posted here about this issue already, but only got one response. Here is what is going on with my MacBook: -If I insert a music CD, the CD drive spins it and makes noise. It does not open iTunes or even show it on the desk top. It is not recognized. Then the computer ejects the disc. -My iDVD software seems to have taken a crap. I am prompted every time the computer boots up that iDVD has quit unexpectedly and gives the options of "relaunch" "cancel" or "report to Apple". -This is the weird part: I was going to reinstall Leopard OSX from the disc. The computer reads the discs and the "X" screen pops up. I then try to go through to reinstall the software as it tells me that it will restart. It restarts and then ejects the disc when the Apple logo pops up. Therefore I cannot reinstall the software. Does this sound like a software or hardware problem? Can the fact that iDVD is not working mean that my CD's would not play? Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do here? I am desperate and would like to know what other approach I should take before I put a new drive in. Thanks in advance. White MacBook, 2yrs old. 500gbhd, 4g RAM.
