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)

OS X V10.7 :: Change Mail Preview In Lion From A Vertical Read To A Horizontal Read?

Apr 22, 2012

I just switched from Snow leopard to Lion and i don't like the way that Lion has the mail preview set up as a 3 column vertical format. I thought in Snow Leopard you could change the set-up so it's either horizontal or vertical, but I can't seem to find that option in Lion. I want to have the list of my email messages in the top, horizontal window and the preview of the selected message in a horizontal window below. Am I missing this option to change the view format from vertical to horizontal somewhere?

OS X :: Read Only Ical - Can't Change To Read - Write

Nov 5, 2006

I know this is lame, but I searched and can't find a solution. When I click on a day in ical it says it is a Read-only calendar. I repaired permissions, but it still says read only. The strange part is, in the Get Info screen, it says Read-Write for all the users.

Hardware :: What Format Write / Read And PC Read?

Jun 16, 2009

I'm buying an external hard drive to use as a backup for my MacBook but also as a network drive that all the computers connected to my router (Airport Extreme) can use. There are two MacBooks and two PCs that connect to the network. I only need my MacBook to be able to write to the hard drive but I need the two PCs to be able to access and use the files on the hard drive. I was going to get a 1TB external and give it two partitions. The first partition is going to be the Time Machine backup for my MacBook and the other will be accessed by all computers on the network. What format will the second partition need to be so that both MacBooks and both PCs can view and use the files? Also what external hard drive would you recommend?

Mac Mini :: Doesn't Read Retail SL DVD?

Oct 24, 2010

Yesterday I tried to reinstall Snow Leopard on my Mac mini 2009. When I inserted SL DVD (get one with mini) mini doesn't seemed to recognized it. It just loads and spin it few minutes and eject it after 2-3 min. Also no DVD option in "Startup disk" menu.

I was 99% that my SL DVD was corrupted (too scratched) and buy new Retail version in Apple store. When I came home and try to load Retail DVD I have the same issues.

I tried my friend's SL DVD and his copy loads with no problem at all. I just cannot install SL because DVD wasn't retail.

IMac (Intel) :: Mid 2011 Doesn't Read SD Card?

Jun 6, 2014

My iMac mid 2011 does not read the SD Card. In 'System Info' the info abou card reading device tells: 'This computer does not have integrated Apple card reading devices' (something like that, my OS is in Russian).

Worked great a couple of weeks ago, now I have that issue. Is there a way to fix that without changing my iMac's elements?

ITunes For Mac :: Doesn't Read Storage Location Of Library

Jun 21, 2014

My old iMac had OSX 10.5.xx and iTunes 9.xx installed and the iTunes library was stored on an external HD. I have run iTunes that way for many years and had to upgraded the HD a couple of times to the point I now have a 4TB drive for my iTunes library. 

I have now bought a new iMac that has OSX 10.9.3 and iTunes 11.2.2 installed on it. I changed the default library location under iTunes preferences but it tunes does not read the files and keeps on wanting me to file my files from the Cloud.

Software :: Optical Drive Doesn't See Nor Read Disks - Not Mounting

Dec 10, 2005

i just posted this but i don't think in the right place as i have been assigned a ticket number and rec'd an email telling me my ip is logged..i hope they don't charge for advice! I'm a desperate woman with a small wallet at the moment. i have a ibook g3 running osx 10.4.2 toast titanium 6 and suddenly she is indicating there is no disc in the drive when i go to use toast and i realize it is not appearing on the desktop nor elsewhere just in ATA. it is neither reading nor writing from the disk drive. the optical drive isn't seeing it. i have tried rebooting and different disks but it doesn't respond. i am not a seasoned veteran here, I'm a layman. I do know when i look under ABOUT THIS MAC: It lists the following:

SONY CD-RW CRX800E:
Model: SONY CD-RW CRX800E
Revision: 1.3g
Detachable Drive: No
Protocol: ATAPI
Unit Number: 1

Intel Mac :: 'superdrive' Doesn't Read Or Recognize Film Dvds

May 8, 2012

Nothing appears on the desktop, and the DVD doesn't play (this is the second DVD I've tried).  The drive works to download software though.  These are commercial DVDs from Lovefilm in the UK - there are bound to be some scratches - does this mean I can only play new DVDs? 

