    whenever i insert a CD the drive just continues to spin...i can insert a blank disc and walk away and come back 30 mins later and it's spinning...is the drive going bad, or is there something else i can try to diagnose?

    Sounds like a bad drive to me. They're cheap enough now they can be replaced easily.

    i figured...i was hoping to avoid replacing it, considering it is only 6 months old...i'll use it until it completely dies i guess :D
