SuperDrive going out?

Try an Apple Hardware test.

Insert the grey Mac OS X disc into the computer, reboot, hit C. From there you should be able to run the Intel hardware test.

 iPad mini 1st gen - iOS 8.0
 iPod touch 5th gen - iOS 8.0
 Mac mini Server M10 - OS X 10.9.4
 MacBook Uni L09 - OS X 10.10 PB3

Are we talking about commercially pressed CDs, or recorded CDs?

A lot of people aren't aware that recordable optical media actually degrades over time. Some brands are worse than others.

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!
