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?

Info:
Macbook Pro 13", Mac OS X (10.6.4)

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 :: Can't Read Just Burned DVD-DL

Apr 16, 2012

I just burned a disk image to a Verbatim DVD-DL, using Disk Utility. My MBP 2.3 GHz, 2Gb Ram will NOT read this disk and ejects it, but another newer MBP will indeed read and mount this disk.I restarted the problematic MBP, repaired permissions, and said PLEASE.Still no luck.Before I burn it again with a fresh DVD-DL blank, what could cause this? The DVD drive in this unit works perfectly fine, under normal circumstances.

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?

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

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?

PowerBook G4 15", PowerMac G5 Dual 2.5
Mac OS X (10.4.9)

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.

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?

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

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.

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.

OS X V10.7 :: Change Mail Preview In Lion From A Vertical Read To A Horizontal Read?

Apr 22, 2012

I just switched from Snow leopard to Lion and i don't like the way that Lion has the mail preview set up as a 3 column vertical format. I thought in Snow Leopard you could change the set-up so it's either horizontal or vertical, but I can't seem to find that option in Lion. I want to have the list of my email messages in the top, horizontal window and the preview of the selected message in a horizontal window below. Am I missing this option to change the view format from vertical to horizontal somewhere?

I know this is lame, but I searched and can't find a solution. When I click on a day in ical it says it is a Read-only calendar. I repaired permissions, but it still says read only. The strange part is, in the Get Info screen, it says Read-Write for all the users.

Hardware :: What Format Write / Read And PC Read?

Jun 16, 2009

I'm buying an external hard drive to use as a backup for my MacBook but also as a network drive that all the computers connected to my router (Airport Extreme) can use. There are two MacBooks and two PCs that connect to the network. I only need my MacBook to be able to write to the hard drive but I need the two PCs to be able to access and use the files on the hard drive. I was going to get a 1TB external and give it two partitions. The first partition is going to be the Time Machine backup for my MacBook and the other will be accessed by all computers on the network. What format will the second partition need to be so that both MacBooks and both PCs can view and use the files? Also what external hard drive would you recommend?
