Bad DVD drive Imac G5 (2nd time!!!)


A friend of mine is a switcher and she purchased her first Imac G5 about two months ago. Within the first month her Superdrive stopped working in the middle of playing a DVD. When she quit the DVD player the disc was nowhere to be found. She had to restart the computer to eject the DVD. She took the Imac to the Genius Bar and had the SD replaced.

Last night the same thing happend to her! Anyone else have this problem? Does anyone know what is causing these problems? I am pretty sure she is taking care of her computer and not abusing it.


Either she VERY unlucky or something else is going on. I would be suspicious of something causing the drives to fail like a broken cooling fan or something along that way.
