I suspect it is. For awhile now, it's suffered from "creeping read" problems. The drive has had trouble picking up a cd, but eventually it would latch on and the game would come up.

Today, nada (it was working yesterday). No cd I've tried has worked. It goes around briefly, then the drive stops and the green light blinks. I can eject with no problems. There are no error messages.

This is, by the way, a regular CDROM drive, not a CD-R or CD-RW.

Time for a new one?
