MacBook :: Super Drive Not Play Audio CDs

Aug 12, 2009

The last couple of months my 2 year old white Macbook does not read audio cd's anymore. Once in a while it will load one, most of the time the first after a restart, but after that every audio cd will be ejected after several attempts of my superdrive to load the cd. Data cd and dvd's play just fine, and cd-r's can also be burned, no problems there.

MacBook Air :: Can Super Drive Work With Old One

May 26, 2012

I have an old black Macbook (about 6 years old, with all of the recent downloads, etc.). I am going to get a Mac Air Book and I wanted, before I bought the Mac Air Book, to try out the external Super Drive with my old MacBook (which is working fine for burning and reading CDS and DVDS) ... I plugged in the USB cable of my brand new Super Drive to my old MacBook but when I inserted the blank CD into the slot of the external Super Drive, the CD was not taken up by the SuperDrive. It went in perhaps 95 - 98% of the way but did not "take hold" the way I suspected it would.  I know that I don't need this Super Drive for my old MacBook but I wanted to see if it would work with it .. in anticipation for getting the Mac Air Book.  Does this mean that I have a defective Super Drive ? Or does it mean that it will only work with a MacAir Book ... or what ? I am sure there are some easy answers. Or should I force the CD harder into the Super Drive ?

MacBook Pro :: Retina Display And USB Super-drive?

Jun 19, 2012

Just wanted to let everyone know I had to update Mac OSX to be able to use the superdrive on the new macbook pro retina display.  Before that it would show me what was on the disk but I couldn't access it.  Even after I updated it I had to browse through finder to find the drive to be able to run what was on the disk, as it didn't pop up automatically.

MacBook Air :: VMware Fusion With Windows XP Without Super Drive?

May 13, 2008

I do NOT have the superdrive and would like to install windows XP pro on my MBA with VMware Fusion. I've tried making .dmg, .iso, & .cdr images of the windows XP disc but i'm having NO luck with Fusion recognizing the disc image. When I create the new Virtual Machine I select "use disc image" and point to the appropriate disc image file. I keep getting a "no bootable device" error from fusion.

Can somebody who has successfully installed windows on an MBA without using a superdrive give me the step by step instructions you used...I'm getting pretty annoyed at this point.

MacBook Pro :: External DVD Enclosure That Works With Super Drive?

Jul 1, 2010

Okay so I'm thinking of putting a Intel SSD in my MacBook Pro 13" as soon the next generation is launched thus removing the SuperDrive in order to fit both drives. I haven't used it a lot of times but a few times I do need it and that's why I'm now asking this question.

What external DVD enclosure will work with the MBP SuperDrive if any and how will i eject the DVDs. I'm not going to shell out a 100 bucks plus shipping to Sweden for the MCE Optibay so that's out of question, however cheaper ebay alternative that ships to Sweden with reasonable shipping is okay.

Also while I'm here. I've been thinking about upgrading to 8GB ram kit however a friend of mine told me any ddr3 sodimm ram won't work which sounds weird but to be safe I'm asking if that's true? I'm thinking of buying a Corsair 8GB(2x4GB) 1333MHz kit.

MacBook Pro :: How To Get An Audio CD To Play

Apr 1, 2012

I've actually looked around the site and see others have had the same problem with their mac, unfortunately I don't have the technical expertise or the time to get stuck into the long winded and confusing steps required to sort this problem. There is no option for me to email an Apple worker and I didn't particularly want to post this here, but it seems it's either this or wait two days to have Apple call me... Not what I want at all.I have a Macbook Pro 13" late 2011, running OSX 10.7.2, which is two months old and in perfect condition. I upgraded from a Toshiba Satellite which cost me under 300 in 2008 and was excellent when it came to playing CDs... Funnily enough. After paying 999 on an admittedly fantastic laptop I am rather appalled that such an expensive piece of kit would be incapable of playing audio CDs when iTunes seems to be one of the largest selling points of the Macintosh. I am wondering if this fault is intentional as it may force iTunes users to resort to the iTunes store rather than importing CDs? I'm not expecting a solution to be posted on this thread, at least not one which I am capable of utilising, this is merely an attempt at venting my frustration over the issue seeing as I can't find an option to email Apple directly.

