helps out or I'll need to replace it...

i tried the pmu stuff and no go, *sigh* looks like its apple care crap for moi. Do you call up apple and ship it back to them? or bring it back to where i bought it etc.?
