An interesting little problem. My System Profiler reports having a Combo Drive, and everything looks fine. However, when I put CD's or DVD's in the drive, it takes it, thinks about it for about 10 seconds, and spits it back out again without ever mounting it or anything. If I insert a blank CD, it takes it, does not recognize it, and keeps it. When I try to eject, it shows the eject icon pop up and fade away, but doesn't actually eject.

Tried restarting, resetting PRAM, no good...

Anyone have any thoughts?
iBook G4, Mac OS X (10.4.5)
