    Does anyone know how to or have any ideas of how to fix my drive in my powerbook. It's warped in the middle which makes it pretty much impossible to use. I have to force the discs in and when I eject them I have to grab the .5" that pops out and jerk it out before it gets sucked back in.

    1)i have that same desk

    2)take a large flathead screwdriver and wrap it with electrical tape. shove it in there and slowly pry it open more.
