Lately my DVD rom on my g3 PB has been spinning up like crazy for no apparant reason. And it does it when i access items that are not even on cd, like Internet Explorer. I'm running on os 9.2.1 (i think thats right, it's the newest 9 patch). but it did it on OS X too. Sometimes the cd will spin up real fast (whole whole puter just hums and vibrates from it) and then it'll spit it out. It started when I installed BG2, but I've since taken it off, reformatted HD, and it still did it. Is my drive going bad?
