    My MBP has been acting up lately. It seems that whenever I put a DVD into my drive, it sounds like the computer is reading it or attempting to and then spits it back out. When I put the dvd back in a second time, it reads it just fine and mounts it on desktop without any problems. Doesnt seem to matter what kind of dvd it is; game, movie, etc...

    The SuperDrive only reads it when I put the disk in the second time.

    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Oh and I'm running 10.5.6.

    When was the last time you cleaned the superdrive with a cd/dvd cleaner? Maybe that would help. If it is older then this could be the reason.

    I bought the computer last June. Never considered a "cd/dvd cleaner". I'll give that a try. Thanks.

    same thing happened to my MBP (3 years old nearly). started happening about a year ago.

    first off it only reads disc sometimes, then it doesnt read them at all...

    my burner doesnt burn nor read DVD's, it will only read CD's not even burn them!
