Unhappy MacBook Pro CD/DVD Drive Stopped Working

I have a MacBook Pro 17-inch (Late 2009) running OS X Mountain Lion.

The CD/DVD has stopped working. Here is the general problem:

1. I insert a CD/DVD into the Drive.

2. It spins for 3 seconds, then makes a load sound.

3. It makes 4 clicking sounds.

4. Then the Drive ejects the disk.


I have also noticed the eject button does not even respond on the screen and does not show the symbol on the screen when pressed.

The Drive auto ejects all CDs all DVD's.

Can anyone help me? Or give me any advice into whats actually going on?

I am not sure if I have many days left on my Apple Care.

Thanks again,

Ross
