I'm also looking at replacing my macbook disc drive (give me another day or two to try and fix it before I spend money on a replacement).

That said don't know how helpful it may be but as I learnt recently if you have to replace it and don't want to spend stupid amounts for a mac specialist to fix then I would suggest find a compatible drive on ebay and conduct the install yourself, try ifixit.com - apparently they have easy simple instructions for DIY.

Not too sure how much it would cost in the UK, I know in Aussie I would be looking at about $300-$400 AUD to purchase & replace my dvd drive at the apple store. Personally I don't want to be spending more than $100 and if I'm spending a few hundred on a new disc drive I'm going to triple that and just get a brand spanker.

*edit* Just to add, there has been a lot of issues with macbooks and their disc drives so unfortunately both yours and mine probably need a replacement (my macbook was bought late 2007). I was hoping apple recognised this as a batch issue and would fix outside of warranty as they have done before I believe there was a Hard drive issue but no such batch issue has come out.
