Maybe the DVD is too scratchy for the drive or the drive itself is dirty; I got two MB in the past with non-working superdrive. After vacuum cleaning them and cleaning the lens with a q-tip (carefully) they work like a charme.

That may be it but it playes CD-R with no problem Could the Image file be currupt?


Ah, now I see :-)

I had the "problem" that even with a original retail DVD of Apple the drive was moving a lot its head / lens, in opposite to many other DVDs and CDs.

Of course, if the DVD was made by a image file, the image file might be corrupt; I think this could easily checked by inserting another DVD, e.g. a movie DVD (at least it should state that it can't play the DVD because of encryption).
