    Have MacMini...8 gig of RAM 4 months old and since .2 update...super drive
    is dead. I wonder if Apple decided to tell us that DVD as far as they are concerned is obsolete. Spent a hour on phone with apple care with super
    tech and after doing about 5 things including checking it out as a "new user"
    nothing worked...re-installed OS thinking the OS downloaded would be a clean 10.8 but NO...its 10.8.2.
    Told they will call me in a week after they send notes to the engineer aka GEEKS...I have a note for them...do you people check all basic systems
    before you release an update or do you just say...hey put it out there
    and see if there are problems.
    If these people had offered a DVD I could have installed 10.8 w/.2 and it would working today but no...Apple in their arrogance said no more DVD
    OS.

    Odd. I must admit that mine (which I bought with my MBA) has been used once, but i'm going to check to see if it still works...Last time I used it was under Lion.

    PLS NOTE THIS ISSUE is with 10.8.2 NOT 10.7.

    I know...I meant that the LAST time i used mine was with lion...I checked mine with 10.8.2...It's working fine...I'm guessing you have a dead one.
