    is my cd drive broke?

    a week ago the cd drive started moving very slowly - also more disks have been failing while burning than usual

    the cd drive does not eject, although the light does sometimes go on

    ive tried the command line methods of ejecting the cd but they do not work... any other checks i should run? or should i just buy a new cd drive

    Use a paperclip to get the disk out and get a new drive. If it's sticking AND not working, it's time. Besides, even SATA DVD RW drives are only about $40 these days
