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2)My warranty is no longer valid [expired 1 month ago..].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 :: 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.

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?

MacBook Air :: Flash Drive Stopped Showing Up Completely After Plugging It Into And Ejecting It From PC

Dec 10, 2014

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. I have the latest OS (Yosemite, 10.10.1) and a 13in, mid 2012 mac air.The flashdrive is a Sony 32gb URL....

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 :: Ejecting Disk From Alu Macbook

Jan 22, 2009

Might sound like a simple question apart from the fact that i've been trying to eject the disc (for the last 10 mins) which I stupidly inserted (thinking it would work fine)... its spinning inside, quite loud (although doesn't sound nasty)its not showing up on the computer at all and I am unable to use the 'eject' button on the keyboard.

OS X :: Why Key Dedicated Just To Ejecting CD

Jan 23, 2009

Why does the eject key only work for whatever's in the SuperDrive? I mean really, a key dedicated just to ejecting a CD? How does that make sense? I eject my iPhone 10x as much as I eject something out of the SuperDrive. What I think they should do is have the eject key bring up a menu of all drives that can be ejected, along with an eject all option. It's a huge pain going to the Finder, ejecting my externals, then going to iTunes to eject the iPod and iPhone.

Hardware :: DVD Drive Keeps Ejecting?

Jun 26, 2008

I've noticed some weird behavior with the Superdrive on my MacBook Pro recently.

My system is

MacBook Pro 2.2GHZ Intel Core2 Duo, 4GB RAM, 200 GB HDD

it's about six months old but gets a *lot* of use.

I notice that the superdrive will sometimes randomly eject a DVD drive after it has been inserted. Last week it took me up to 10 minutes to insert a DVD - I had to keep trying to reinsert it, then I finally rebooted a couple of times and it eventually worked. Sometimes when I bring my laptop back from sleep it ejects the DVD for no reason. I also notice that sometimes when playing a DVD, it will freeze up in full screen mode. I have to hit the power button and reboot as the laptop is completely frozen at this point - this has happened a couple of times in the past few weeks, I think it's related to the random ejects.

Software :: Ejecting DVD If All Else Fails

Mar 3, 2006

I was absolutely relieved, after many painful minutes of troubleshooting, to find in Mac OS Help the section titled "Ejecting a DVD if All Else Fails." I'd never heard of this procedure before, but it sure saved my skin. This is what you do:
1. Hold down the keys Command + Option + O + F while restarting your computer
2. You will be prompted with a white screen that says "Welcome to Open Firmware" instead of the normal Mac OS screen.
3. Type "eject CD" without quotes.
4. CD will eject and the screen will then say "OK."
5. Type "mac-boot" without quotes to finish booting Mac OS and return to your usual startup screen.

You're done and the CD/DVD has been successfully ejected. The above method was the only thing that saved me. I tried everything--and I do mean everything. The darn DVD would NOT eject. So, if any of you are ever in the same boat, now you know what to do. Just thought I'd share this will you all. What could've caused the DVD to get stuck in my iBook? The specific DVD was the Sims 2 DVD game. I bought it used and it was the first time I put it in my computer. After I finally got it to eject by using the aforementioned method, I re-inserted the DVD to see if it would work--and it worked fine. Ejected by simply pressing the Eject key on my keyboard, no problem! What do you think happened that first time? Oh, and if this helps, every time I tried to eject it, I got a message saying that it was in use and could not be ejected. It was not in use, trust me. I waited a long time and the DVD had stopped spinning and the game was long quit.

MacBook Pro :: Plugged Up A Different HDD To The Right Side / Ejecting And Reconnecting From Time To Time?

Jul 6, 2009

After a few months of confusion, I think one of my USB ports is dying. I had been plugging a My Passport HDD into my left USB port and a fan/hub (plus other things into the hub) into the right USB port. I had been having problems using Time Machine even with a HDD attached to my computer, so I figured the HDD was bad. I bought a new one (Seagate 1.5TB at $120) and planned on using another 500GB drive I have for Time Machine.

At the same time, I had been plugging my new iPhone 3GS into either ports on a hub on that right port chain or directly into it. The phone would eject and reconnect a lot when doing that. When I tried it on the left USB port or even connected to that hub coming off the left port, no problems. I plugged up a different HDD to the right side. It also began ejecting and reconnecting from time to time.I think my USB port is going bad, but I'm not sure because I have never had one that worked well and then stopped on a factory-built system. The only other time I had problems was when I bought a big, fancy PC case with about 800 ports and one or two out of 500 on the front wouldn't work. This is a much bigger problem on a MacBook Pro. If this port does sound bad, would it be worth investing in an ExpressCard USB port card? I have a good 4 or 5 devices that I need plugged in, but I think I can manage using the fan/hub device for most of it.
