My MBP is just some 2 months old and suddenly it has stopped recongnizing/reading the dvds, they dont even show up on the desktop, dont even read a blank dvd. it spins for some time with a noise and then ejects it out by itself. it is doing this for all the dvds ( a great number of different dvds ) i have tried in it.

The strange thing is it reads the CD , the only problem is with the DVDs.

Is dvd reader has got defective ? ..or some firmware problem?..

Profiler details for my cd/dvd drive is :


Firmware Revision: AP09
Interconnect: ATAPI
Burn Support: Yes (Apple Shipped/Supported)
Cache: 2048 KB

Any help will be highly appreciated.
