    I have problems with my late 2009 27" iMac's combo drive.

    It does read CD-Roms after it works a while, but when i enter an empty DVD-RW, it works for a while and then spit it out again. Any ideas? Except going to Apple and have them replace it?

    The drive:


    Firmware-Version: KA18
    Verbindungstyp: ATAPI
    Brennen möglich: Ja (Laufwerk von Apple geliefert)
    Cache: 2048 KB
    DVD lesen: Ja
    Beschreibbare CD: -R, -RW
    Beschreibbare DVD: -R, -R DL, -RW, +R, +R DL, +RW
    Schreibstrategien: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, CD-Raw, DVD-DAO

    If it's under warranty, it's a no-brainer. Take it to Apple. If not, you can get an external burner.

    And that's not a combo drive. It's a super drive. (burns DVDs)
