    It just happened today. I can put in any dvd or cd even blank ones and its like it won't even attempt to read (no spinning noise). I don't know what to do. It's an iMac g4 1.0ghz superdrive and it ejects fine. Any help would be amazing. I restarted, shutdown, and now i'm repairing disc permissions. I hope this isn't the end of the superdrive.

    Also, any guesses on how much it would be to replace the superdrive?

    In a false sense of reality...My Mind!
    Hello, if this still has the problem since earlier today it would cost a few hundred to have an Apple repair fix it. If you just bought an external drive about $100.
    Have you tried different media (cd's/dvd's) and does it do it on all of them or just a few? Try using the hardware disc and see if it reads that. If not then it maybe time for a new drive (do you use it a lot?)
    God luck and let us know how it works out ;)
