MacBook Pro :: SuperDrive Accepts Disk And Ejects Them Two Seconds Later?

Aug 12, 2010

I have never had any problems with this SuperDrive, until I installed Toast last week. I went to burn a disk, and it failed the burn; then after that any kind of disk I inserted into the drive would be ejected.

The drive doesn't even try to read it, nor does it try to spin up whatsoever... I put the disk in, it makes an 'accepting' noise, then less than two seconds later, it rejects it. I'm running 10.6.4, with HL-DT-ST DVDRW GSA-S10N running AP12 firmware.

Like I said before, the disk drive never had trouble reading anything, but all of a sudden decided to reject every one under the sun.

Restarting in Windows doesn't effect it, nor does inserting a disk before the computer boots. Everything appears normal in diagnostics, but the drive is not even trying to read it.

OS X Mavericks :: SuperDrive Ejects CDs Without Reading Them

Sep 10, 2014

I reset the System Management Controller and it didn't work, and I'm wondering if there's anything else I can try, or if there's a way to definitively determine if my SuperDrive is dead --- I don't MIND replacing the drive, but I don't want to replace a mis-diagnosed good one.

I have an iMac now powered by OS X Lion. But the problem is that when I try to insert a disk the superdrive accepts it but it doesn't show in the desktop. And after 30 seconds the disk is automatically ejected. I have tried restarting the PC a lot of time. The problem persists with all cds and dvds.

OS X :: Disk Ejects On Sleep And Won't Stop Spinning?

Feb 24, 2010

I replaced my superdisk with a 500 Gb Seagate drive in an optibay enclosure (unibody MBP running 10.6.2). The drive mounts fine on startup, and has not exhibited any unpredictable behavior in the file system, but it frequently ejects and provides me with this unhelpful message:The disk was not ejected properly. If possible, always eject a disk before unplugging it or turning it off. To eject a disk, select it in the Finder and choose File . Eject. The next time you connect the disk, Mac OS X will attempt to repair any damage to the information on the disk.

Once the drive ejects it is not visible in disk utility. I can hear it spinning continuously, but cannot access the drive. Moreover, I cannot access the drive unless I fully shut down the system and then reboot. A restart is often not sufficient to get the drive back up, but a full shutdown has worked every time so far.

The behavior seems to happen when the computer sleeps. I noticed that it would also happen sometimes if I handled the computer roughly by setting it down jarringly, so I took the whole thing apart, and reseated the drive within the enclosure, but the drive still ejects frequently, about once per day.

Hardware :: SuperDrive Will Not Burn Disk On MacBook

Mar 3, 2008

I've got a MacBook that is a couple of years old now. I'm trying to burn about a dozen copies of some audio from a conference I ran. I've tried burning directly from iTunes and by using Toast. In both cases it's hit and miss. Sometimes I'll get one or two copies burned, and then an error message will come up saying that the disk can't be burned. The error messages are different with both programs, but in either case, I'm stuck. The MacBook is no longer under warranty, so I'd like to avoid having to take it in to be repaired. Could it be something as simple as needing to be cleaned?

OS X :: White Macbook Accepts 3GB Memory Upgrade But NOT 4GB?

Feb 25, 2009

I have just taken delivery of a new white Macbook and I upgraded HD to WD Scorpio Blue 500 GB HD and memory to Corsair VSA4GSKIT667C4 Mac Memory 4GB 2 X 2GB PC2-5300 667MHz200 -Pin SODIMM for apple laptops.

It would not work even after correctly reinstalling the new memory a number of times

I decided to put back the original memory but by mistake I installed one old dimm and one new dimm and the computer then installed Mac OS X on the new HD and works OK.

Info shows 3GB of Memory = 1 x 2 GB and 1 x 1 GB.

Why will it not accept 4 GB?

Mac Pro :: SuperDrive Will Not Mount Any Disk

Apr 12, 2012

I have a mac pro 2.8 Ghz Quad-Core Intel Xeon box. Tonight I replace my 8 g memory sticks with 16g memory sticks. After rebooting my super drive will no longer mount any disk that is put in the tray. I close the tray then after several seconds the try pops back open. I have tried cleaning the drive with a cleaning disk, it does not work. No sound comes from the drive, in other words I don't hear it attempt to spin up. The super drive shows up in disk utility and under Disc Burning in system information.

OS X :: SuperDrive Only Reads Disk On Second Attempt

Apr 8, 2009

My MBP has been acting up lately. It seems that whenever I put a DVD into my drive, it sounds like the computer is reading it or attempting to and then spits it back out. When I put the dvd back in a second time, it reads it just fine and mounts it on desktop without any problems. Doesnt seem to matter what kind of dvd it is; game, movie, etc. The SuperDrive only reads it when I put the disk in the second time. I'm running 10.5.6.

The drive does appear to be making an odd bleaping. I have tried resetting the PRAM and cannot get it to bleap?

PowerPC :: Cannot Insert Disk On IBook SuperDrive / Solution For This?

Aug 13, 2006

The last time I tried to insert a disk it would not go in, something (not a disk) was stopping it once it had traveled about half way in.

I then noticed that when waking from sleep or turning on, the normal noise was very different, cut short, and sounded like it was struggling against something.

I believe the mechanism of the drive has somehow failed. Does anyone have any solutions?

It is a iBook G4 1.33GHz with 1.25GB ram installed if that helps.

MacBook :: Superdrive Not Responding But Need "Disk Repair"

Aug 23, 2010

It's been almost over 6 month, I didn't run "Disk Utility" on my Early 2006 Tiger MacBook.

As of tonight, I I just run "Verify Disk" .... FAILED to complete. So it won't let me click "Repair Disk" (inactive; no way to click).

That means I have to use my Tiger DVD boot up from superdrive!

Problem is my superdrive has been not responding at all for a couple of month. Since I don't use it at all, I didn't care.

... but now I need to run my Tiger original DVD

What should I do?

Please let me know how to proceed to repair my HD without using superdrive as it is not working. Any alternative?

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Wireless Internet Connects For A Few Seconds Then Disconnects  For A Few Seconds?

Jun 29, 2012

I am using a Mac Mini with a Realtek USB wireless dongle to connect to the internet. The software and drivers appear connected perfectly and i see the wireless utility and I can access my wireless network, which says signal strength 100%. I connect to it and it accepts the wireless key. Says connected. Then after a few seconds the connection is lost and it says 'Disconnected'. A few seconds later it connects then disconnects and this continues indefinitely but Safari never allows me to access any webpages.

MacBook Air :: Slightly Ticker With Superdrive Or Slightly Thinner Without Superdrive?

Jul 27, 2008

I was thinking, for the next generation MacBook Air, would you want a slightly thicker (thickest part is 0.9in, tinnest is ~0.35in) laptop with a built in Superdrive, more ports, etc, or would you perfer that Apple moves away from this with a thinner computer (0.1in thinnest, 0.6in thickest), but with same limited ports.

I would actually perfer thicker with a superdrive, since I want an air but I want it to be like a MacBook but thinner. What do you think? Btw, this is assuming the regular MacBook does not change in size, since that would sway peoples opinions.
