    If it is still under warranty you can take it to the nearest apple store to have it fixed. You could also buy a replacement drive off the net and install it yourself. Only do the second one if the warranty is expired.

    one thing i have just done, thats working is i dont really use the cd d rive that often due to being at college and saving work on the server i think it was a bit rusty or summit, i just kept putting in a audio cd till it accepted it and played been playing the same cd for about 30 mins now so hopefully the parts have warmed up and got into order, keep you informed how it goes pal ta for the help.

    wanna hit me with some links?
    my superdrive is crazy buggy... and i might look into getting a new one

    ill put in a cd, and the whole thing will just vibrate, and my computer will lock up for minutes at a time... and i cant burn cds at full speed anymore... haven't tried a dvd in a while, but the last few i burnt turned into expensive coasters
