Applications :: DVD Player - Unable To Read Any DVDs

Dec 18, 2010

I own a Macbook Pro and today I realised that it wasn't reading any DVDs. It has read them before in the past but it won't now.

Whenever I put the DVD in it waits for a while making it's regular sounds and after about a minute it ejects it, doesn't even read the disc or anything.

Power Mac G5 :: Unable To Read Commercial Dvds / Tries To Read It Then Spits Them Back Out

Oct 17, 2007

The drive in my G5 tower will read/write commercial or blank CDs and will read/write blank DVDs, however, it will not read most commercial DVDs. When I insert them it tries to read it then after a few seconds it just spits them back out. Occasionally commercial DVDs will read and mount fine, but this seems to be rare.

Mac OS X (10.4.10)

Applications :: Unable To Rip Dvds / MTR Shuts Down Immediately

May 14, 2009

Okay...so I'm literally going crazy. My father ripped a bunch of dvds of mine using his pc (I haven't converted him...yet!) with DVDfab Platinum. I'm working on backing up my movies on hard drive and I have tried to rip them to my Macbook with MTR as well as burning them with Popcorn.

I have never had any difficulty with either program except when it comes to trying to re-rip these dvds copied on pc first.It doesn't seem logical that this can be a pc to mac problem...but who knows? MTR shuts down immediately when trying to rip the movie. Popcorn won't burn the TS file from the DVD or an image file of the DVD. I'm lost. Does anyone have any suggestions...?

OS X :: DVDs Made With 10.4.11 Cannot Be Read With 10.6.4?

Jul 3, 2010

I have unusual, although not debilitating issue with DVDs made on a white 13-inch MB (MB2,1, mid-2007, 2.16GHz, 2GB RAM, SuperDriveDVD=Matshita DVD-R UJ-857E) running Tiger 10.4.11 which cannot be read on a MBPro 15.4-inch (MBP4,1, early-2008, 2,4GHz, 2GB RAM, SuperDriveDVD player=HL-DT-ST DVDRW GSA-S10N) running SnowLeopard 10.6.4.

The DVDs were burned, a couple of years ago, on the white MB and contain a copies of files from my user (administrator) directory, mostly iWork and MSOffice files.

I am able to read the contents of the DVDs and open the individual files on the white MB but not on my MBPro: when I insert the disk, a finder window appears saying I have inserted a blank DVD and asks me how I wish to proceed in using it.

There many ways to recover the files, not least using the MB I created them with, but I would like to understand why this is occurring. Anyone have any ideas?

PowerPC :: Ibook G4 Won't Read DVDs - How To Know About It

Sep 3, 2007

my ibook doesn't read dvds anymore like it used to, but it will read blank ones if i use an external dvd drive, but when i try and insert a normal dvd (ive tried a lot of dvds so its not just one disc) in the laptop drive or the external one, it says "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer." and gives me an option to ignore or eject.

i tried creating a new account, but the same thing happened, so i used my install disks to install mac os x on an external drive and booted from that and the disk worked! but, ive got lots of important data on the laptop drive, so im stuck here.

Windows On Mac :: DVDs Read Slowly On XP?

Jul 31, 2009

I have Windows XP 32 bit running under bootcamp on my early 2008 Macbook Pro.

I think the problem started last week, when I was burning about 4 isos on 4 different DVDs. Then after that I wanted to watch a movie on a dvd while I was still on Windows, but whenever I start the movie the mouse pointer would move slowly and the movie would get choppy. Even when I'm transferring files from a CD to Windows the files would take longer than usual to finish copying.

So I switched to Mac OS and tried playing the movie again from the dvd. When it played I noticed that it's playing normally and it's not a hardware issue that I'm having. So I thought that the problem was gone and I should check if the dvd would run smoothly on Windows like it's running under Mac OS. But when I tried it on Windows the problem was still there, the dvd is still running slowly.

