This is my 3rd repair under warranty. The dvd drive was sticking, scratching my important dvds, and refused to eject 1/2 the time. So i took the $200AU trip to Melbourne (the closest store) and got it replaced. Fine.
I got out of the store, and into starbucks, booted it up. Low and behold, it kernel panics, on boot. Every time.
I took it back to the store, talked to a techie, they took it back in, said there is nothing wrong with it, and gave it back. I demanded to talk to the manager, he came out, and said sorry etc etc, this was their policy etc etc. If it breaks bring it in again, regardless of it it works now or not. I ended up almost yelling at the guy in the middle of the store.
Now i am having communication errors when i go to burn.
Just as a matter of interest, can anyone with a macbook pro please post their drive specs for me to have a look at?
