    Here's an odd problem I'm hoping someone here may be able to help me with.
    My SuperDrive doesn't seem to read DVD-R/DVD+R discs all that well. I managed to successfully read (and burn) a disc last night, but it refuses to register anymore! The disc spins around in the drive for about 30 seconds and then gets ejected. I haven't had any trouble burning DVD's before and I can't have burnt more that 15 discs since I got the machine in 2005 - so surely it can't be worn out!
    I doesn't have any problem reading any other form of disc (CD/CD-R/CD-RW/DVD), so I'm not quite sure what's up.

    Anyone have any ideas what this could be?

    Sometimes cheaper branded discs don't work so well in Superdrives. At first, I'd try using a high quality disc or at least a different brand to see if it's better. :)
