Superdrive mechanism not moving

Pretty straight forward, the title says it all. This is also the first time this has happened to me, ever.

Right, so my optical drive doesnt have a cd/dvd inserted and it is stuck so in other words, i cant get a cd/dvd inserted.

Anyone had this problem before hand?

Tried that already, didn't work lol

It makes the ejecting noise but then followed by another noise


If the mechanism is broken your only option is to replace it.


Maybe the problem can be identified more with this exact video.
