EDIT 3: I have also verified the disk did not need repair and verified and repaired disk permissions it needed it. It does sound like a weak drive. It's generally just harder for any computer running any operating system to read burned discs to begin with.
And, the slot load drives in all these Macs never were very robust. So, I blame it on the drive. As for Remote Disc that's not a bug and it's not Macbook Air only. It can stay focused on a CD that it burned because it knows the focus depth, but when you reinsert it, it can't.
You can try one of those cleaner CD things that never really worked for me, or take it apart to see if you can clean it manually. I'd probably just opt for a replacement drive. Thanks for the info, guys.
Add in the installation costs, and that's half a Mac Mini. Did you try the "wrong" drive you got shipped? What if anything makes the Mini's drive proprietary? It shouldn't be. I'd put in whatever I installed the drive that was shipped to me and booted into the OS. I then began inserting a disc. The Mini never "grabbed" the disc and pulled it in automatically.
I pushed it in manually as far as it would go without being irretrievable. This is annoying, considering making room for the discrete chip was given as a reason for dropping the optical drive.

Whenever it booted, it made a horrible ratcheting clicking noise, but couldn't eject anything. I've been having a difficult time trying to find a replacement drive to order anywhere. More Less.
