iMac DVD drive problem
Hey folks... a co-worker of mine is using a 20" iMac (purchased new earlier this year) and the DVD drive is suddenly inoperable. I cannot put a disc into it at all - I insert the disc, and the mechanism doesn't even pull it in and eject it. I can only insert the disc as far in as I dare, allowing myself a 1/4 inch or so to pull it back out.
A quick look at the Disc Burning section of the system profiler indicates that no burning device is even recognized on this iMac, yet it was working a few weeks ago. This system was recently updated to 10.5.5, and I'd heard a rumor someplace that there was a bug in this release that might affect some optical drives. Has anyone else heard this as well, or does it sound like a simple case of hardware failure?
Any input at all welcomed... thanks!

Exactly the same think occurred today to my imac 20" (2,4GHz Intel - 2008). System profiler says there is no burning device!
What about your mac? Did you find out what was the problem?
Thanks a lot,

IMac 27" DVD drive problem
I am having the same problem. I do not even know if there is a DVD stuck in my drive or if it is just messed up. I cannot put a dvd or cd in.....tried the eject thing, the apple tech had me do....nothing. I have to take it to have repaired. GRRR... Anyone know anything?
