My CD drive started having a cute little problem a while back. When I pressed the button to open it, the light would blink but there would be no response. No problem, I just found a way to pry it open, so that I could put the CD in. Then I pressed the button and it would shut easily.
...But not anymore. Suddenly it decides that it'll go back in, but only to a certain point. The tray keeps attempting to close but meets some sort of problem. And naturally, my computer is begging to be restored (it's beyond help). This couldn't come at a worse time. Anyone ever encountered and conquered this problem?
