I managed to get a CD, possibly 2 if my niece stuck one in too, in my Macbook. I have no idea if there was one in there when I put my blank CD in but I know its possible to have 2 stuck in there, and with the problems I'm having I wouldn't be surprised. My mac doesn't recognize that their is a CD in the drive, no icon, itunes doesn't recognize its there, nothing. I can hold down eject button and nothing happens. The only time I get a response is EVERY TIME I turn my computer on or awake it from sleep it tries to, at least this is what I assume its doing, to eject the CD. When it does this is makes the most horrible noise you've ever heard for about 10 seconds then stops. It's almost like a tune, different horrible notes being screeched from my poor computer. I have tried absolutely everything. The cardboard, the business card, pressing spacebar at start up, tilting it, every trick I have googled has not worked. Any experts out there with new ideas? I would love to be able to turn my computer on without it screaming at me every time...and a functional CD drive would be a plus too. Thanks so much!
