One fix for non-functioning SuperDrive
Authored by: poenn on Feb 15, '12 03:54:09AM

Nice to know, but I prefer to open up the drive and clean it this way. Of course itís a little bit more work, because you have to open your Mac, but you can directly clean the lens this way without fear of destroying the drive. Hereís a good example: http://muzso.hu/2008/08/17/how-to-clean-the-lens-of-a-slot-loading-optical-drive-a-macbook-pros-superdrive

One fix for non-functioning SuperDrive

I did this... I cleaned the lens using alcohol. Unfortunately it didn't helped at all. DVD's are still working but not CD's... Those superdrives are really a piece of junk. Mine stopped working after one year.

I did this and everything worked fine afterwards. Before the cleaning it would neither read nor burn CDs and DVDs.
