Hi guys, First, I'm happy to be a member here. Have using Mac's for as long as I can remember and will keep doing so. But I would like to hear some help in what to do in my situation. My MacBook (white version) recently got the CD/DVD drive damaged. There was a CD stuck in there and my wife tried to place another one and it got stuck and we just can't remove it. Two days after this, when we were going to visit out local Apple store to have it fixed, our MacBook stopped booting. All we have now is a gray screen. No apple logo, no "counter", nada. We tried everything, from starting up pressing option to reseting the PRAM etc etc. All we got, WHEN we got something, was a blinking "?" mark inside a folder. So we suspect our HD is damaged? So, what should we do? Is our data lost, can we recover? Should we just buy another HD and install ourself? If I send it to Apple, will they be able to recover my files and send me the computer with a new HD(with my files on it)? Thanks very much for any help I also have a G5. Could I clone my G5 HD in an external HD, then use the external HD to boot my MacBook? Would this work? Anyone?
