The motors (if you have opened one) are very small and the mechanics really quite flimsily made that makes any work inside has to be done very precisely for example getting the laser carrying rods out of alignment is just the slightest slip or heavy handedness.
See pic for a fairly average drive - myself for the sake of replacing the drive unscrewing the casing and trying to align or repair anything in there that has been put together with precision machines is just not worth it. Just taking the flimsy cover off is enough to cause damage.
yeah sorry, im not saying he should fix it im just saying that if his disk is stuck it could be other things besides the motor like say it has dust in it. iv just had dead ones come back to life in a pinch and i have re-soldered parts back into ones iv had that at the time were expensive (blu-ray burners). now times have changed and its not worth it.
No probs mate I was thinking more along the lines that a disk may have self destructed in some way and wrecked some of those components and also that can be done by someone attempting to fix the drive who is not real sure of the inner fitments
