I recently purchased a MacBook Pro to take to college with me. Everything works great except that whenever I insert a disc with a program on it, for example Microsoft Office or Warcraft III, that type of thing, it makes a few attempts to read it and then spits it out. Every once in a while it will read the disc but more often than not it will just eject it. It reads CDs with music on them just fine. Any help would be greatly apprectiated!

Thank you.

Are these Mac versions of Office and Warcraft III? :)
Definitely.

It tends to work after I let the computer sleep for 30 minutes or so, but even then sometimes it won't.

Thanks,

If I do this will I need to reinstall or change anything after its done or will my computer still have everything I have put on it?

I'm having a similar issue too.. :eek:

My MBP CD drive used to work fine (and still does), except whenever i login to my computer - the drive makes the funkiest noises i've ever heard... As if its trying to read a disc when there's actually nothing inserted!

Anyone else having similar issues with the drive?

Call AppleCare. Sounds like a bad drive and there is really nothing else that can be done that wasn't already suggested in this thread.
