    Hix, I just burn a DVD-R two days ago but to day is the worst day ever with my macbook. I inserted a blank DVD and Macbook ejected it after some seconds. I tried many times with some several brand DVD but it is still not working. I already search round and found out many people have the same problem but I still dont see any good solution. Someone suggests that I should call Apple but I am in Vietnam and there is not any Apple Care here (OMG, I bought this Macbook in Japan :cool: ). Some tells the firmware causes the problem but dont see anything help to solve. T.T Help me! It doesnt work with blank CD too. Superdrive now is just like a DVD-drive :(

    cd and dvd problem

    Hi

    I have exactly the same problem and no one seems to know what to do.

    I upgraded iTunes to the latest version and now the drive spits out any disc inserted even with iTunes closed down!

    Any suggestions welcome.

    Had that problem with a 12" PowerBook G4 a year ago. Had to have the drive replaced under warranty. Good luck

    It could be either the lens is dirty or you could have a bad drive, same thing happened with my 2007 MB and it turned out that the optical drive went bad.

    Disk drives die, the fix is to get them replaced....
