Desktops :: MAC Only Reads OS Discs / Won't Read Other Disks

Dec 17, 2010

I have an older Power Mac G5 that I had problems with, and hoped I could get a little help.I wanted to start fresh, so I booted the Mac OSX software disk that came with the computer, and I was able to get my computer back to factory fresh (software-wise). After I reloaded the OSX (and did all of the software updates from Apple), I tried loading a program from an original installation CD/DVD. It would not load--it tried, but eventually ejected the disk. This happened over and over--I tried different types of discs (music CDs, DVDs, software), and the ONLY CDS/DVDs that work are the MAC OSX installation discs. I have tried using a DVD lense cleaner and compressed air.

Desktops :: Mac Pro Suddenly Not Recognizing Discs / No Mountable Filesystems

Sep 28, 2010

Hopefully this is the correct place to post my question. Yesterday I inserted a movie DVD into the internal drive of my MacPro 3,1 and received the error message, "The disc you inserted is not readable by this computer". I tried several different movie discs, some old, some new releases I just purchased and I get the same message. Data discs work fine but not movie DVDs.

I also noticed that my Mac can no longer mount an ISO or DMG file. I get an error saying "No Mountable filesystems". I have repaired permissions, restarted, disconnected all external peripherals, etc. Pretty much all the basic stuff you try when your Mac isn't behaving as you'd expect. The odd thing is that it just started behaving this way within the last two days. DVDs played fine before and I could mount any ISO or DMG file. Only thing that is different is I ran the most recent security update from Apple when it popped up.

Mac Pro :: Not Reading Any Discs - Make High Pitch Sound And Eject

Jul 14, 2008

I just purchased a mac pro about 4 months ago and I love it, I have never had a problem with it until today, I went to install a new program on it and it did not even read it, it made a hi pitched sound for a short time then stopped, waited about 10 seconds did the same thing. After a couple times of doing this it would eject the disc, so I figured I would try another disc, I have tried many different discs such as games, cds, programs and nothing has worked.

Desktops :: Unable To Eject Disk Form Drive On Imac?

Sep 2, 2010

I'm using a desktop IMac 15" and have come up against a problem I can't solve. I selected the disk drive as the start-up drive. Put the wrong disk in the drive and it is unable to start the comp. Now I have a blank screen and cannot eject the disk.

This is the first MAC I've ever had that does not have manual ejection for the disk drive.

What can I do short of ripping the cases apart?

Desktops :: Can't Remove Screws To IMac Memory Compartment?

Oct 31, 2009

I have a 2.0 GHz Intel Core Duo 20 inch iMac (early 2006). I have purchased additional memory that I want to install but when I try to remove the cross point screws holding the cover plate over the memory compartment they will not budge. I am afraid to squirt them with WD40 since I fear overspray would probably go into the memory compartment. I am also afraid to "bump" the screws by tapping the end of the screwdriver with a hamer since the shock might damage the drives. Have anyone of you had this difficulty? If so how did you solve it.

OS X :: Lost Discs - Install Discs From The Computer

Mar 10, 2009

I came home for vacation and decided to reformat my imac g5 to get a fresh start. I backed up all my files, took out my leopard retail box, and was ready to go when I opened up the box, and noticed no disc. I have no idea where it went.I have the install discs from the computer when i got it, but it only has 10.4, so id rather not use them. I have the install discs from my macbook pro with 10.5, but I am pretty sure it will not work.So does anyone have any suggestions? Should I just go ahead and install 10.4 until and then just install 10.5 when i find it? (i really hate doing this, I hate having more than one version of an os installed)

Software :: Can't Eject Disk Images And No Right Click Eject Option?

Mar 3, 2008

I've been having problem with either Firefox or Safari and I download something and the dmg extracts and I'm left with the white casing shell where the app is housed and it won't eject. I can't eject it from finder but dumping it to the trash from finder took it off the sidebar. I can't get them off my desktop unless I restart my Mac.

I've noticed now that along with disk images not mounting for me anymore. My external drive images or DVD's won't eject either.

When I use right click with Mighty Mouse I don't even see an option anymore to eject that image. Is there any solution out there to fix this glitch? The work around I'm using is unmounting or ejecting images or disks from Disk Utility.

Why is this happening and how do I fix it? I'm using Leopard 10.5.2 and am on an intel iMac.

OS X :: Eject Button Missing In Finder - Unable To Eject Cd

Feb 22, 2009

i've had a Macbook for a couple years and I have some knowledge of OS X but this one has stumped me.My friend called me tonight and she told me on her new iMac that in the finder window, after clicking on Macintosh HD, the eject button was missing that should be next to the device.This apparently happened earlier today with a CD and happened when she called me with an External HDD.

She was however able to eject the stuff by either dragging it to the trash or doing "Open Apple" + E, key shortcut. I'm stumped on this because she was till able to eject the HDD or CD with the previous methods but the Finder, "eject" button for the devices was missing.

OS X :: Remove Unwanted Connected Guest / Remove From System With Disable Sharing

Jun 9, 2008

I've just noticed that in my Finder window sidebar, under "Shared", I have a character called Thomson listed. I don't know any Thomson and I bought the machine, an MBA, brand new. However, I did have an engineer instal the machine in my apartment and can only assume he's the mysterious Thomson. Anyway, whoever he/she is, I don't want him/her on my machine as Shared & "connected as guest". The point is, I cannot find a way to delete Thomson!! Can anyone help? I've tried System Preferences>Security and Accounts and there's no trace of Thomson there. Right clicking on Thomson in the sidebar of Finder only gives me the option to Open and Get Info. Most annoying, this. There MUST be a way to delete a Sharing but totally unwanted guest....

Intel Mac :: Why Won't It Take Discs

Jun 25, 2012

Whenever I place a disc in the drive it spits it out. No matter what disc.  I've tried restarting but that didn't work.  Just bought this 27" iMac about 2 years ago. I cost me around 2 grand with tax and some stuff the salesmen sold me to go with it like MIcrosoft office.  If the drive broke after only 2 years (and I've only used it maybe 10 times in all that time) then I will prob be asking for my money back.  I already know that apple will charge me out the @$$ to get it fixed if the drive is broke.  I am just hoping that there is something going on software wise that can be fixed. Please help if you have any information reguarding this issue.  This is a problem that is holding me back from doing work (a client sent me information via cd)  So I am loosing money every day that I do not have my drive working. 

iMac (27-inch Mid 2010), Mac OS X (10.7.4)

OS X :: Finding IBook SE OS9 Discs?

Sep 24, 2009

I couldn't find these original discs when I sold my old iBook SE (on ebay)... so naturally, I run across them a couple weeks later.

Does anybody need a set of original install CD's (including Hardware Test CD) for an iBookSE?

It's OS 9.0.4 Software Restore, Software Install, Apple Hardware Test

I'll hold them for a few days if someone wants them... if not, they go in the trash.
