    Sounds like the slot-loading drive is broken - what sort of noise does it make? (Im lucky that my 500Mhz ones drive is just about working still, even if it cant eject more than 0.5 of an inch). If its definitely broken youll need to get a new drive, either a FireWire External, or a new Internal (The replacement job is rather complicated however as it requires disassembling most of your mac).

    I thought this model either had a DVD drive or DVD-CDRW combo drive? Does it spit out all discs or just certain ones?
