    It's not recognising anything, cd or dvd. I'm hoping there is a solution related to software, as I'm out of warranty and don't want to have to pay to fix the hardware..

    HELP

    Yes, there is no problem there. I can open and close it easy.
    After inserting a CD, it just spits it out. And it's not a problem with the preferences panels either. They're all set to open an app or the finder if I enter a CD or DVD

    I probably should have mentioned that I've got a g4 flat panel iMac 800mhz with a combo drive..