Also, if I click Finder to eject the DVD, the command is light gray, meaning the IMAC has not actually registered that there's a DVD in the drive, so I have to log off and on again for the DVD icon to appear on the desktop, at which point I can eject it.  However, if I click it, it doesn't play. I'd really like to play films if I can. 

I don't know what operating system I have, except that it's MAC OS X. I only just got it new two days ago.

Info:
iMac

Applications :: IPhoto 09 Doesn't Read Keywords From Files (IPTC Metadata)?

Jan 28, 2009

I installed iPhoto 09 today and I'm having a hard time figuring out why does this new version does not read keywords from my image files (IPTC Metadata) All my photos are tagged with keywords "inside" the files (IPTC Metadata) and with iPhoto 08 all I had to do was to import the files to iPhoto and it would recognise those keywords! Now, in iPhoto 09, those "inner" keywords (IPTC Metadata) aren't recognised! Did Apple remove the IPTC Metadata support in iPhoto 09? From what I have read at Apple Discussions, there is a bug on iPhoto 09 that stops the support of IPTC Metadata ONLY when the option "Copy items to the iPhoto library" isn't ticked! If the photos are imported and copied to the iPhoto Library then there is no problem and the keywords are recognised.

OS X :: External Hard Disk Changed From "Read And Write" To "Read Only"

Aug 12, 2010

I have an external Transcend HD, which has been working perfectly fine for around 5 months now. It is NTFS, and I use NTFS-3g and Macfuse. Been running fine. Was able to read and write. Suddenly I am only able to read though. I go into the "Get Info" pane and the option to choose whether I want to read and write, or read only is gone, and all that it says is "You can read only". getting this back to read and write is really appreciated. I really need this disk.

OS X :: "only Read" When Set Privileges To Read & Write

May 16, 2010

I was trying to write xmp data to my photo's, when I got errors on photo's in certain folders. ?Writing XMP Metadata? did not complete successfully. It seems all jpegs in a few particular folders have generate this error. I then noticed all those files were lacking a creation date. When trying to copy the "image taken on" date to the "creation date", using A Better Attributes, I didn't appear to have the right permissions.

Now this is, to me at least, the weirdest part: when I open Get Info on any of the images, it says "You can only read", even though all privileges are set to Read & Write (screenshot attached). The folder itself says "You can read and write". So far I've only seen this on files/folders on an external hard drive, formatted Mac OS Extended (Journaled). It's a WD My Book, connected via USB through a hub. Anyone ever seen this before? Is there anything I could try to fix this?

MacBook Pro :: Won't Read SD Card But Will Read CF Card With The Same Card Reader?

Dec 26, 2010

As the title says, I have a card reader that works great with a CF card, but the MBP won't recognize an SD card. This is a new problem for me. I also have an express card adapter for SD that won't read the card, either. I have tried 4 different SD cards, and these exact cards have worked for me in the recent past (within the past 2 months). They work fine in the camera. I also tried connecting the camera via usb, which was unsuccessful. I tried blowing air on the cards and the reader. I cannot get the cards to be read on my wife's macbook. This makes no sense to me, as it worked fine the last time I tried. I find it hard to believe that all cards are corrupt, or the cable is the problem because it reads the CF card.

OS X :: How To Read An MP3 CD?

Apr 29, 2009

A most basic question, no doubt, but here goes! I have a MacBook Pro with "Leopard" software on it. Now, I have just bought an MP3 CD. How can I listen to it on my laptop? When I slide it inside the computer, it simply comes back out. Do I have to dowload some software in order to make it possible for me to listen to the CD? If so, which is best? I do not mind paying a small sum if this is worth it.

MacBook Pro :: Could Not Read Any DVD

Jun 19, 2008

Last night I could not read any DVD on my MBP. It would make noise like it was reading them and then it would spit them out. On the other hand it still reads CDs fine. I have since noticed that this is a very common problem among slot drive users. What are my options? Is there a simple and inexpensive fix (like cleaning it with compressed air) or should I look for a replacement drive? If I get a replacement drive and I attempt to do it by myself, would any slot drive work, or do I have to look for an specific model? How have you guys coped with this issue? My MBP is out of warranty. I have contacted a local authorized service shop and I am waiting on their response.
