A while back my TiBook got jolted. Shortly thereafter, the DVD drive stopped working. It will still suck in the disk (but it buzzes when it does it), but it won't mount the disk. Occasionally the disk will mount, but anytime that the disk mounts, it is making a fantastic amount ogf noise in the drive. I took it an Apple retail store and asked about it. I was told that the drive is designed to float a little bit and probably got knocked out of alignment. They said that there wasn't anything they could do there, but that I'd have to send it in to Apple. I plan to take it to a local authorized Apple shop that does some repair stuff, when I go home for Christmas break next week, the guy at the Apple store said it isn't something that's totally unheard of and that Apple Care should cover it. I was wondering though, is there anyway I might be able to fix it on my own. I know a lot about the software end of computers, but not a whole lot about the hardwares side of things. If it's anything too complicated, I'll let someone more qualified than myself do it, but if it would be a simple matter, I would try it. Any suggestions that anyone could give would be appreciated. Thanks.
