My macbook pro won't take dvd's - i insert them and it just spits them back out. i can insert music cd's and it will read them fine, and i can burn cd's in itunes fine, but it won't read anything else - including my install disks. i have been having lots of issues lately and just want to reformat and start over, but i've realized i can't because it won't read the install CD to do it! i went into disk utility to see if there was a way for me to check the cd rom drive and see if it was working properly, etc. but i don't see a place to do that. i only see a place to check/reformat a cd. is there a place to do this? the nearest apple store from me is 2 hours and i work so it's hard for me to get to one asap. so i figured i'd ask here first to see if there was a way i could try to troubleshoot this myself first. thanks to anyone who can help!
