iMac Spits Out DVDs

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
My first-gen iMac G5 has developed a very odd sense of taste. It won't eat dvds or dvd-rs, it looks at them for a while, makes a bunch of noise and violently spits them out. CDs work just fine.

At this point my primary concern is figuring out whether there is any chance this is a software issue or if its likely the drive?!

    What kind are they? My sis's iMac Gen 1 won't accept anything without a blue surface, or so it seems...

    Thus far I've tried two types of purple dvd-rs, some dvds from blockbuster and the the 10.35 install disk
