    Ahh! well when i was watching a dvd (final fantasy advent children) i notice it stop continuing playing. so i stop it and eject it and clean it and pop it in again. and i notice it stop at the same spot as before which i was getting tired of.

    So then i tried ejecting the dvd. i didnt want to. so i reboot my macbook pro and tried ejecting the dvd it. it didnt want to eject. i tried it again but this time it made this bzz sound like its trying to eject but it doesnt. i tried dolding down the trackpad after startup, but still didnt work.

    I spent at least a hour going mad because this SuperDrive simply won't spit out the dvd and it's preventing the system from booting. :mad:

    Restarting in open firmware didn't work? In that case the drive is probably knackered. Hope they can sort you out at the store.

    yeah restarting in open firmware didn't work. i does this problem covered by applecare. (yes im a newbie dont mind me) and i dont want to disassemble the machine. maybe i should let apple deal with this problem later on today. hopefully ill update whats going on that time.

    You tried the PMU also? I have a powerbook, and reseting the PMU worked for me when I had this problem.

    okay i just came back from apple. their gonna special order a optical drive for my macbook pro. its gonna take about 5 days to be there at my local apple store.

    but i have a question. i still (somehow) can boot into the system but it still doesnt show the dvd-cd on finder. does it affect the harddrive and the rest inside of the system? or the problem is that optical drive?
