I own a MacBook Pro and for almost a year now the CD/DVD has acted strangely. It accepts DVDs most of the time but will never read CDs of any kind. A few seconds after putting the CD into the drive it spits it out as if it doesn't recognize it.

The optical drive for this computer is going to cost somewhere around $250, not to mention the labor at the repair shop. I, as a thrifty college student, am unwilling to pay such outrageous prices, but I have found almost no alternatives.

A friend of mine uses an external CD/DVD drive but I have been unable to find one. So, my question is, is there anyone out there that can direct me to a website where I can buy an external drive that is mac compatible and costs less than $250.