MacBook Pro :: Stripped 3.3mm Phillips Screw Holding Super Drive

Jul 20, 2010

So I was taking apart my MBP to reapply thermal paste on the chips and I accidentally stripped one of the screws holding the super drive to the chassis. It is a 3.3mm Phillips screw that is on the bottom right of the super drive if you are facing the screen when it is upright. The screw is heavily stripped as looks nothing like a + now. Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can do to remove it without damaging the rest of my MBP? I have 3 sets of high precision tools and they all are having a hard time with the screws on my MBP. My local Apple store was nice enough to order some new screws for me which i will be getting in a few days.

MacBook Pro :: Super-drive Plays DVDs But Won't Read Software

May 21, 2012

I am trying to restore my MacBook Pro, but when i insert the OS install disc, it just spins and spins and spins, tells me the disc is blank, and ejects it. I tried using other installation discs (MS Office, Adobe Creative Suite, Final Cut),and had the exact same result. My drive will play DVDs without any problems. What do you suppose is wrong? I have tried resetting the PRAM and SMC to no avail.

PowerPC :: Hard Drive Spins And Super Drive Make Noise - No Boot Up

Jan 7, 2010

My friend gave me his old Apple cube G4 + 15" Cinema display in like 1000 pieces. Its completely teared apart. I tried a lot, but it doesn't work. The original IDE cable wasn't included, so I bought one for 2 cents. It should work or not? Maybe the powersupply. I'm not sure. I don't believe actually that the hardware itself, like the motherboard is broken. When everything is into place and I connect the cube to the powersupply it boots immediately. I don't have to do anything. Harddrive spins and the superdrive makes some noise as well. This repeats itself every 5 seconds. The screen is connected and gets power through DVI, but no display. Both the cube and display have touch enabled buttons to switch it on, but they do not respond (I guess).. Motherboard gives 2 light. DS1 is green, DS2 is red.

OS X :: How To Play Audio From MacBook Pro To IMac

May 28, 2010

I am somewhat a new person using a mac and I know this can be done with a windows computer. I was wondering if there is a way to play audio sources from my MBP to an iMac while using the speaker on both computers. Does it revolve around the "Audio MIDI Setup"? In my workplace I can play my music when the customers are not around or if it is after hours. I have my iMac at one side of the store but i'm unable to hear it when I walk into the back. I wonder if I can play my music, from both computer at the same time.

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 "com.apple.finder.plist" and com.apple.sidebars.plist", 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 Pro :: OS X Yosemite (10.10) Cannot Play Audio Or Video

Dec 11, 2014

I'm talking about iTunes, YouTube, Facebook videos.. you name it, it isn't working. I can't load any videos or play any music. Nor can I hear any audio on things that were pre-loaded before the problem started. And it just happened out of the blue maybe an hour ago! I've tried reinstalling iTunes, my Shockwave player, my QuickTime player to no avail.

And just to be clear, I did check to see if my speakers were muted or not (they were/are not) and if my audio output's were funky (they don't seem to be). I'm about to restart my computer and see what happens then.

MacBook Pro :: Super Drive Unable To Read Discs / Makes Clicking Noise

Nov 8, 2010

I've been using this MBP since 2007, and, it's starting to fail me. I was using an external hdd on it since the internal one crashed, and, then the external one crashed. I just purchased a 250gig hdd which fits perfectly in my Macbook, but, now I have another issue that's been pressing me for some time that didn't bother me at all until now when I need to install Snow Leopard;

My Super Drive isn't reading discs at all, and, it's making this scary crackling noise. I uploaded a video on youtube of me putting 2 discs in it, 1 with content (World of Warcraft: The Frozen Throne) and the other without content (Just a blank CD).

Before I link the video, I'd like to note that I am apparently amazed by the laser seeing as how I point to it and make a note of it ._. URL

Mac Mini :: It Only Recognizes 1 Super-drive?

Mar 13, 2012

I have a mac mini server so it doesn't have a built in drive. I've been using a macbook air superdrive and it works wonderfully. I've had the need to queue up multiple copies and disc reads though recently, so I bought a second superdrive. (Less having to change discs, more automation while I'm away). The problem is, the mini only reads one superdrive?Both superdrives work individually if they're the only one plugged in, in all usb ports. But if both are plugged in, the 2nd one is not recognized and appears to not even have power as it won't accept a disc. how to make the mini see both devices and treat them both as active cd/dvd drives?
