Thanks christm. I am some what nervous about buying a new drive whilst not knowing for sure that mine is broken. I can't understand why it failed completely to burn or read writable discs after something as non invasive as cleaning it with a disc? It doesn't make sense? It's a shame that the Apple Hard ware test doesn't check the Superdrive as well. Is there perhaps some way of running a diagnostic? A big problem is I live in Paris, and although there is an apple maintenance store on my street,(big bonus) my French isn't great, esp for discussing Computers!
