alright so my macbook pro will not read DVD's. When i put a DVD's in it will spin it then a couple seconds later kick it back out. Seems like there is something wrong with the drive, but it will read cds!? so i thought that the dvd was scratched. I tried another and no dice. Also will not read any blank disks (includes DVD's and CD's). I have no clue what to do! I tried a disc to clean the reader but since it does not read any DVD's it was a no go. Any help would be awesome. Thank you.

    I have a brand new macbook and the dvd player can't read many dvds. It says they are scratched or it just crashes unable to read them. They are definitey NOT scrached. The dvd player is defective. I'm going to bring the computer back to the apple store. My last ibook could read any dyd-store bought or ones I made. This macbook is quite a disappointment.
