Can't insert a disc in superdrive...
For some reason when I try to insert a disc into my drive slot, I can only push it in about half way and it feels like it hits something. There is not a disc in the drive, as I just ejected a disc before I had the problem. I tried the terminal command to force eject and it didn't seem to help...

restart your Mac and hold down the mouse button. I know you said nothing was in there, but maybe this will move the bits around some.
Worth a try imo.

Superdrive doesn't accept discs
I've owned this iMac for about a year and this is the first problem with the Superdrive (which I do not use a lot). I've tried to shut down the iMac, checking the disk and repairing the disk permissions -- and obviously trying out different CDs and DVDs. It occurs to me that the problem might be that the Superdrive for some reason does not know it is empty. I've read that through Windows (bootcamp) you can eject with the Superdrive ejecting even if it is empty. However, I do not have Windows on this Mac and do not know how to eject when the drive is empty.
EDIT: Found a cure: click and hold left mouse button while booting up.
