    Hello everyone, i've got a little problem here... It seems that my CD drive won't read any DVD's or CD's anymore.... when I put a CD in my mechanics it spins a few times and then it just pops up a message saying that I inserted a blank CD... it doesn't matter what CD or DVD I put in there, it simply won't read them... do you know what may cause the problem?
    Thanks for all your suggestions and sorry if this problem has already been posted here :)

    If it will boot from a Tiger/Leopard install disc (hold C while booting with the DVD in the drive) your mac is likely fine. Your OSX might be dead in the water and need a fresh install, but you can always archive and install.