MacBook Pro :: Can No Longer Read DVDs Or CDs

Mar 21, 2012

I am running OSX 10.7.3. Yesterday all my thousands of fonts completely disappeared from Suitcase Fusion 2. I was told by Extensis that I could not get them back, but that I needed to upgrade to Fusion 3 which would be compatible with Lion. I did that. When I tried to get my stored fonts off the CDs and DVDs I'd stored them on all the CDs appeared to be blank and I got a message on the DVD that it cannot be read on my computer. (I have used all these CDs and DVDs before.)

Mac Mini :: Does Not Read CDs / DVDs (Optical Media)

Jul 2, 2009

I have a 2009 2.0 C2D Mac Mini that I upgraded to 4 GB RAM from the standard 1 GB RAM. It does not read CDs/DVDs or any other optical media. When I check the profiler for the SATA connection, I get:

OPTIARC DVD RW AD-5670S:
Model:OPTIARC DVD RW AD-5670S
Revision:2AHF
Native Command Queuing:No
Detachable Drive:No
Power Off:No
Async Notification:Yes

When I check the profiler for disc burning, I get:

OPTIARC DVD RW AD-5670S:

It seems the controller is good and is seeing the DVD drive, but it just won't read anything included DVD movies and CDs that I bought off the shelf.

OS X :: Burning Data DVDs - Discs Not Able To Read By Mac

Nov 28, 2009

I'm having issues with burning data DVDs on my Mackbook Pro (running Snow Leopard) I'm burning large files (DVD/Blu-Ray rips) and the discs are unreliable. I'm trying to pinpoint the problem but haven't been able to. Some of the discs are not able to be read by the Mac - sometimes it spits the disc out a few seconds after being inserted...other discs just spin and spin and spin and it seems the Mac cannot read them - I can't even eject them without rebooting the computer. There seems to be no rhyme or reason between discs that read OK and discs that don't. Some discs were burned via the internal superdrive and some via a Sony USB dual layer burner. All discs burn and verify OK - there was no indication on any of them that anything went wrong. I am using Sony and Memorex discs, single and dual layer. Are there any known issues with either the Mac superdrive, or the burning of large (4+ GB - almost 8 GB) single files? I've got a good number of discs here and like I said all burned OK...but I've been having to go back to retrieve files and am only now finding that some of the discs are giving the problems described above, which means many of the backups I thought were legit are no good. Alternatively, if there is a better method for backing up these files . They are stored on hard drives being used by a streaming video player. I thought backing up each file to DVD would be a reliable backup method but apparently this is not the case. It's not ideal to back up to other hard drives - there are too many files and it would be too expensive. I don't know that online backups would be feasible because of the amount of time it would take to upload them and the space they would take up would likely be too expensive to maintain.

Mac Pro :: Superdrive Won't Read DVDs After Lion Update?

Feb 24, 2012

Ever since I updated my '10 Mac Pro to Lion (months ago), my original built in superdrive will not read any DVD's or CD's, commercial or not, that have data on them... It simply assumes the disk is blank when it clearly isn't.  Now, if I insert a blank DVD and burn it, it works like a charm... but it will then NOT read the disk that it just burned???  How and why did Lion break my superdrive?

MacBook Pro :: 13" Won't Read Some Bought DVDs?

Mar 12, 2012

my 2009 13" MBP (OS X 10.6.8, Optiarc DVD RW AD-5960S) won't accept some purchased/rented DVDs. The drive makes funny noises (mrrrrrp-mrrrrp....) for 1-2 minutes and then ejects the DVD. The DVD cannot be ejected manually during that time.OS and software are up to date, lens is clean, hardware has been checked, same DVDs will play on my linux box, on stand-alone players and on several win boxes. The problem occurs with some DVDs only (1/3 of all rented/purhased DVDs). Some won't play in 9 out of 10 tries and then suddenly will.Is there a solution for this?

Intel Mac :: DVD Player Doesn't Recognise DVDs. Keeps Ejecting?

