    One fine morning, my new SR 2.2 MBP's superdrive is dead. It does not recognize let alone read CD/DVD.

    Given that I bought in late July, I have not installed firmware update 2.1 which seems to be causing this problem to a lot of machines. I tried searching in various sites including Macrumors with no practical gain.

    I called :apple: support and the tech verified I had not installed the update 2.1 and there is no prev disks are blocking the drive. Then she asked me to restart and hold #/option/p/r. No improvement.

    This is the first defective part in any of the electronics I had bought. Makes me go mad. :mad::mad::mad: I love my MBP very much but this utter failure of one of the parts gets me worried and annoyed.

    Any one has any helpful advice in this regard before I hand over my machine to the "geniuses"?

    1. They're not geniuses. :D
    2. A hosed slot drive is getting much too common nowadays. :(

    Seems this issue is more prevalent than I thought.

    Anyone did anything (did a CPR or something) to save their dying/dead superdrives?
