I just purchased a Mac Pro 8-core (Two 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon “Harpertown” processors).

I tried to install FileMaker Pro 8.5, and the SuperDrive won't read the CD. Nor will it read other CD's that I have.

However, when I insert the install disc that came with the computer, it will read that disc.

Any idea as to why it won't read "older" CD's?
