    Non working CD Drive on G3 iBook

    The CD Drive on my G3 iBook is not working. Whenever I put in and CD, CD-Rom or Music CD, the drive makes a noise for about 1 second. It does this about 5 times and then ejects the CD. I don't get any error messages appear. :confused:

    Any ideas as to what the problem might be?

    The laser might need cleaning. The laser is a VERY fragile and senitive part. Do a google before attempting to clean it. .
