    I picked my MBP from a local apple store which had gone for minor repairs. After I bring it back I found this Disc in my Super Drive labelled as ASD 35116. I think it is short for Apple Service Diagnostic (Dual Boot) DVD v3S116.

    Any idea what this is?

    Not entirely sure but you could try running whatever's on it! You might even get good money for it on eBay. Maybe.

    1) Make copies of disc.
    2) Return original disc to apple.
    3) Sell copied disc on ebay/craigslist.
    4) ???
    5) Profit!

    If you return it just ask the apple guy what the disk does...there's one way to find out without running it on your machine.

    The ethics at work in these responses has once again renewed my faith in humanity.:rolleyes:

    Seriously its not your property. Return it and do not copy. Thats my advice.

    ASD discs aren't exactly hard to get hold of. You haven't found some previously unknown grail of Apple's trade secrets, just a clunky looking disc that can test your fans, CPU, graphics and etc.

    maybe you could put it online as a gift to the macrumor community. it'll probably help diagnose a lot of people's problems here.

    Lol... my TiBook came with a disc like that (except it was a CD). It also tested the hardware. My 2 newer macs didn't come with anything like it though.

    Return it, and don't copy it. Chances are, even if there is a problem, you'll take it to Apple to get it serviced, so what's the benefit? It's just a toy to you......one you'll use once, or possibly twice.


    The responses posted here so far have sucked, including this one...

    Its a glorified version of the apple hardware test that some of you might be familiar with. It has options to run stress tests on the computer for problems with ram, logic board, cpu etc. Id keep it for when your warranty runs out...at least then youll know whats wrong if something happens.
