    I've tried all the methods. I have a 2+ year old Macbook Pro. The drive was a bit bowed down, but a screw drive forcing the casing back up fixed that. I have tried holding down the eject button on restart as well as the mouse. I tried the command-control-p-o combo and it wouldn't boot into the open firmware.

    The laptop keeps trying to read the disk, but the disk is apparently unreadable. So what the hell am I to do? I can't even get into Mac OS X or use the laptop. I am very close to just frisbeeing the piece o' **** out the window. Please help.

    I know the feeling... Try an external drive if you have one.

    It FINALLY ejected.

    That's not the problem. The problem is that it won't boot off of the hard drive until it reads the disk, and it won't eject the disk until it can read it. Which is a problem if the disk can't be read...

    So either the disk is screwed up, or for some reason the computer can't read it?
