Hi, I own an iBook G4. And last night I had my first hardware related problem. Okay, I am 13 and I can imagaine what your all thinking... I'm the type of kid that just throws there laptop around and could care less about it. But, I'm really not, I am a big time computer nerd, and I treat my iBook as if it were a baby. Okay, well anyways, last night I was putting the MS Office 2004 CD into the iBook and it was fine. After I was done installing it I pressed the eject button. The CD came halfway out and got jammed the CD started moving in and out and in and out till finely it came out all the way. I took it out of the slot and as I was taking it out a type of rubber material came out (similar to that of an inkstrip on a type writer) I looked at it and I was like "Oh this is great" and before I knew it, the strip was back inside (don't ask me how) So now CDs will not go into the drive because something is blocking it. Luckily it's still under warrenty, and the Apple store is just about 5 minutes from me. I will probably bring it to them later on today, since the have a repair service area in the back of the store. I have two questions. Has anyone had or heard of a similar situation? And I have some files (term papers, homework, photos (of friends, not what your thinking!) etc.) The Apple Store won't go through any of my files, will they? Thanks for any feedback.
