Question about Apple Wired Mediapress X SDI MPEG Encoder for PowerMac G4 and G5 - Mac 01MPX001
Most likely, your dvd burner lens is burnt out(they make the darn things out of plastic!). Just happened on mine. you have to either replace the drive or get an external. There are do it yourself instructions on Apple's website for replacing the drive.
Not all drives are compatible...must be slot loading and I read that it has to be set to master so you can potentially boot from CD's in this drive.

Tips for a great answer:
If you're trying to eject a CD or DVD:
Choose Apple menu > Log Out, and then log in again. Try to eject the disc again.
If you still can't eject the CD or DVD, choose Apple menu > Restart. While your computer restarts, hold down the mouse button or trackpad button until the disc is ejected.
