    Hi,
    I have a problem with my optical drive where it does not burn dvd's but burns cd's fine.
    Also is there a cheaper alternative if I have to replace the drive.
    Thanks :)

    Is there an error message?
    How old is your MBP?

    Cheaper option is to buy a cheap external DVD burner, instead of the expensive internal Superdrive.

    Have you tried different media?

    Can it read DVDs?
