Hi all! I know there are lots of problems with superdrives, and I hate to ask a redundant question but I haven't found anything that helps yet in searches, so I'd appreciate your patience and assistance. There's no disc in the drive, but it's locked up and won't accept a disc into the slot whatever I do. It never had trouble reading discs before--none of the spinning-without-reading issues I'm seeing other people have had. I have frequently ended up with ghost discs, when the computer hangs onto a disc image (or two) after ejecting the actual discs, but it's never caused a real problem. There is no disc image now. She is an old lady of a 12" titanium Powerbook G4. 867 MHz, 640 MB ram, running Panther 10.3.9. The drive in question is the original apple-shipped MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-815. Pushing five years, we are long past warranty/Applecare here. What I've tried: Pressing eject (ad nauseum) Pressing F12 Command E Pressing eject in iTunes Adding an eject button to the toolbar and pressing that Checking in About This Mac>More Info that the device is still recognized (check) Restarting (several times) Shutting system down overnight and rebooting in the morning Going into Open Firmware and typing command "cd eject" (says "can't OPEN the EJECT device") What I know of but haven't tried: Restart holding mouse button - I don't have a USB mouse on me. Hoping I don't need to take it in or get the drive replaced--no way I'm opening this sucker up myself, though.
