    Re: cd rom help

    if its a snow iBook (all white) there's an eject button at the top right of the keboard (has a triangular arror pointing up and "f12" on it). Push that button and it'll open

    You have some nice friends!

    I suggest you get a book on Mac OSX (if you're using OSX). Some say they're not necessary but you appear to be struggling from the word go

    sounds more like a hardware problem so a reinstall won't help
