how to get rid of the crack on my ipod?


Phone repair shops can replace the screen. But it will cost. Knowing Apple is lowering the price for the new iPod Touch, I think you should try to fine out what a repair will cost and then decide to a repair or buy a new one.
You also could visit ifixit.com, because they show how to repair yourself. They also know what a new screen will cost and sell tools and spare parts if you need so.

My MacBook Pro 15" is rejecting all of my DVDs


ifixit.com has instructions on how to replace it. You can buy parts there too. You can look up part number and search ebay for a better price and still use ifixit.com for how to replace it.


You can also get an external optical drive that runs on mac or pc for like 15-150 bucks off ebay. Comes in an enclosure and has a usb cable. Apple sells them too for like 79 bucks I think.

Jack on headphones broke off in my iTouch


You might be able to get it looked at under warranty if it's less than a year old.
Otherwise, have a look at this:http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/First-Look/iPod/iPod-Touch You'll need some tools to do it, but they can be bought from the iFixIt site.
If it's jammed in there really badly you might need to replace the headphone jack itself, which may be part of the logic board. Could be a pretty expensive repair job if you choose to DIY. I'd definitely see if Apple will fix it either under warranty or for a fee. Much easier.
Anyway, iFixIt has all the parts for the iPod Touch here: http://www.ifixit.com/Products/Touch-1st-Gen/132
Good luck!
