recently our cd/dvd drive started working slowly, making loud noises, not ejecting disc. I just tried to download a cd again and it worked for about 1/2 the disc (very slowly) then stopped. took multiple times to eject. any thoughts or ideas.
i bought a USB Superdrive to just see if that would be a quick easy fix, but found out it does not work with our mac which is probably 4 years old or so. Under about this mac:
Model Name: iMac
Model Identifier: iMac10,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor Speed: 3.06 GHz
i'm certainly not technical, so hopefully gave enough intormation to get some help.
Take the machine in for repair, getting a new internal SuperDrive shouldn't be terribly expensive. I am assuming due to the age there is no AppleCare left however if by chance there is this would be covered.
