    hello folks ,

    boy oh boy Ive tried and searched and apologies if there is a post here that I missed in relation to my issue..

    - so , background: MBP , 2 years old , medium to heavy use but not as much with DVD's , Logic board gone capot 2 month ago but fixed under apple warranty.

    - Problem: DVD reader wont read anything (tried upside down trick ) and some CD's wouldnt work either. tried to install Snow-leopard and it spits it out after 10 secs. it seems to like blank CD's or burnt Cd's but thats no good when trying to load new software.,,

    - phoned apple and they couldn't care less

    this is what the profiler says :

    HL-DT-ST DVDRW GSA-S10N:
    Firmware Revision: AP09
    Interconnect: ATAPI
    Burn Support: Yes (Apple Shipping Drive)
    Cache: 2048 KB
    Reads DVD: Yes
    CD-Write: -R, -RW
    DVD-Write: -R, -R DL, -RW, +R, +R DL, +RW
    Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, CD-Raw, DVD-DAO
    Media: Insert media and refresh to show available burn speeds

    Try SMC and PRAM resets, or carry it in to your local Apple service provider and have them check the optical drive.

    That sounds like the drive is actually faulty - could be a slightly misaligned laser. Definitely take to Apple and see about a repair/replacement (in the very worst you can always replace it yourself).
