OS X :: Finding Slot Loading Drive For Burning Lots Of Cd's

Jun 24, 2009

My friend was thinking of getting a new iMac, the only thing he does not like about them is the slot loading drive. He burns around 5 cd's/DVD's a day, a stack of 100 cd's does not last long with him. He does a lot of movie burning to watch it on his tv and wonders if after a year of tons of burning will the slot loading drive die out. He does not want to buy an external DVD burner as well which is what i use.

OS X :: Need To Push CD / DVD Into Slot Loading Drive?

Dec 28, 2009

I am new to mac. When I insert a cd/dvd into the slot loading drive, I have to push the cd in rather far before it actually catches it and pulls it in. Is this normal or is it supposed to only be pushed in about half way. When it ejects it seems that it pushes the disc out much further. Is there something you must do before inserting a cd, or do you just push it in?

IMac :: Get Slot Loading Bluray Drive?

May 20, 2009

This is not related to the other bluray thread on here. I am looking for a slot loading Blu Ray drive (I do not want write capability) for my iMac Aluminum. I know fastmac sell a Bluray drive for $999, but that has the unnecessary write capability which jacks up the price. So, does anyone know where to get a slot loading BD-ROM for the iMac?

PowerPC :: IMac G3 Slot Loading Not Powering Up?

Jun 3, 2007

Until yesterday, my iMac G3 slot is working fine, but today, I can't power it up. When I press the power button, the light just flash and then went off. I've opened it up to check the PRAM batt and also checked if there are any shorts on the logic board. All looked ok to me. The HDD is working fine and I supposed the power supply unit is fine too.

Hardware :: 9mm ATAPI Slot Loading Internal Blu Ray Drives

Mar 29, 2010

Do they exist yet? The prices for laptop BD drives in general are lower than I expected but any slot-loaders available are about 12mm high, which means 17" MBP owners are in luck. [URL] It's strange that this one is available though, yet encouraging. If they can build a 9mm drive that uses a tray then surely a slot format would be easier?

Desktops :: IMac G3 Slot Loading - Screen Go Black?

Aug 11, 2009

The screen/crt of the imac that I have been using since about '98 went black - this actually happened a couple times previously but I was able to get back in (no idea - one of those things where out of frustration you just start pushing everything at once and it suddenly pops back on). I have tried everything - the internal battery, that little button on the motherboard (not sure if that is what it is called) that resets everything, the connection of the main power button on the front, etc. I am fairly sure it is stuck in sleep-mode or something (no beeps, hard drive doesn't make the usual booting-up sounds but you can tell that it is receiving power) but after months of wasted effort I finally gave up. I bought another slot-loading G3 and would like to swap hard-drives between the two - I have taken my old G3 completely apart so many times that I am totally comfortable with that aspect but have hesitated because if I somehow blow this one I will be left with nothing.

PowerPC :: DVD Stuck Slot Loading Powerbook Trick?

Oct 9, 2005

I have a 12" PB and latelly became a nightmare with the stuck CDs. Usually it does not want to eject CDs/DVDs from companies but it handles fine virging cds/dvds. ?? Probably there is some formating in the industrial kind of CDs outside, who knows.just want to open this thread for people with the same problem.If the drive tries to eject but can't and end up mounting the CD again. Just take another CD and when you press eject again push that CD into the slot but just one third and you will see the stuck CD coming out with no problem as well.It seems there is a sensor or something that obviously does not work well. I inserted a virgin CD and the drive worked just fine and ejected later on, but a CD as the installer for my Linksys get stuck and some other softwares too.

PowerPC :: Dead Slot Loading Graphite G3 IMac 500 DV SE?

Feb 16, 2007

I have a charcoal iMac DV SE 500 which won't complete a proper start. The machine chimes and begins to start, and then clicks off again before anything can show on the screen. It won't start in Target Disk mode, and zapping the PRAM (starting with alt/apple/P/R, right?) has no effect. Does this sound like a dead PRAM battery, a dead 'Power/Analog' board, or a dead hard drive? Can anyone give me an idea of how much it would cost to fix, and recommend good, reliable, cheap UK repairers It's not worth much, but I have a friend who'd love it if it can be restored to life, and I'd like to get some of the files off it if it's not the drive.

