hi guys, I've got a problem. I put in one of my CD-Rs with a compilation of music to import onto my computer. Got 3/4 through and it started making funny noises and wouldn't import any more. After seeing it was struggling, I pressed the little (X) at the top to abandon the import on that track. iTunes then crashed and the drive was still making funny noises. In the end I had to force quit iTunes. Still making funny noises, I tried to eject the CD using the eject key and then by dragging the CD volume to the trash. Both times I got an error message saying "Can't eject: CD in use". I tried to relaunch iTunes and it said the library was locked, and it failed to launch. Still making funny noises, I decided to restart the computer. Once restarted, the noises stopped but the CD is now not recognised by my powerbook! Pressing the eject key does diddly squat and there is no cd volume on my desktop. iTunes now works but does not recognise the CD! Had a look at Apple Support site and they said to use open firmware. Did that and typed "eject cd" but i got an error message with that too. I'm running out of options but there must be a simple way of getting it out! I don't want to send it away to Apple, I need it for uni! Anyone have any suggestions? BTW i'm running a 2 month old 1GHz PB 12" G4 with 10.2.8 and 256RAM. I have the superdrive version.
