MacBook Pro :: Why Is Computer Ejecting DVD Before It Is Done Burning

May 19, 2012

I created a movie in iMovie and now I am working in iDVD, I finished the project and have tried several times to burn it to a blank DVD. It goes through most of the process but right before it should be done burning it ejects the DVD.  So I've tried putting it back in and it does the something all over again.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Why Does Computer Keep Ejecting The Install Disk

Feb 11, 2012

I am trying to upgrade from leopard to snow leopard on my MacBook Pro. However, every time I insert the install disk, the machine whirs for a moment, and then ejects the disk with no error message. I tested my drive with a different dvd and it works just fine. All of my other software is up to date.

OS X :: How To Tell Computer To Use External Disk-burning Drive

Sep 22, 2009

how to tell my macbook pro (tiger os x 10.4) to read my new Lacie external dvd/cd-burning drive in order to burn a dvd, rather than the current internal apple one (which came with the mac upon purchasing and recently went kaput)? btw, I CAN see this Lacie's name-path when I go into the apple-icon's "about this mac/more info". Then, I can see the lacie drive's name-path either by accessing the Hardware's option of "FireWire" or "Disc Burning".

MacBook Pro :: Superdrive Keeps Ejecting Cd/dvds?

Sep 19, 2010

I own a macbook pro, mid 2009 and its superdrive was working fine till 3 days ago. Now, whenever I try to insert a CD or DVD, the drive doesn't read it at all and after 2'' it ejects it. I tried reseting SMC and PRAM with no luck. I also tried that "batmac" trick [hold the mac upside down] with no luck either except my neck is now damaged too..

So, two questions:

1)What could the damage be? It's not a lens thing since it doesn't even try to read the cddvd.

2)My warranty is no longer valid [expired 1 month ago..]. How much would it cost to replace it? I live in Greece and no Apple Store exists here yet. I must take it to my provider [authorized reseller], check it [don't know how much this is going to cost either] and have it replaced.

MacBook Pro :: USB Port Gone After Ejecting External HDD?

Mar 9, 2012

All software uptodate. I have strange issue with USB ports. After ejecting USB drive (external HDD, powered by USB bus), which worked perfectly, USB port does not recognize anything, nor providing power. Turning MBP off and then booting back solves this issue.

MacBook Pro :: Ejecting An External Drive?

Apr 6, 2012

I have a Seagate 500gb GoFlex external drive, which I'm using with Time Machine to backup my MacBook Pro. Now, when ever I eject the drive (by right clicking or dragging to trash) it appears to disconnect from my MacBook, but the drive itself continues running, i.e., the lights stay on and I can still here the fans / drive whirring away. This continues unless I pull the USB cable out. Is this normal? Should the drive completely shutdown upon ejecting? Or is simply 'ejecting' from the MacBook enough for 'safe' removal?

MacBook Pro :: Data DVD Not Mounting Or Ejecting

Jun 13, 2012

I have inserted a data DVV with 3 QT video files on it, roughly 1 GB each. It took a long time to mount, and then when trying to copy a QT file to the desktop it started but aborted giving an error message. Playing the the .mov file from the DVD itself was very slow and juddery. 

Having given up I now can't even eject the DVD. Force quiting and restarting has resulted in the DVD not mounting. Launching Disk Utility juts gives me the dreaded rainbow wheel.. 

How can I eject the DVD?

MacBook :: WD External Drive Randomly Ejecting?

Apr 19, 2012

I've seen several discussions on external drives randomly ejecting, but didn't see any concise resolution. I have a Western Digital Passport, P/N WD320ME-01 2209A, using the OEM USB (2.0 I think) cable (~12 inches long). My ~4 year old mac book is running OSX 10.7.3. I use this drive for Time Machine B/U. Seemed to work ok (no ejects) when Leopard was the OS, but, after going to Snow Leopard, and now Lion, I get 'disk improperly ejected' errors when trying to run TM, or ever Repair under Disk Utilities. I did get one good TM back up, under Lion, after reformating the drive [extended (journaled)], but the next time I tried to run TM I started getting the 'improperly ejected' errors. Don't know if there is an issue with Lion (and earlier SL), or with WD drives. The fact that it originally worked leads

MacBook Pro :: Optical Drive Noise - Ejecting Disk Three Times

Jan 28, 2009

I own a new MBP (October 2008 model) and just two days ago my optical drive has started making weird noises whenever I bring my computer out of sleep. It makes a noise like it is ejecting a disk three times, about once a second for 3 seconds. This is really annoying, especially when I use my computer to take notes during lecture because everyone looks to see who is the douche bag with the noisy computer disrupting class. Any suggestions?

After ejecting it from a PC, I went to plug it back into my Mac Air and it's not showing up anywhere. The files I need cannot be found through Spotlight, it's not showing up on the desktop or disk utility or the sidebar. I've tried it on other laptops so it may just be my flashdrive.

MacBook Pro :: Super Drive Failing To Read The Discs And Ejecting Them Within 30 Seconds

Dec 7, 2014

The Super Drive on my MBP seems to be completely busted, whenever I try to read a DVD or CD it takes the disc in, spins it around a couple of times and then ejects it again without ever coming up with any options as to what to do with the disc. Discs don't appear in Finder either. It's obviously failing to read the discs and ejecting them within 30 seconds. 

Now I've searched for a solution and as a result I've reset the NVRAM to no avail, and also tried using a CD lens cleaner but that seemed to have no effect either, I guess maybe as it got ejected within just 30 seconds as every other disc does. 

The next solution I've found online is to delete Finder's preference files. The files I'm supposed to delete are "" and", however neither of these files appear to exist on my computer.  

I remember discovering the fault while my MBP was still in warranty but I rarely use the Super Drive so totally forgot about it and it's now out of warranty

MacBook :: Can't Read DVD With Twice Burning

Why my mac (no matter iMac or macbook) can not read DVD data disk which was burned more than twice by Nero on Windows. My Mac can alway only read the data from first time burned.

For example, the DVD burned data A by Nero on Windows. Several days later I burned data B into the DVD. Then, it's data C.
