    Most common cause of DVD drive failure (after wear and tear) is dropping the console on its side while in use. I always keep external HDD drives and consoles (playstation, wii) on the 'flat' side down.

    If you can open it up I would have a fiddle with the plastic eject mechanisms (very lightly with a screwdriver tip) to see if it gets freed up. Failing that....

    Easiest fix is to get yourself a replacement drive from fleabay (around 31 delivered from hong kong)

    If you had an older drive that could read DVD-R then you will have to replace the motherboard from the old drive over to the new one if you still need that capability, theres a guide in one of the tutorial sections to replace the drive. If you need to replace the motherboard you will need to do a bit of deoldering/soldering. I have ordered some desoldering braid and will be attempting this in the next week or so and can reply here to tell you how easy/difficult it was.
