    I have an original Macintosh that I pulled from my parents garage and I was able to insert one disk successfully, which would not then I eject, so I took a paperclip and manually ejected it. Since then, the machine will not accept any disks, they go in most of the way, but the computer does not "click" and accept the disk. Any ideas? Thanks

    The eject mechanism is stuck partway up or down, and/or it's not lubed enough to work well. You'd do well to strip the machine down and give the drive a good going-over.
