    uh oh my 12" pb's cd drive aint working... I was just ripping some cd's and then once i put a new on in it took the cd, made a weird buzz...... then another, the it spat the disc back out. i have tried several other cd's and it keeps spitting them back out! i have restarted a few times and i cant figure out what is going on!!! i hate these drives.....

    is it possible that something could have gotten into the drive, which could be jamming it?

    unlikely because i took a cd out after ripping it, then put another one in about 30 seconds later and it wouldnt work :(

    Did any of the disks have stickers on them? Is there a chance some adhesive came off in the drive? In the meantime, try a PRAM reset although it doesn't sound like a software-related problem at this stage. :eek:

    I had the same thing happen on my 15" PB, when I stick in a DVD/CD it just spits out the disc in like a couple of seconds. I've read on apple discussions where other people have this same problem after a year. Hope someone helps out or I'll need to replace it...
