So I went to go burn a DVD today on my Macbook (purchased January '08) and my macbook spits the disc out within a minute. At first I thought this was the disc, I tried multiple DVD + R's, tried a DVD-R, and a CD-R and it did it to all of them, I rebooted the computer (10.5.4) and it still does this. Does anybody have any suggestions for this aggravating problem?
Yeah, from hunting down a few things on the apple/support forums I've been seeing just how much they're junk. I was looking at an external superdrive except that I found out it works only with the macbook air. I am just really frustrated that i'm even having this issue, I paid nearly twice as much as I could've w/a windows laptop (which would've immediately had linux installed on it) and now i'm getting a dysfuntional superdrive. I'm going to swing by the apple store on monday to get them to replace/repair this as i'm still under warranty. Thanks for the useful answer
However, Id definitely say that before you go investing on a new drive - if you're under warranty definitely take it into an Apple Store and have them replace it/take a look at it, because obviously somethings wrong (with the drive or it could even be a software/firmware issue).
