PowerPC :: Unable To Read CDs

Feb 5, 2007

Ok, on my Powerbook in sig whenever I put a CD in it stays in for about 20 sec and then spits it back out, but when I boot up with the CD in it reads it just fine. This is making me mad because I'm trying to install the Burning Cruasde, and it is four discs.

Power Mac G5 :: Unable To Read Commercial Dvds / Tries To Read It Then Spits Them Back Out

Oct 17, 2007

The drive in my G5 tower will read/write commercial or blank CDs and will read/write blank DVDs, however, it will not read most commercial DVDs. When I insert them it tries to read it then after a few seconds it just spits them back out. Occasionally commercial DVDs will read and mount fine, but this seems to be rare.

Mac OS X (10.4.10)

PowerPC :: G4 Won't Read DVD?

Feb 25, 2010

I have a G4 PPC (specs below) and for some reason it won't read the install disks, or any other DVDs. When I put it in, however, it just does nothing, makes a few clicking noises, then spits it back out. Even if I start up holding C, it just waits till I let go then starts up normally and spits the disk out.

PowerPC :: G4 Refuses To Read A Particular CD?

Apr 3, 2009

I have an audio CD that my PowerBook will not read. I've read this CD in other media drives (such as my car's CD player and another computer's CD player), and I've read a different CD in my Mac's drive.

It appears to me that the issue then is this particular CD and my computer.

First, the CD is in very good condition, with no visible scratches unless you really scrutinize the read side. the label side has no damage at all. It is a 15 year old CD, but was probably played very few times when it was new, and has been simply sitting on a shelf for over a decade.

sometimes I insert the CD and after several seconds of unusual noises from my CD drive, I am able to begin to play it in itunes. However, after 1 to 3 minutes it inevitably will begin to skip so badly that itunes stops playing it, and often hangs up, forcing me to use 'force quit'. other times I insert the CD and after several seconds of unusual noises from my CD drive, the drive simply spits the CD back out, without ever having read it at all.

Is it possible that there was something about the way an older CD is encoded that my mac cannot deal with?

PowerPC :: Ibook G4 Won't Read DVDs - How To Know About It

Sep 3, 2007

my ibook doesn't read dvds anymore like it used to, but it will read blank ones if i use an external dvd drive, but when i try and insert a normal dvd (ive tried a lot of dvds so its not just one disc) in the laptop drive or the external one, it says "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer." and gives me an option to ignore or eject.

i tried creating a new account, but the same thing happened, so i used my install disks to install mac os x on an external drive and booted from that and the disk worked! but, ive got lots of important data on the laptop drive, so im stuck here.

PowerPC :: IMac G3 Slot Loader - Can't Read DVD+R

Oct 4, 2006

First and foremost I should tell you that I am a new convert from Windows.

I'm currently running OS X 10.3 and find that I can not read any of my DVD+R discs but I can read my CDRs just fine. My guess is that the optical drive is simply too old to recognize the DVD+R format. Is this correct?

My alternative to this would be to purchase a firewire external drive enclosure and put one of my newer dvd burners in it, but would I be able to boot from this type of connection or do I have to actually buy a "superdrive"?

OS X :: Unable To Read NTFS Disk (Vista)?

Feb 5, 2009

I'm trying to copy from my Vista hard drive to my Mac hard drive. I'm getting rid of the Vista machine.

I took out the hard drive from the Vista and put it in an external enclosure that is USB attached to my Mac. The Mac is unable to read the drive.

I thought that leopard was able to read NTFS file systems?

It acts as if it doesn't even understand the partition table format on the drive.

Is there a simple way to get this to work? Does NTFS-3G help reading the partition table?

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Read Emails Via Mail App

Apr 2, 2012

Just in the last day or so ive noticed that i'm unable to read certain emails. Headings and script appear as a series of A's. I've tried viewing them in different formats (view>message...) , text encoding and even rebuild. None of which has worked. I suspect i would need to re install the Mail app? Would this have anything to do with a recent installation of Microsoft Office?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

PowerPC :: Hard To Read / Write To External Drives With G5

Sep 17, 2007

This issue has been killing my work flow for quite awhile. I have a G5 dual 2.0. I can barely read or write files to an external hard drive. Say I try and copy 1.56GB of audio (12 files) from my external drive it will start to copy then stop at 500mb for minutes then start moving as normal and stop again around 900 for minutes.. then again at 1.4. This also happens when writing.

Here is the confusing part. This happens with two external drives (different models) with firewire 400, 800 and USB. I have reinstall OSx. I have repaired permissions and ran repair disc on everything. These hard drives work FLAWLESS with my Macbook Pro as well. Gr what can this be? It takes forever to copy data to or from a drive which is often how I transfer audio between my desktop and laptop. I should soon have Mac Pro money and this crappy G5 can go out the window. I am on 10.4..
