MY sisters g4 mini has recently developed a problem with cd's. When they are loaded they get sucked in and spin than stop in a few seconds. THey are never recognized vby the finder, and to eject them one needs to restart holding the mouise button. Any ideas? The drive is really important to her use. Reinstalling the system will not work as the drive won't work and the problem persists in any a different user. Oops, The issue is with DVD's as well. Is the problem definatly hardware? She is looking to sell the machine and naturally this will greatly decrease its value.
