    The optical drive of my macbook white core duo 1.83ghz has this problem that it wil keep on ejecting the DVD/CD.I know this has been asked,but can anybody suggest any troubleshooting?

    I have a spare optical drive from my 15" macbook pro aluminum non unibody,will it be possible that i will replace it to my macbook white?

    Optical drives are really straight-forward. It sounds like yours is bad.

    Have you tried using a cd/dvd cleaning cd (with the small brushes attached) on the macbook optical drive? The macbook drives weren't very reliable. You can look for a new superdrive, like the UJ-857, UJ-857-CA and GWA-4080M at ebay.
