I had the same problem and spent some time looking up this issue. I have a sony dvd player and it seems to have trouble reading almost any burnt dvd or cd. I have read that sonys seem to prefer the cheap dvds and cds for burning. It seems the cheap'O dvd players play burnt dvds and cds better that the nice ones, go figure.
There is more info out there about making sure to burn dvds and cds in the correct format. You can try different burning software that has more options than just vista. If you are creating a dvd from a movie file such as an avi or mpeg, please explain more on what you are doing and trying to accomplish.
I'm glad you asked this. I have had problems with my superdrive as well. What I found out through persistent research is this:
The new Superdrives can take CD+R and DVD+R. (I am assuming you are asking about recording?
However, the older models of Superdrives ---usually found in Powerbook G4s, can take CD-R and DVD-R. These are different from the first ones ini that they are slower to burn, and just a few gb short of space than the +. this should help solve the problem with taking new cds and dvds for burning. The superdrive tends to just spit these right back out. If you are referring to playing them, then have you tried cleaning the dirty ones? Check the help section at www.apple.com. they have wonderful solutions. Try to put in a couple new cds or dvds to play. Open up itunes or the dvd player before you put the disks in. If you're still having trouble, make use of that warranty and go to your nearest apple store to fix it right up!
Hope this helps!
Have you checked device manager to see if you have a yellow checkmark on your DVD./CD drives? if ok, sounds to me like the maker of the LH-20A1l BLO5 either needs to fix your problem or replace it. The Nero 7 should enable it to work correctly.
