    Just accidentally rolled my MacBook Pro over a chair (About the height a little over one MacBook Pro's screen) while it was inside it's case.)

    I then later found that it had strange DVD drive noises after the drop-There were 2-3 DVD grinding noises longer than the usual grinding noise at the beginning of a startup.

    Is my DVD drive now dead?

    Well it's not dead untill it totally stops working, and how high up was the drop?

    Roughly 45cm. It was inside a case though. :| It has the buzzing noises 3 more times than the normal usage. (I can start the noise by opening up Disk Utility or System Profiler-->DVD Drive.)
