    I'm posting this thread in case anybody ever has the same problem as me and decides to search.

    Symptoms: Most CDs and DVDs function perfectly and do not skip, occasionally, burning disks (CDs/DVDs) fails.

    Some DVDs seem to have problems and do not mount. When they are put in the drive, it can be heard to spin up but after a few minutes spits the disk out.

    Solution: Buy a DVD/CD drive cleaner.

    I had highly doubted this as a solution but after 30 seconds of playing the 'cleaning' track the DVD that would not mount functioned perfectly.

    I'm not having this problem on either of my Macs, but does anyone recommend a certain dvd/cd drive cleaner for Macs?
