Hi there,

I recently bought a second hand 2009 macbook pro.

I wanted to watch a movie on my new laptop, but it would not read the disc. It automatically spits it out after trying to read it. It does the same to CD's. It read the sims 3 fine when i installed it, so what is the problem with it playing movies?

Please reply,

A combination of a commercial cleaner disc from any music store and a can of compressed air (Air Brush) should help clean the laser head that does all the work. Air brush through the slot, short blast.. alternate with the cleaner disc. You may have to repeat several times.
