Hi, I hope someone knows an answer to this, I've been looking around for a while. Basically a few months back my cd/dvd drive in my original 400mhz TiBook got stuck in eject, if you try to put something in you can tell there is something in the way, presumably the arm that pushes the cd out. I've tried hard resetting the laptop and everything else I can think of, including opening it up to see if I could find something, but the cd case itself was sealed, so no luck.<br><br>thanks,<br>shawn<br><br><br>
There is a lever on the inside you can push to force-eject the CD. If you can't find that, I'd take it to a dealer.<br><br>Also, try googling "powerbook slot load force eject" or something like that.<br><br><br>

thanks, I did try that button do, the problem is that it is stuck in the eject position and seems to think it is loaded or something. Any idea how to find a local mac dealer?<br><br>thanks,<br>shawn<br><br><br>

sheesh, I just tried to call apple about this to see if they had a knowledge base with this that they could look up, I was told they could only search the knowledge base if I paid them $50. That's just pathetic.<br><br>

You can search Apple's Knowledge Base for free here, http://www.apple.com/support/<br>and also see options for DIY updates. Although you'll probably find cheaper options at places like Other World Computing or MacResQ.<br>I've had similar problems with the drive on my 667mHz 15 Ti Powerbook, takes about 10 or 15 attempts to get it to accept ANY disk.<br><br>
