    My macbook pro won't take a CD in. I push it to the point where it used to be taken and nothing happens. I tried resetting when holding down touchpad. Nothing. I tried opening the CD window up top and still nothing. If this a replacement issue now?

    Sounds like a mechanical failure.

    Is it possible that something is stuck inside?

    Do you hear the drive making noise from a cold boot?

    If you are going to replace it, you'll have to open up the machine.

    If you decide not to replace the DVD drive, you could install a DVD caddy and install a mechanical drive for additional storage and get an external usb DVD drive.
