Hi all,

The DVD drive on my 2008 iMac has developed a fault. It still accepts disks and will still read and or write them but it is struggling to eject the disks. I can hear it trying by the disks just don't come out.

Has anyone experienced this problem and if so what did you do to fix the problem? If it isn't fixable then how hard is it to install a new DVD burner?

Thanks for any help in advance.
