I have bootcamp installed on my computer and Windows XP Service Pack 2 running on it, but when I insert the (legit) DVD that has all the drivers for running windows on MAC OSX, it ejects it about 10 seconds later. It won't read it, respond to it, and I can't hear or feel it spinning even.

Anyone have any suggestions on fixing this, or even a place where I can download the drivers without needing to use the CD Drive?

Any help would be immensely appreciated!!

Are you using the correct Leopard DVD (should be DVD 1) to install the drivers? In any event, the DVD should not be ejected. Be sure to read page 14 of the Boot Camp installation PDF file. Link

Boot Camp drivers: Try the sites mentioned in the following forum message: Link

I tried one of the sites and it worked. Not sure about the remainder though.

Regards.

Thank you so much for the link!

Turns out the CD/DVD drive doesn't work at all now ): So I might have to send my macbook in.

Anyways, thank you for the help
