My cd drive won't accept any CDs or DVDs it's like there's something blocking it from entering, and it does these funny nose everytime I turn on my Mac book pro......... This problem started today after I was trying to insert a disk in, at first it was accepting the disk then spitting it out after 2 time it just wouldn't accept it anymore....... I have a Mac book pro mid 2010 processor 2.4 ghz intel core 2 duo Memory 4gb 1067 MHz ddr3 software OS X 10.8.2 (12c60)

    Are you sure that there's nothing stuck in the optical drive? Try the below eject methods to see what happens.


    Five ways to eject a stuck CD or DVD from the optical drive


    Ejecting the stuck disc can usually be done in one of the following ways:


      1. Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the

          left mouse button until the disc ejects.


      2. Press the Eject button on your keyboard.


      3. Click on the Eject button in the menubar.


      4. Press COMMAND-E.


      5. If none of the above work try this: Open the Terminal application in

          your Utilities folder. At the prompt enter or paste the following:


            /usr/bin/drutil eject


    If this fails then try this:


    Boot the computer into Single-user Mode. At the prompt enter the same command as used above. To restart the computer enter "reboot" at the prompt without quotes.

    Sounds like a hardware issue.  If the solutions mentioned in the "More Like This" section do not work, take the computer to an Apple store or an AASP.  Whichever is more convenient for you.
