But the main problem is when I go into V mode I get these errors
Sam multimedia: read or write failed, sense_key = 0x03, asc = 0x02, ascq = 0x00 and I also get disk1s3: I/O and could not unlock playlist

Got a MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac or Mini?

If so the optical drive has failed if it is a full retail install DVD of SL, black colour. These model use slot loaders which do seem to have a high failure rate. Always helps if you provide full details.

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!

It's the new white mac unibody with a slot drive but it reads other discs fine so I can't see it been the drive that's broke because it still reads my windows disc Soo I don't know

CDs are easier to read than DL DVDs which is what Snow Leopard is. Make an appointment at the Genius Bar and take your SL disc along.

Take it back as it will be under warranty and have it checked out.
