    sounds like you may need to get a replacement drive. happened to a mate of mine, who had the same issue. a disc cleaner failed to rectify the issue

    What model is it?

    To find this out: Go to the Apple in the top left hand corner -> About This Mac -> More Info... -> Model Identifier.

    Hi,

    It's a MacBookPro3,1

    Purchased early 2008.

    I have looked up other similar posts and it sounds like I have a dead drive.

    I would have a go a putting a new one in etc if I was told what to buy as in Pioneer etc etc.

    Cheers

    Some models that will fit are UJ-857-C, UJ-867, or GSA-S10N.

    Instructions on how to replace it are here: Installing MacBook Pro 15" Core 2 Duo Models A1226 and A1260 Optical Drive Replacement - iFixit
