Leave the top case off and hook the Hitachi to some power. Does the drive eject? Does the laser move up and down the rails? Does the laser turn on and flash? It could be several things. If it doesn't move at all, it could be a broken drive belt, dirty motor, or fried motor. If it is the drive belt, it can be replaced for $5 from Ebay. If the drive motor is dirty, you can clean it for free. If you need a new drive motor then it can be replaced for about $20 on Ebay. If it is the laser, you may just need to adjust the pot, or worst case you can buy a replacement from Ebay for about $20. 90% of the time, a drive can be repaired for less than half the cost of a new drive.
