Whoa... I totally posted before... well, anyways, what I said, was that you should contact mac support first. See what they have to say. Forums for macs, etc. Someone on here probably will help you, but, since the majority is windows, a specific mac forum would suit you better...

I don't think it's a normal cd drive... a slot loading one...

I call that the "Professional CD Extraction Tool" it just sounds better than a "paperclip" lol. Do MACs not have one of these pin holes on the CD/DVD ROM? It wouldn't shock me if they didn't.
