Hi everyone, I have had my 13" MacBook for nearly a year now and i think its great. However, my combo drive (CW-8221) has failed to the point that it refuses to read all CD and DVD disks... It just tries to read the disk and ejects it after a few seconds... Now, I have the following options. 1) Take it to Apple and have it fixed there (I still have 2 months of warranty) - HOWEVER, the official Apple dealer here in Greece is probably the worst in the world and they could hold my computer for a month or so until the new part arrives. 2) Buy a UJ-857 superdrive from ebay and install it myself - and in this case I will be able to write DVDs too What do you suggest? I really love my MB (just upgraded its RAM to 2GBs ), should I give it to the awful tech support or upgrade its optical drive myself? Also, is there any way to possibly revive the drive? And one final question. Suppose I want to reinstall OS X on my MB. Since I obviously can't boot from the internal drive, can I use an external firewire drive to boot the OS X installer? Thanks in advance!
