Toast disk info, says my disks are blank, which they are not. I've run the cleaning disk 3 or 4 times now, to no avail.
I tried a bought DVD and it played fine.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance

Sounds like faulty hardware to me. As mechanical drives age, they begin to fail with regular usage. You might want to consider buying a replacement Superdrive from ifixit.com or purchase an external CD/DVD burner.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
