My Macbook Pro can't see the DVD drive any more for some reason, even after power down and full reboot. It worked fine a few days ago. I also have put in a movie disc and it spun up but I had to use the "forceably stop the disc from spinning during a reboot with a piece of cardboard to create an eject sequence" trick to get the disc out. The machine simply doesn't see the drive anymore for some reason. Any idea how to repair this without having to reload the whole OS? I'm running Leopard I think... 10.5.8.




MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
