Hi all,

I opened up my macbook to watch D2 today and it keeps spitting the DVD back out, I tried multiple movies and nothing is working. Any ideas?

Macbook Pro 15, iPhone OS 3.0.1

    Could be bad news, such as your drive has died. But here's what I'd recommend trying -- use one of those cans of compressed air dusters for computer cleaning...and gently insert the nozzle inside the drive outer gasket and give it a quick blast at each corner and once from the middle. I've had the same problem on my daughter's and after a few quick blasts whatever dust might be there inhibiting the disk reading clears away and all is well.

    I have a similar problem. My drive reads this really old scratched DVD-R that I found under my desk, but it WON'T read a Leopard install disk. It also won't read any of my purchased DVD movies.

    Same problem.
    Tried the compressed air.
    No help.
