One day after watching a DVD movie on my laptop it froze and so I had to shut it down by holding the power button so I could eject the disc. Problem is now the laptop never finishes booting up to the login screen. Instead I get the standard startup sound/gray Apple logo+swirling loading and then the blue screen. After a minute or so the cursor will pinwheel, but nothing more. I have reset the PRAM, tried safe booting, and verbose booting to see if it changes anything but to no avail. I really love my iBook and miss the several days' worth of songs and years of photos and videos I have on it. What can I do to bring my Mac back?
