I run a 15-inch, 2.53GHz, Mid 2009macbookpro.
Disc will not eject.
Have tried the switching off and on and holding the eject button and attempted to eject through IDVD programme.
Visiting the genus bar on Sat.

Any thoughts ?

I'd say it's knackered

I'd say that your superdrive is probaby broken, 5 years old for an optical drive in a laptop is not too bad.

If you have no luck you'll probaby be best buying an external superdrive at a pawn shop and using that as a replacement part.

Power the machine off. Hold the trackpad down, and turn the machine on (keep holding the trackpad down until it's booted).

This should force eject the disk.
