    So whenever I try to burn a CD I get a message saying there was an error with the drive or something. I tried calling Apple and the guy I talked to wasn't helpful at all, put me on hold for awhile and really didn't resolve anything.

    Does anyone know what I can do? He said it would be really expensive to get a new CD burner in my computer since it's out of warranty.

    I did it my Macbook and it wasn't bad at all. I do have some technical/mechanical experience though.

    I actually believe you that he said that verbatim. Because the quote i got from Apple was 450.

    Fix it yourself, get a drive on ebay for ~100 or so and take it apart. It isnt really hard at all, all u need is a tiny screw driver from Home Depot for 5 bucks and its basically all the tools you need.