Hardware :: What Are Some Of The Benefits And Disadvantages Of Slot Loading Drives

Nov 5, 2009

I was just wondering, how come we rarely see slot loading drives in notebooks and desktop computers other than Apple Products?

What are some of the benefits and disadvantages of slot loading drives?

Do you think that they have anything to do with the Blu-Ray negotiations?

They are definitely a lot nicer to use/look at compared to those hideous PC tray drives.

IMac PPC :: G3 Slot-Loading Won't Connect To Internet Via Ethernet Cable

Apr 6, 2012

i can't connect to the internet via my ethernet cable, but this is a weird case. What's weird about it is that all my settings are O.K. (appletalk on and set to ethernet, tcp/ip set to ethernet, dhcp) and my iMac is recieving a 192 address, but it still can't connect to the internet. The dhcp settings are correct, because they are the same settings used on all my other devices (at least those that use internet anyway), and they all connect to the internet just fine. Whether via an ethernet cable, or Wi-Fi.

IMac PPC :: G3 Slot Loading Makes Noise When Plugged In - Won't Turn On

Jun 3, 2012

When I plug it in, the computer makes a horrrible noise, and then when I press the power button, it flashes, and the noise becomes much louder. It origionally turned on to the hd selection screen when I first got it, and I accidentally left it on all day. When I got home, it was making the noise. I know it is not the hard drive, because it dieson't have one, and Imacs don't have fans.

Final Cut Pro X :: Editing On Internal Or External Drive For Small Media Files With Lots Of Layers And Compositing?

Aug 21, 2014

I am upgrading my mid 2012 MBP with an internal SSD. I have16 RAM. OS is Mavericks. 

I edit videos using a mix of photos (imported layers via photoshop), short animations, short video clips. I do some very basic stop animation also. So each media file is not heavy (photos, pics, short videos), but I do a lot of layering and compositing in FCPX.  I had a lot of delays and freezes with 5400 rpm HDD… so I decided to upgrade to SSD. 

Some people have told me to edit it all on my internal SSD as the media files are not big.. 

Everywhere else on the web I read that all media / libraries should be on an external while I edit them. But most of these contributors are using huge video files, HD, which is not my case. 

So – with small media files but lots of editing and effects  / animation, should I spend the extra money on a good external 7200 rpm USB3 to edit from ? Or just use external drive for storage and not editing. 

Not going for TB as I read there would not be a difference between USB3 and TB on a 7200 rpm external drive (difference is felt when using RAID, r SSD external) ...

OS X :: Finding Loading Bar

Dec 30, 2010

When my mac boots there is a loading bar underneath the apple, it doesnt take that long, but It is a brand new hard drive that apple just replaced, none of the disk repairs/verifications worked. If I replaced the hard drive with another SATA would that solve the problem? I have a 1tb that I am waiting to install because i think my computer might be frying hard drives.

Applications :: Finding Safari Blue Loading Bar?

Jun 8, 2010

Rationally, I think I like the blue bar because when a page finishes to load, the whole address bar turns from blue to white, a very noticeable signal. I often start reading while the page loads, so the blue-to-white "flash" is easily registered by my peripheral vision.

Safari 4's purple/gray rectangle was much harder to notice, causing me to shift my focus between the content and the address bar. Now, I can concentrate on the content and let my peripheral vision tell me when the loading is done. Much more relaxing.

Mac Pro :: Get Blue Ray Drive To Fit In Second Superdrive Slot?

Dec 27, 2008

As I posted earlier today, I am considering a Mac Pro as my new HD video editing machine. When you add up the numbers, it looks like the least expensive dual Xeon machine w/ 1600MHz FSB. But being some what new to Mac's (I have been watching Mac's for years and have worked with BSD on and off for years, too), I have questions. One thing is with the standard PC workstation, they come with two 5 1/4 bays, one will be ready for my to install the internal Blue-ray burning needed to burn those HD disks. How is that done on a Mac Pro? Can one get a Blue-ray drive to fit in the second SuperDrive slot? If not, what are the options?
