I inserted a dvd in my MacBook Pro core 2 duo 2.4 but it does not show the content of the disk and marks it as a blank dvd. I tried to run a dvd written by the MBP on a pc but also the pc has the same problem of not recognizing the content of dvd.

The dvd drive is clogged by dirt and dust - try cleaning it with a can of compressed air and a q-tip or even a cleaning disk if you can't open the case. If it's too dirty you will gonna have to replace it.
I would please like to tell you there is no button in MACBOOK to eject a tray as there is no tray.
You simply see a line on the right hand side of your laptop where you can insert a disc, u need to insert a disc into that part and when you insert it you will show you an icon on your desktop showing you the cd contents.
When you want to eject it keep in mind u need to click on the icon on your desktop and press the eject button or u can also use the keyboard and press the eject button, which will bring the disc out automatically.
Please do not worry try it, I'am sure it will work for you.
If there would be any problem and you need any help please do not hesitate to ask.
I'am also giving you a link to see the video of how to insert and eject the cd, please note this is the old model of the macbook, the only difference is that the drive is now located in the right hand side of the laptop, dont worry take a look.
Go click on the apple logo at the top left of the screen. Then click on About this mac. Then click on More info. Then click on Disc Burning.
It will tell you what DVDs the optical drive will burn. If no info shows up, then you got a bad connection or need to clean the optical drive laser lens or your optical drive is about dead so you may have to buy a new optical drive.
Your macbook is not locating your hardrive. turn off your laptop, insert the Mac OS disc in the drive, and then reboot while holding down the c key to allow it to boot from the OS on the DVD. Then use the disk utilities application from the desktop menu and to a disk repair on your hard drive and then restart.
Get a cheapy drive cleaner/laser cleaner. Looks like a normal CD/DVD, but has a brush on one side. Should be able to pick it up from an electronics store/supermarket. Pop it in, watch it go, then try again afterwards. I've detailed this further in a blog posting at <a href="http://www.garysmith.org.uk/blog/index.php/blog/show/Matshita-DVD-R-UJ-857E-problems---dirty-laser.html">http://www.garysmith.org.uk/blog/index.php/blog/show/Matshita-DVD-R-UJ-857E-problems---dirty-laser.html</a> - there's a few comments on there about it, pretty much all of them saying that it's worked for them. I guess with it being a slot loader it's perhaps a little more open to getting dust inside. Hope that helps.
Does the computer immediately return the discs after they're inserted or do you have to manually eject them? If it's trying to read the discs then there could be a problem with the type of disc. However if it just ejects the disc immediately, there could be a recognition problem. So, if your computer doesn't recognize that a disc is in the drive, you can check several things. 1. Check to see that the computer actually reads DVDs. To do this, open the System Profiler in the Utilities folder. Click on ATA/Devices and Volumes/Disc Burning. Those are three different options but each will tell you if the drive actually does run DVDs. If it shows DVDRW or DVD, but if it only shows CD or CD-RW, then it won't play a DVD. 2. If it shows that it accepts DVDs through the System Profiler, then you'll need to check to see if the actual drive is attached. You can open your computer through the battery with a screw driver. Once open, you'll need to check the connecting cable to the drive. If it's attached properly/securely, you may need to take it to a technician. The drive me be malfunctioning and need professional repair.
