I hope Apple will find a way at least to reduce the dustiness in the DVD-drive.I have a two years old MacBook Pro, but my fried has a new one and If you don't completely insert a disc, the drive will reverse and push the disc back out. Peter, I'm glad it worked out for you! ;) October 15, 2010 at 9:04 AM Anonymous said...
This worked perfectly. Step 5: Wait 5 seconds, press the power button to turn on the Mac. 4. the AppleCare warranty, ha!) which can't be passed to my clients directly. It worked for me as well!
Reconnect the Superdrive directly to the display when you no longer need to start the computer from the SuperDrive. While on the subject of Mac's etc. Inserting a non-standard sized or shaped disc into a drive that is not designed to accommodate it may damage the drive.

This is normally the volume Macintosh HD. Wow, I was about to bring my mbp to the shop but this tip worked just as great as described.Thanks soooo much February 11, 2012 at 9:46 PM Brian said... Use of such discs is not supported and any damage caused will not be covered under your Apple warranty or applicable extended service contract. https://www.discogs.com/group/thread/671186 I'd bet if you take a look around, replacing the optical drive in a Dell or HP laptop isn't all that much different in cost from Apple.
Nice trick :-) January 19, 2014 at 12:27 PM Guzzi sager said... Reset The Smc Macbook Pro Worked for me too, amazing. Why not extend that warranty today? Any suggestions for a fix?
