    HELP! macbook won't recognize a CD
    so i grabbed "Now thats what i call christmas vol 3." today in the store, come home, pop it in my mac, and it makes a bunch of noise but then spits it back out.

    edit: i tried this with some older CDs and it doesn't recognize them either... any help?

    has the drive ever worked?

    ive definitely watched DVDs on it, and im about 90% sure ive burned CDs on it before too.

    when you say reboot, do you mean just turn it off/turn it back on again? or something different?

    yeah, shut it down normally, then power it back up.

    once logged on, try loading a cd again.
