So i got the macbook all cleaned up ready for a leopard install but it wont read the leopard disk. I tried a dvd and it works fine! The MBP reads the disk and the installer pops up. The macbook just keeps spitting the disk out!! any ideas or workarounds!???

Well looks like its a drive problem of some kind! is there somehow i can partition my disk and copy leopard install to and install from there?

When I clicked to restart to install it said my disk wasn't in. I just restarted the computer and then restarted with the installer. (on an iBook)

I ended resorting to a usb dvd drive and so far so good !!!! (50% verified) so i guess i will be taking it in for drive warranty next week ! :(
