    I have had my Macbook Pro for about a year and 3 months. I have just had recent problems *while reformatting* with discs such as Windows XP/Vista *trying to boot camp them*, and the original Leopard and Apple installation discs.

    The disc drive will spin around and make noises, and spit them out. The Leopard upgrade CD usually works, but sometimes takes a few times. I have tried resetting the PMU, SMC, and I'm sure everything else.

    I really hope I don't have a faulty disc drive, as I can't afford to pay for a new one as it's out of warranty.

    I noticed this problem while I was reformatting, and all of my drivers are up to date etc. Is it possible something is wrong with the drivers? What possible solution do you have? I tried doing a search but couldn't find anything really. Please help!

    Yes, it works fine for DVD's, and audio CD's. Windows XP won't even be recognized, and the Leopard/Original Apple install discs are barely recognizable.
