    Does it make any sounds when you open the lid?

    I meant, when you open the lib of the MB, does the drive make any noise?

    Does the drive show up in System Profiler in the Disc Burning category?

    So, it sees the drive as there, but it sounds like the motor that feeds/ejects discs might be broken.

    Yes, either take it to an Apple store, or call Apple.
