comment How can I back up my OSX 10.6 Installation DVD and create a bootable USB drive?
Recently I formatted my HDD and when trying to reinstall OSX from DVD, I had to try several times before finally I could boot my mbp from DVD and install the OSX. Now, when I insert my OSX Installation DVD (original one), it keeps making seek-and-fail noise, and after about 2-3 mins it automatically ejects the DVD without opening it. What can I do? how can I take a back up? I can still open the DVD in my PC with no problem, it looks just fine there. I created an ISO image from this DVD in my PC. how can I mount this ISO image on an external HDD and make it bootable ?

What are the symptoms of a bad hard drive cable? Isn't it true that when the cable fails, the hard disk becomes totally unaccessible?

Thanks for your concern. Luckily my mbp boots normally with windows and I could back up everything. Now I want to be sure if it is a Hard drive failure or the hard drive cable is faulty. So that I wont be wasting my money replacing the wrong part!
