    Default Wont play CDs and DVD

    This morning my G5 imac stopped playing DVDs and CDs. The drive whirrs for a few seconds as usual but the discs are spat out. They won't mount at all. Can anyone help?

    Try rebooting while holding down the mouse button (left one). It should force the disk to eject.

    I think ejecting the disks are OK - just they don't appear and spin and AUTO -EJECT.

    Sounds like the drive is on its way out or dead.
