    Hi, I have had this macbook pro since Dec 27, 2008, and I decided to try my dvd drive to burn dvds for the first time today. I was using Toast 10 to burn my dvd, but it failed halfway through (SENSE KEY ERROR) and my drive wouldn't eject it! It was making funny noises inside the drive, so I decided to restart and presto! It popped out, turns out after that fiasco it stopped accepting any cds/dvd's I throw at it (It spins the disc 3 times then ejects it). I have tried resetting the PMU and Repairing disk permissions and both of them had no effect whatsoever. Any ideas besides the obvious of sending it into applecare?

    I had the same problem on my macbook. I bought a new drive and replaced it and that 'fixed' the problem.

    I'd say you've got a dud. Buy a replacement on the bay (or iFixit if you like paying double).
