    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    Crook optical drive. Slot loaders in MB, Minis and iMacs seem to have a pretty high failure rate.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Thanks Harry,
    But as i mentioned after I open the DVDs in my old Macbook then I can run those DVDs in my current Macbook Pro.
    Seems my old Mac unlock something in the DVDs.

    MacBook(3,1): C2D 2.2ghz, 4g RAM, 10.7.5; iMac(12,1): 2.5ghz i5, 16gb RAM, 10.9.1; iPhone5S iOS7.04
    Seems weird...DVDs obviously are read-only...only thing I can think of is that something in your old MacBook might be looking for some kind of DRM key online that your MacBook Pro isn't looking for or something...
