Hi, It sounds like a bad drive. Did you by it new? If so and its under warranty I would take it to Apple and let them fix it for free. It not here is the guide for replacing the drive. Ralph

Remove the optical drive from the MacBook, open it and gently clean the laser lens with isopropyl alcohol and a Qtip. Dust off the drive with compressed air, reinstall and test. If that doesn't restore the burning functionality, replace the drive.

Hi, By using the guide I reference you can remove the drive and try the repair lemerise mentions. Then reassemble and see if it works. Ralph
