Back in March 2013 I had my DVD/CD optical driver replaced as I could not read/write CD's on it and towards the end DVD's. I thought the problem was fixed as DVDs and CD's were playing fine again. I just rented a movie on line (whether this is connected I do not know) and now it wont read CD's!  The driver tries to read the CD (Ive tried 5 different ones so far - including one brand new never played), has a few goes then spits it out without any error message.


What can I do? Is there a fix? Can I get a replacement on a faulty optical driver seeing as it was less than a year ago?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    If your MacBook is outside of warranty or an AppleCare plan I am afraid you are out of luck. Repairs come with a 90 day warranty of their own, but that has passed as well. It looks like you will need to pay for another repair.


    Best of luck.
