    Hello,
    I have faced a problem with a SuperDrive on my MacBook Pro 17 2.33. When I insert a CD or DVD it doesn't mount it, and I don't hear a sound of a disc being read, just something rotating inside. Disc Utility doesn't see the drive anymore, there is only a hard drive volume. But the System profiler actually does
    MATSHITADVD-R UJ-85J:
    Model: MATSHITADVD-R UJ-85J
    Revision: FAV1
    Serial Number:
    Detachable Drive: No
    Protocol: ATAPI
    Unit Number: 0
    Socket Type: Internal
    Low Power Polling: Yes
    I haven't used the drive and the Disc utility for a while so I don't know when this problem appeared, but the last thing I did was mounting a disc image into a Disc util's volumes column. Could this have somehow affected the drive, or the problem is with hardware (there still is a warranty)?
    Thank you in advance

    I would consider contacting apple if there is a warranty, a self repair might damage the unit more.
