    my late 2008 MBP ejects CDs when i try to insert them.
    i heard some sounds on my superdrive and after 30 seconds it ejects the CD.

    i want to try a CD cleaner but i am afraid it may harm my MBP.

    should i use cd cleaner or no ?

    I previously had the same problem: insert DVD, superdrive made funny noises, then spit the DVD out. I had to have the drive replaced by apple care.

    You can try a CD cleaner, however. I just used one yesterday after my superdrive "failed to calibrate the laser" and it fixed my problem without causing damage.

    It may not fix your problems but it certainly couldn't hurt to try. The CD/DVD lens cleaner is really just a CD with a few soft bristles that remove any dust that may be sitting on up of the lens. If your superdrive is having trouble spinning the media or seeking the tracks it may need to be replaced.
