    I have a (fairly) ancient MacBookPro with a Superdrive that will accept CD/DVD but then rejects them and will not read them. As a result I am using a Samsung DVD writer/reader that is sometimes problematic.

    Is there a way of reinstating an on board Superdrive without replacing it?

    My son has suggested that, like the reset button on G4s and G5s, that there may be a simple way that we are missing.

    Help please?

    Your superdrive is busted. You can get a repalcement swap them out but you're not going to be able to fix it by hitting a button.

    If you want to replace it, you can head over to ifixit to find the parts you need for your specific macbook pro: The superdrive is about a $150-200 it might not be worth replacing.
