If your desktop loads up and still no CD has presented itself then it was unsuccessful. A video is useful but a MacBook is very sensitive and handling it yourself in this manner is highly risky. Honestly there are only two ways to avoid this problem from happening again, get it fixed altogether by taking it to an Apple Store — which none of us want to do — or you can do what I did and buy an external optical drive.
The thing about this issue is that if it happens a lot then there is obviously something wrong and you can ship it off to be fixed and be Macless or you can use the alternative external optical drive.
