I'm new to the mac and finding it great so far, but after about a month of having my macbook, the cd/dvd drive appears to have stopped working.
I watched dvds when i first got the computer ok, but now when I insert a disc it starts to spin up but does not launch dvd player. The eject button puts an eject caption on the screen but will not eject the disc. The disc doesn't appear on the desktop or anywhere else. The only way I have found of retrieving my disc is to switch off and then on again and I get a message, disc can't be read, and an eject option.
I have just tried an audio cd with the same results, no program launch and no recognition that any media has been inserted.
Any help would be appreciated as I'm away from home at the moment, so can't get the computer into a shop until next week.
Thanks in advance
