Mac Mini :: Cannot Read Leopard Superdrive Disk

Dec 28, 2009

I am trying to upgrade my Dad's mac mini to Snow Leopard and have encountered a problem. When I insert the Leopard disk I cannot get it to read the disk, the box comes up as if I have inserted a blank DVD. I have also tried inserting ilfe09 disk and have the same problem. The drive does appear to be making an odd bleaping. I have tried resetting the PRAM and cannot get it to bleap?

MacBook Pro :: Disk Drive Won't Read Or Eject

Jun 4, 2012

I put a cd in the slot drive to burn to my itunes. At first it seemed to behave as normal, it sucked the disk in, made noise, all that good stuff. Well I went to itunes to find the disk and it didn't show. It didn't show up in finder either. I decided to eject and try again, but the disk wouldn't eject. Since then there's been no noises from the drive. It seems like the drive just died, like it's not even trying to start up or work. The cd is literally a week old, and has been in my car cd player since I bought it, so I know the disk is clean. Also, I used the drive a week or two ago to burn several disks and had no problems with it. All my software is up to date and it reads the drive as being there, it just doesn't work. 

I've spent a few hours troubleshooting this. Like I said, the computer doesn't even seem to realize there's a disk in the drive. I've tried restarting while  holding down the mouse (well, trackpad actually), repairing permissions, blowing in compressed air, tried ejecting with terminal, gravity, resetting the SMC, and probably a couple other things I'm forgetting.

IMac (Intel) :: Superdrive Does Not Read Some Of Music CDs

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 :: Superdrive Stopped Working - Fine Before Installing Lion

Mar 31, 2012

I have a 2 year old MacBook Pro and the superdrive has stopped working, it won't take discs in as if there is one already inside but iTunes or the dvd player doesn't recognise that there is a disc inside and if there is it can't be ejected, I have tried shutting down and restarting while holding down the trackpad, as recommended on some forums but that has done nothing. It might be a huge coincidence but the drive was working fine before I installed lion?

Intel Mac :: Super-drive Unable To Eject Disk?

May 13, 2012

I have a iMac (iMac7,1) Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz that is 5 years old.  The MATSHITADVD-R UJ-875 (DB09) Superdrive has been replaced once already.  It is malfucntioning again.  I was wondering if there were any troubleshooting steps I could take that I am unaware of before I replace the drive.   

It seems to be a mechanical issue.  The drive attempts to eject a disk - it sound like the disk is ejecting, yet it cannot.  It keeps attempting to eject the disk over and over again.  It has happened with a number of different disks, often after some time the disk will eventually eject. This time this one seems to be stuck for good. [URL]

IMac (Intel) :: Played Disk In ITunes But Then Could Not Get It To Eject?

Jun 5, 2014

My husband (who has my old iMac) inserted a CD that a friend gave him into his disk drive. He played the disk in iTunes, but then could not get it to eject. I came over to "help" and after clicking the eject button in ITunes and then holdiing the eject button on the keyboard down for some time, the drive is stuck in kind of a loop trying to eject the CD.  Here are the things that we have tried: 

restarting the iMac

shutting it down and rebooting after waiting a while

shutting it down and unplugging it. Waiting for a while and then plugging it back in and rebooting

rebooting while holding the eject button down (on keyboard)

resetting the PRAM by holding down option-command-p-r while booting

drutil eject -drive internal in Terminal Mode

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.

PowerPC :: G4 Combo Drive Works Fine But Not Eject Properly

Dec 15, 2006

I found this iBook in my dad's attic at his business. He said he had bought when they released and planned on using it for financial stuff, but figured his Windows laptop would do better. It was in its box BTW, not collecting dust.

Anyways, it's out of warranty and it's specs are:
1.07 GHz PowerPC G4
Combo drive
12" screen

The combo drive is not fun. It takes a good push, no shove, into the slot for it to go in. It reads it fine and all, and can burn CD's, but pulling it out is plain horrible. I can't just take it and pull it out, I have to have my dad hold the iBook, and I grab the CD and pull it out. The CD ends up having deep scratches and is unreadable from then on. What do I do? Replace it? Or is it repairable?

MacBook Air :: Superdrive Can't Read CD

May 17, 2012

I have a Macbook Air, Version 10.7.2 with a superdrive. Upon inserting a CD with photos on it, I could not find the CD in the finder. However when I inserted the CD into an older mac, the CD showed up on the desktop with all its photos. The superdrive runs DVD's fine, any reason why it would not run the CD? Anything I can do to make it read the CD?

Power Mac G5 :: SuperDrive Will Not Read Any Media

Oct 24, 2007

I have a Dual 2.5 GHz PowerMac G5 and out of nowhere the SuperDrive suddenly won't read anything. I put in a CD or DVD and it'll make a short whirring sound about every 4-5 seconds and then after the third time it automatically ejects the disc. Is my drive dead? The computer is still covered under my AppleCare protection plan. Do I need to just bring it in and have it replaced?

Mac Pro :: Superdrive - Hangs While Trying To Read Disc

Oct 22, 2010

I am having an issue where the superdrive in my BRAND NEW mac pro isn't working correctly. It doesn't read DVD's consistently, System profiler hangs when you click on disc burning and after that the drive does not respond to eject commands. When you do get the tray to open, insert a DVD that is a known good disc, it will "mount" on the desktop then when you click on it, it hangs trying to read the disc. When you right click and select eject, the icon just goes away and the disc does not eject. A restart at least allows me to eject the disc. Resetting SMC has no effect on the drives behaviour. Or suggest a good aftermarket DVD drive?

Mac Pro :: Vista 64-bit - Superdrive Can't Read Discs?

Feb 27, 2008

I just got a Mac Pro (2006/2007) and Installed Vista Ultimate x64 from a DVD. When I rebooted and got to the Vista desktop, it no longer lets me used the superdrive. I can eject it from Vista but when I insert a disc, all it does is spin up forever and lock up Vista.

I have reloaded Vista 3 times and get the same issue. Everything else works except the superdrive.

MacBook Pro :: Burned CD Won't Read In Superdrive?

Apr 7, 2012

When I was discharged from the hospital recently, they gave me a disc with all of my x-rays.  Unfortunately, the disc won't read in my MBP.  It inserts just fine, spins for a second, but never actually mounts on the desktop.  When I eject the disc, I see the cd mount image briefly appear on the desktop before the disc pops out. 

how I can get this disc to mount without pulling out my crusty windows laptop?
