Have done some searches and can't seem to find a definitive answer to the following problem (any links to existing threads would be gratefully appreciated though); Getting extremely fed-up with my Macbook only registering about 1 in 6 DVDs - they simply get ejected without showing up. This has only become an issue since I got my AppleTV and am trying to put my DVDs onto it. Anyhow, the 2 things I'm not clear on... 1. Is the internal DVD being generally pretty crap an item Apple will change under warranty or not really worth the hassle as it seems to be a generic issue and any replacement would just as likely be crap? 2. I'm more likely to just buy a USB external DVD reader - will any off the shelf DVD-R register with the O/S or should I be looking for something specific ? Something cheap an cheerful ideally as it's purely for reading the DVDs so I can rip them onto my AppleTV. Thanks.
