I know this is a long shot as i suspect it's back to base for the machine. However... Before sending it back, i was wondering if the combined knowledge of everyone would be able to help me get this damned CC cd-rom (nicely given to my dad by the metroploitan police regarding the dangers of terrorists in central london, which in the interests of safety he shoved it in his Slot-loading iMac DV). Apple system profiler obviously laughs at me for thinking that it might show up as "media-inserted". The pin in the RHS of the slot gets poked, but to no avail and even the quick release spring mechanism on the LHS purrs like a disgruntled cat awoken by a vacumn cleaner, and also refuses to spit the disc out like a baby chewing on your iPod headphones... So my question is HELP!
