    I have a 17" powerbook that is spitting out discs, trying to read them then spitting them out, the odd thing is, it's only one disc, but when you put a disc in after it, it spits that out the first few times.

    I personally think the disc is fucked - however, if there is a specfic optical test that would be awesome???

    Try cleaning out the drive - get a can of compressed air and squirt this into the drive to clean out any dust crud etc.

    Was trying to avoid that - because that only moves the dust around, doesn't really clean it out... hmmm, I guess it is a dirty drive, but anyone know of any software to test if your optical drive is failing? I guess that is hard to predict until it dies :P
