    I was trying to import a cd into my macbook pro this afternoon and it went in and clicked into place but then started making a huming sort of noise, but was you could hear it was not spinning, about 20 seconds later it ejected. I tried it multiple times and restarted my computer but nothing seemed to help. the disk drive isn't bent out of shape or anything and I've never had a problem with it until now. Any ideas as to what might be up and how I could go about fixing it?

    Well, 1, I'd try resetting PRAM. (boot while holding CMD-ALT-P-R, wait till you hear booting noise 3 times).

    If that doesn't work, go to the Apple Store and tell them that you didn't do anything and it just stopped working. They'll fix it or just replace the optical drive. Thats what they did with my broken optical drive.
