Arg. I popped a DVD into my iBook G4 today and the DVD player said:

A valid DVD drive could not be found [-70012]

I have restarted 5 times or so and the computer is not recognizing anything to be in the DVD slot. I cannot get my DVD out either :(

Any suggestions? I greatly appreciate any advice. Thanks :)

How have you tried getting it out? Have you tried restarting whilst holding down the mouse/trackpad button? Is this the only DVD that has behaved like this? :)

The funny thing is that I DID try everything I could find online and nothing happened. The DVD just poppped out randomly last night. Weird.
