For some reason the CD drive does not open when I press the F-12 key the logo shows up on the screen but it doesn't pop open. I need to know if there is some other troubleshooting that I can do to get it to work properly and not have to stick a tooth pick in the CD-Drive hole every time I have to get it open.

Welcome to the Forums!!!
If You have a iBook G3 (white) or iBook G3 (clamshell):
If you canít eject a CD or DVD or open the
optical drive tray:
Make sure the disc is not in use.
Quit all applications that are using files on the disc.
Then press the Media Eject ( ) key at the top-right corner of
If that doesnít work, hold down the function (fn) key and press
the Media Eject key.
If that doesnít work, drag the discís icon to the Trash.
If that doesnít work, restart the computer, then hold down the mouse
button. To restart, choose Restart from the Apple (K) menu.
If the disc still wonít eject, eject it manually:
Carefully insert the end of a straightened paper clip into the
emergency eject hole on the drive tray.
