On an Alu iMac 24" Okay so last night I was trying to burn a file with Disk Utility, as soon as I put the DVD in I heard it was making a little noise (most likely because there was dirt on it - I wasn't thinking properly). When it started to burn, I could hear it make noise....I didn't want to risk not having a smooth burn so I cancelled it, then tried to eject it......to no prevail. I've tried everything in the book.......from repeatedly pressing the eject button on the keyboard, to restarting while holding down the mouse button, to tilting it on its side and let gravity do its job, to lightly smacking the back part of it........nothing is working When I do try and eject it, I've noticed it makes 2 different sounds....1st one is, imagine the sounds it makes when you put a CD in....and also taking it out, those 2 sounds very close to each other. 2nd one is sort of like the CD rubbing against something, like a bandsaw but on a low level. It wants to work but something is getting it caught..... I am trying to think through my options, I never did get AppleCare so my warranty is up so I know I am looking at paying for that. Unless, I've heard some happy people on here saying that the Apple Geniuses are being nice, for the Holidays (or something) and in some cases fixing computers for free, even if out of warranty. Can I take it apart and do anything with the SuperDrive like that? Thanks!
