    I can confirm that all 2009 MBPs can install Snow Leopard (10.6). Is the Snow Leopard install DVD the retail one or the gray install DVD that comes with the MBP?

    "doesn't seem to be able to read it", does that mean it can't see it, load it, or install it? Not being able to "read" a CD/DVD can be a problem with a dirty optical drive, damaged optical media (CD/DVD), and/or the a failure of the optical drive hardware.

    In order to "downgrade" from El Capitan to Snow Leopard you will need to backup the current El Capitan drive, erase (format) the internal HD with Disk Utility, install Snow Leopard from the install DVD, and finally migrate your old data from the El Capitan backup.

    BTW: "IOS" is for iPhones & iPads. MacOS (OS for short) is for Macintosh computers like a MBP.
