    Hello everyone!
    Whenever I verify disk permissions/disk on Disk Utility, it tells me the volume needs to be repaired, and to do this I must insert the Mac OS X start-up disk and blah blah blah

    The only problem is, my slot where you put CDs is completely wrecked :eek: (I'm very hard on my computer). Is there any other way to fix this?

    You can't repair a volume without using disk utilities on the install disk.

    Out of interest, how on earth can you "Wreck a slot?" :confused:

    You could use a friend's computer to make an image of the install disk onto a bootable external HD then use that HD to repair your disk.

    Or you could go to an AppleStore because if your disk needs repair, it could be a sign of failure so it'd be a good idea to get checked out.

    How can you wreck a slot? Well, you can have a very inquisitive 6 year-old who decides to jam whatever he can fit in there. :(
