    Its probably time to replace the drive. OWC has them but they seem expensive to me.

    Well you could have said so since the beginning, unfortunately there is little to nothing to do when a drive fails, but to replace it.

    My bet is to try to use different Dvds, maybe your drive don't recognize that particular dvd, and by trying different Dvds, I mean from a different brand and different category.

    Had a similar problem lately - the SuperDrive was toast.

    The replacements are expensive. I could have done it myself, but the MBP was not a unibody, so I had Apple do it. It wound up costing about $30 in labor over the cost of a replacement drive.
