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?

The Matshita drive that Apple puts in its laptops is generally regarded
as a piece of cheap junk.

Buy an external superdrive.

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).
