I just bought this at the apple store like 20 minutes ago. I inserted the dvd into my MBP's drive (last model) 13in. It takes it in then makes this weird sound and then after making that sound about 20 times, it spits the disc out. I'm not sure if this is with the disc or my macs drive... Help?

Does your drive read other disks? If so, it's not the drive.

Yes it reads other CDs and DVDs fine. Im just confused on why it wouldn't even accept the disc. It will take the disc in and do it's thing but at the last noise it does when accepting the disc before the disc spins, it sticks on that and just keeps making that noise

If other disks work fine...the MS Office disk could be bad or dirty.

Return it to the store. They can even test it out there I'm sure and if it's bad, I'm sure they'll exchange it.

I'd suggest taking the disk you have, and your Mac, into the Apple Store so that you can try an exchange MSOff disk before you buy it. The seller of the disk (Apple Store) is responsible for the quality of the product.

Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

You won't need your laptop to do the return...but if you get a 2nd MS Office install disk...this would allow you to test the 2nd disk before leaving the store...and not have to return a 3rd time.

No the disc itself wasn't rapped in plastic, but the whole box was. I looked at the disc and there are some weird marks (not scratches) on the disc. It looks like maybe there was adhesive on the disc at one point

Actually that's iffy in the US at least. Technically once you open a piece of software, the retailer is not obligated to allow return of the software. They can at that point make you work directly with the software company.

Now whether they'll allow a return is usually up to a particular retailer, and many do so on a case by case basis.

In this case, I'm sure Apple will be willing to do an exchange.

It does say on the receipt that there is no open box returns accepted. I'm assuming this would be different since it doesnt work?

I can't say for sure. They may send you to Microsoft, you can't be certain until you go there and ask.

But one thing is certain, your problem isn't going to be fixed in this thread...so get moving to the Apple store you purchased this from and let us know how it goes.

Open software is usually exchangeable for the same product/software title....just no refunds.
