    Issues With Superdrive
    Hello all,

    I'm a new mac user, having recently purchased a 13" macbook pro. Since the day I brought it home, I've been having problems with the DVD RW, or so-called "superdrive". When I insert an audio CD, sometimes the system recognizes the disk, and sometimes it doesn't. It seems to be about a 50/50 shot weather the CD is read or not. If it is recognized, then I can read the data on the CD and transfer the files as normal. My problem is that I have to eject and re-insert the CD up to 3 times before this happens.

    Does anyone know what could cause this issue? And if yes, how it can be rectified?

    Does it do the same thing with pre-recorded DVDs (commercially recorded)?

    If it does, you may have a defective superdrive. Since the machine is new and still under warranty, take it to your local Apple store and have them look at it.

    This along with your views on your battery do what chscag says and take it back to Apple
