OS X :: CD Drive Not Reading And Ejecting Disk

Nov 9, 2009

I was trying to import a cd into my macbook pro this afternoon and it went in and clicked into place but then started making a huming sort of noise, but was you could hear it was not spinning, about 20 seconds later it ejected. I tried it multiple times and restarted my computer but nothing seemed to help. The disk drive isn't bent out of shape or anything and I've never had a problem with it until now.

MacBook :: Update Operating System To Snow Leopard / Disk Is Not Reading In Disk Drive

Jun 4, 2014

I have an old Macbook via 2007 and I'm trying to update my operating system (currently OS 10.5.8) to Snow Leopard, but the disk is not reading in the disk drive. And unfortunately, Snow Leopard is only on a DVD, it can't be downloaded.I figure I have 2 choices:

1) take it in and spend $49 to have them do diagnostics and then tell me they probably need to replace the superdrive 

2) I could buy an external optical drive. But I would need to know which one would be compatable with my old *** Macbook.

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?

I've done all the tried and true stuff. I have restarted, I've restarted and held down the shift key, etc. The disc just won't eject. I haven a PM G5 dual core. Should I just shut the damn thing down, remove the drive and get the disc out that way?

OS X :: Question Mark Folder And Ejecting Startup Disk?

Sep 30, 2007

My computger shows the flashing question mark in a folder icon upon booting just after the chime. I've been reading up all about it and am pretty clear about what actions I should take.

The very first direction that all instructions give me is to insert the Startup CD, shut down, and then restart holding down the 'C' key. The problem I'm encountering is that a little while after starting up, the computer ejects the CD, and then goes onto show the flashing question mark again. I'm pretty sure i'm inserting the correct CD as it does itself have the directions to hold down 'C' for booting from CD printed on it. I've tried the other CD which came with my MacBook too, but the same result.

I've booked a slot with a Genius on Tuesday, but does anyone have any suggestions as to why it would be ejecting the CD?

p.s I've also tried to boot in target disk mode, and although the attached PowerBook sees the harddrive in disk utility, the repair utilities are greyed out, and it doesn't see it in finder so can't access the contents.

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.

OS X :: Not Reading The Leopard Install Disk?

Jan 10, 2008

My husband and I bought the family edition of Leopard last night, along with iLife08. I installed iLife while he installed Leopard. No problems on either Mac.

However, when I went to install Leopard, once I double clicked to start the install, it seems like my Mac won't "read" the disk. I get the spinning rainbow and there's lots of chugging sounds happening, but after almost an hour (yeah, I'm patient), it was pretty apparent that nothing was actually happening.

I'm really perplexed...it's not a disk problem, as it installed fine on my husband's Macbook...and it's not a drive issue as iLife installed just fine a few minutes before trying Leopard.

Mac Pro :: Dvd Drive Not Responding Or Ejecting After Blu-ray Drive Added?

May 5, 2012

I bought and installed a Bluray drive and have it connected Via one of the 2 extra SATA under the fan assembly. Heres my problem after installing it the second drive won't eject Via the keyboard command (Option +Eject Key) but the bluray drive ejects with either that command or the basic eject key. I still have the second drive (The DVD Drive) connected with the second cable connector on the ATA cable. Should I have connected it to the first/top cable connector instead? and ever since I added the bluray drive my dvd drive has been hanging or refusing to eject discs unless I restart my mac then it will eject it on startup?

Software :: Reading DVD - System Cannot Recognize Disk At All

Mar 13, 2009

My son made me a DVD-r of mp3 files and a dvd on his new mac. I cannot get it to read on my system. Other CDs and dvds work fine so know disk drive is ok. I have tried the disk on windows based computers and it works fine. Is my computer too old to read or do you have a suggestion on how to read? When I insert the disk, nothing comes up on the desktop to click on to read.

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.

Intel Mac :: High Disk Activity - Reading And Writing

Mar 1, 2012

I have noticed a lot of disk activity reading and writing, it maxes out in bursts up to a couple of minutes at a time and overall seams to be reading and writing a lot of the time, with no processor activity at all. There is no obvious culprits in the activity monitor but terminal displayed large number of read and writes for mds, but spot light is not indexing (no dot in Mag glass) and this has been happening from months now.

Possibly longer noticed it when recieved replacement drive due to crook seagate, may have been doing this but could not hear it. Running last Snow Leopard on iMac 27 mid 2011 i7 custom with 8 gb of ram. also should note this unit has had load of issues Bad Ram, some software problems would not sleep (software) none of which have ever manifested on any of my other (older) macs. Also have noted that this drive activity does seem to coincide with using safari on occasion??

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?
