    Might be stupid but... are you sure you're putting them in right side up?

    me too....

    having a very similar problem... everything works fine except for sony dvd-r 4.7 gb discs. memorex and hp discs work with no problem, but my MBP 17" superdrive keeps spitting the sony's back out....anybody got any ideas? all i keep finding is that the drive may be bad, but then why does it read everything else? please help, very stumped...

    There's nothing to do about it. Your drive has a media compatibility table built into the firmware. Different discs have different codes, to indicate who actually made the discs and of which variety they are. My guess is that these particular Sony discs are not in that table, and your drive is unable to read them. The only thing to do is to use other discs.

    I am experiencing the same problem on my mbp 13, is this normal or should I take it to my apple store?

    If you have tried several brands then it is most likely a problem with the drive. If it is just one or two brands out of many then it is probably just a picky drive and not anything to be concerned about.
