    Got tired of XP, so I got a Macbook Pro. Everything has worked great so far but yesterday I think I broke it. After watching a DVD, I ejected it and, in a moment of utter stupidity, kept my hand over the drive. With my hand over the Superdrive, the DVD barely came out. But now I have a problem: I can't insert DVDs.

    Help! :(

    Dunno if this helps, but try restarting while holding down the mouse button below the trackpad.

    Well, I push the DVD in but then it just pops back out (No system action takes place) Just pops out.

    I have tried Restarting holding the mouse button. I have also done a Hardware test: Apparently there is nothing wrong with the drive.

    Have you tried what sammich said about the restart with the trackpad button pressed in?

    If not then i dont honestly no. best to ring apple and see what they say.

    Edit: beat me to it!

    So should I just take it to the Apple Store? Will they fix it or (hopefully) give a replacement?

    It pains me to say this, but the explanation that you give them will play a big part in the outcome.

    In order words, be honest and confess that it may have been your fault will be received differently from "the drive just stopped taking discs in all of a sudden."

    ... I really don't want to go to the Apple Store. Are you guys sure that I can't fix it in the comfort of my home? Thanks for your responses.
