Hello community!

 

I've got an old Power Mac G5 on my hands and I'm looking to downgrade from Leopard to Tiger and noticed something strange.. It seems as if the drive has some issues. I can put in any disc, hear it make noise, and it eventually spits it back out. If I run into Disc Utility it actually sees the drive and gives it's name, which is QUITE interesting. So far, I've tried replacing the drive, replacing the data cable from the drive to the logic board, repairing disc permissions, and almost everything else you can think of. Does this sound like a logic board failure/issue? What suggestions might you have for me?

 

Wish me luck, and I appreciate all help.
