    Yeah I would agree. It can be replaced but not repaired.

    The weird thing is that it has done this before and seemed to fix itself....

    Why use this drive at all?

    Here is what I always did since i have an iMac: as we all know that the temperature inside those iMacs can get a little hot, I decided to always use an external DVD-R drive, to keep things cooler inside the iMac. (You can get a good one for quite cheap these days!) Also repairing the iMac internal drive is a costlier undertaking than merely replacing an external drive. I think I used my internal drive once or twice mostly to see if it was working! Just my two cents...
