800Mhz 256 ram OS X 10.3.9 Insert a disk, the drive spins up, sounds like its reading, then stops. No icon on screen and can't eject disk using F-12 key. Show CD is enabled in Finder. Drive is listed in system profile. To eject the disk I have to reboot with option key pressed or boot to open rom. Eject CD works in open rom as does F-12 key when booting with option key pressed. typing df in a terminal window shows me /dev/disk0s9 devfs rdesc <volfs> This iBook was given to me and I was told the drive didn't work, but I have to try messing with it anyway. Drive is probably kaput but is there anyway this could be a software problem like missing drivers, device not mounting? I know next to nothing about apple computers. The last one I owned was a //c Not knowing if this would even do anything, I typed mount /dev/cdrom and I get back mount: /dev/cdrom: unknown special file or file system. Anything else I can try or is it time for the 46 step process to replace the drive?
