Default Superdrive

Hey,
Got a 2005~ Apple iBook G4 today, 12". Thing is, the SuperDrive motor is fried or something's wrong with it. It shows up in System Info thing, but when I hit eject, it makes no noise, and doesnt pull CD's in. Any solutions? Fry's charges $380 to fix, and Apple says they wont work on it cuz it's Legacy.