May 13, 2012

I've been having problems with my iMac recently, more precisely with my DVD drive. I think it's a software problem, and no mechanical problem. Let me explain: 

When I insert a DVD:

- it will sometimes work perfectly. I can read, burn or whatever I feel like…

- it will sometimes not work. I don't know why, but the drive gives a few try (mechanical noises), and than ejects the DVD. If I try a few more times to reinsert it, it will sometimes just keep the DVD and not eject it, without recognizing it. When I try to open the Disk Utility program, it will simply froze. Or it will open after 5 minutes, but the DVD player will not exist and not appear. 

I need to restart the computer. Sometimes it will work after the restart. Sometimes not. It's really random, and I haven't found out on what it depends… Sometimes, when I reboot it because of a trapped-unrecognized DVD, the DVD player will not open. "Initialization error [-70012]"… 

I've tried Option-Cmd-P-R at the Start, but it didn't help… I feel like there's something wrong with the software. 

It's a 2 years old iMac, using Snow Leopard (Mac OS X 10.6.8). 

I've tried looking on the net, but a lot of people are experiencing mechanical problems (it simply never works), which I think is not the case here (it does randomly work perfectly).

iMac (24-inch Early 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8)

Intel Mac :: 'superdrive' Doesn't Read Or Recognize Film Dvds

May 8, 2012

Nothing appears on the desktop, and the DVD doesn't play (this is the second DVD I've tried).  The drive works to download software though.  These are commercial DVDs from Lovefilm in the UK - there are bound to be some scratches - does this mean I can only play new DVDs? 

Also, if I click Finder to eject the DVD, the command is light gray, meaning the IMAC has not actually registered that there's a DVD in the drive, so I have to log off and on again for the DVD icon to appear on the desktop, at which point I can eject it.  However, if I click it, it doesn't play. I'd really like to play films if I can. 

I don't know what operating system I have, except that it's MAC OS X. I only just got it new two days ago.

MacBook Pro :: Super-drive Plays DVDs But Won't Read Software

May 21, 2012

I am trying to restore my MacBook Pro, but when i insert the OS install disc, it just spins and spins and spins, tells me the disc is blank, and ejects it. I tried using other installation discs (MS Office, Adobe Creative Suite, Final Cut),and had the exact same result. My drive will play DVDs without any problems. What do you suppose is wrong? I have tried resetting the PRAM and SMC to no avail.

Applications :: IPhoto Unable To Read Files From A Normal Folder

Nov 12, 2008

I'm a longtime PC user who just got a macbook. I copied all my picture files to my macbook and opened up iPhoto. I used the "Import to Library" option to load all my pictures. I noticed that iPhoto copied all my photos to a Photo Library file under the Pictures folder.

Why does iPhoto make copies of the pictures and store them in a separate "file"? This makes it confusing because I have all the pictures that I originally copied but then when I'm in iPhoto, the program is actually accessing the pictures from this separate location.

- Is iPhoto not able to just read files from a normal folder structure?

- How do I manage/organize individual picture files if I'm not within iPhoto?

- How do I burn picture files to a CD/DVD if I can't see the individual pictures when not in iPhoto?

Applications :: Unable To Burn Dvds In Toast / Sense Key And Sense Code?

Jan 26, 2009

I use Toast to burn DVDs. But recently my MBP Superdrive has been refusing to play ball. Whenever I insert a DVD and set up Toast to start the burn, I get:

Sense Key = MEDIUM ERROR
Sense Code = 0x73, 0x0x

I also own an external DVD/CD drive (USB2) which I use with my little ASUS. So, I plugged my external drive into my Mac and tried Toasting again. But:

Sense Key = MEDIUM ERROR
Sense Code = 0x73, 0x03

So, either my Superdrive is fragged, or my external drive is fragged, or both. But the external works fine with my ASUS. And it sounds like a longshot both are fragged with the Mac. Maybe the DVDs I'm trying to burn to are fragged. Or it's a software glitch in Toast. Or....

my Superdrive is fragged for writing. Other posters have had problems with their Superdrives too. BUT my external is fine. So it must be either Toast or the DVDs, right?
