If you're not afraid to open your MBP and remove the the optical drive you can manually clean the drive laser lens with isopropyl alcohol and a Qtip. If it doesn't work then the drive needs to be replaced. Last year I bought a lot of 10 combo/superdrives on ebay. I rescued six of them only by cleaning the laser lens and the internal mechanism.

You can try a cleaning disk. They work about 20% of the time. Your second choice is replacing the drive which is expensive. Third is to get an external drive which will also move to your next machine.

Here's your choices on internal drives: http://www.ifixit.com/Mac-Parts/MacBook-...

Think about how often you actually use this drive. If it's about once a month, look at an external. I like the LaCie drives. I have a combo Firewire and USB so I can also boot from it: http://www.lacie.com/us/products/family....

Steve, none of this had to do with physically fixing the drive, it was all on software fixes. Windows software fixes just don't work on Macs.
