    I have a MacBook 13". Whenever i put in a Dvd, the os x reads it as a blank dvd. And this happens everytime i do it. I sendt it in to repairs, and i just got it back, they said they couldnt find anything wrong with it. I quote "changed combodrive. Tested OK with Known Good OS. Problem is in costumers software. Needs to reinstall with own CD."

    Thing is, when i took it home, the same problem was there, all dvd´s are read like blank disks. And im here thinking "how the F*** do i reinstall when it wont read my reinstall disk"

    Sorry for my french.

    Anyways, what do i do?

    Well, if it is indeed a software problem then it should still be able to boot from the discs because that's bypassing the operating system. Have you actually tried booting and holding C with the disc inserted?
