    Thats not giving us much to go on. Thats like saying im trying to put the key in the car but it doesnt work.

    What have you tried to do ?? Insert it ?? Is it inserted and not playing ?? We need more info to help with a solution.
    Mac Specs are always good as what OS you are running.

    I can't insert it. I put it up to the DVD player but it does not take it in.

    What model MBP ?? That info so we can see if its a world wide problem. Is it still in warranty ?? You say your new to Mac but you could of bought a old MBP.
    Can you get to a  store ?? If so i would be taking it in and getting them to check it out if your sure its not taking it in .Are you puching it all the way until it just about disappears ??? You need to do that on a MBP. Only about 8-10 mm will be left showing before it sucks it in.. . . . The best i can offer atm

    Cheers

    Push it in further... it takes it in in the last cm-inch or so.

    Well if you have done as i said above and inserted it until its just showing then i would take it straight back to them and get them to replace it for you. And they will no ?'s asked if it isnt working.
