    took my late 06' mbp to see what was up with the super drive. when i would put a disc in it wouldnt read it, make some noises, and spit it back out. apple says it needs to be replaced for $250. anyone have any cheaper options to fix this? i want to fix it so i can sell it and upgrade.

    Panasonic UJ-867

    Hitach/LG GSA-S10N

    Take your pick and then follow the instructions here:

    (Since you're using their guide, you could buy from them as well: http://www.ifixit.com/MacBook-Parts/MacBook-8x-SuperDrive/IF185-040)

    Model number should says on the bottom-side of your computer along the top edge next to your hinge.
