And I suspect most us are not just one-time Apple consumers. They start by randomly ejecting disks when I insert them, and eventually, they stop mounting disks at all. I specifically asked the Genius if this was a common problem and was told “absolutely not”. I suspect these small SuperDrives built into 1″ thick MacBooks Pros are quite simply of poor quality. When a drive failed me on my PC , i bought a new one pulled old one out and slapped the new one it was a very simple and relatively cheap process compared to getting My iMac fixed. Thank you so much for this aggregation. The Costs and ease of repair out way the few niceities that the Mac provides.
