    Maybe this has been on the forum before, but I could not find anything about it. Am I the only one with the following problem?

    The last couple of months my 2 year old white Macbook does not read audio cd's anymore. Once in a while it will load one, most of the time the first after a restart, but after that every audio cd will be ejected after several attempts of my superdrive to load the cd. Data cd and dvd's play just fine, and cd-r's can also be burned, no problems there.

    Hope somebody can help me...

    Buy a UJ-857-C off ebay for $80 and put it in.

    I think the rossman is right. You're going to prolly have to shell out for a uj-857. Apple will charge you like 200$ but you can get one cheaper elsewhere.

    possible solution

    I had the same problem - wouldn't play CD's yet would play DVD's and read CD-RW. I sprayed canned compressed air into the slot and it seemed to solve the problem. The CD's may be more sensitive to dust. I really don't know but it worked.

    I have the same problem but just with Warner Music CDs ... Googling about it I have found 1 or 2 other people reporting the same problem ... and it just happens with Warner.

    Does anyone have a solution for this? :(

    Is it country or rap music?
