    I currently have Tiger on my 15" Intel Macbook Pro and was given a free copy of Leopard by the retailer when I bought it in December '07. After many complaints from people, I decided to hold off installing. Now, I just tried to install the DVD and it spat it right out. There was none of the usual noises it makes as it reads a CD/DVD.

    Can you help? I didn't purchase Apple Care and the warranty was up in December last year... Any suggestions would be very helpful.

    Have you tried the disc in another mac?

    Ejecting the disc


    I am a newbie. Yes, I did check the disc in other computers and tried others that had previously worked. In fact the disc in question was a box fresh retail copy of Leopard. It refused to install or even mount on the desktop.

    Why does it not read the DVD?

    Any ideas?

    Thank-you for responding
