    I have a 2007 Intel MBP, running Leopard. I purchased the family version of Snow Leopard. When I tried to install it, it just spins the disc for a minute, makes the noise like it's trying to read it and then spits it out. All other discs work fine with my MBP so I know it is not the disc drive itself. I have all software "up to date." My brother installed SL on both of his MBs, one newer than mine and one older, just fine (with the same disc). I haven't seen anything out there with this issue so I wanted to start a thread to see if anyone knows how to resolve this issue (beyond taking it back to Apple and exchanging).

    Thanks for the help.

    There are many reports of the Snow Leopard discs being faulty.

    I cleaned off my DVD very thoroughly with a little rubbing alcohol and then FINALLY my MacBook Air's external superdrive would work with it, but it was very frustrating.
