IMac :: DVD / CD Hot When Ejected Out Of Superdrive

Jul 15, 2009

Is it normal for a DVD or CD to come out hot when you eject it from the Superdrive? I was listening to a CD on Mac Mini and when I ejected the CD, the CD was very hot.


IMac :: Blank DVD Stuck In SuperDrive.... How To Open It

Dec 16, 2009

Okay so last night I was trying to burn a file with Disk Utility, as soon as I put the DVD in I heard it was making a little noise (most likely because there was dirt on it - I wasn't thinking properly). When it started to burn, I could hear it make noise....I didn't want to risk not having a smooth burn so I cancelled it, then tried to eject no prevail.

I've tried everything in the book.......from repeatedly pressing the eject button on the keyboard, to restarting while holding down the mouse button, to tilting it on its side and let gravity do its job, to lightly smacking the back part of it........nothing is working

When I do try and eject it, I've noticed it makes 2 different sounds....1st one is, imagine the sounds it makes when you put a CD in....and also taking it out, those 2 sounds very close to each other. 2nd one is sort of like the CD rubbing against something, like a bandsaw but on a low level. It wants to work but something is getting it caught.....

MacBook :: DVD Cannot Be Read Or Ejected?

Sep 9, 2010

I have this ridiculous problem with my MacBook (unibody). I've inserted a DVD that the drive cannot read. Because it cannot read it, it tries to eject it. Now my MacBook has always been a bit dodgy at ejecting disks - sometimes I have to slant it slightly so the disc comes out. However, this DVD just won't come out regardless of what I do. It's stuck in this loop of trying to read it, failing, trying to eject it, failing, trying to read, failing, etc.

MacBook :: Player Not Reading CD Or DVD - Just Ejected It

Dec 25, 2010

I have a iBook G4. The cd player all of a sudden is not reading a dvd or a cd when inserted. Never have had a problem with it at all. It tries to read it and then just ejects it. Tried to reinstall a new dvd software for the dvd player but didn't help. Just tried to insert a blank cd to burn jpgs to it and did the same thing, just ejected it.

Windows On Mac :: Vista DVD Keeps Getting Ejected

Feb 24, 2009

Made my first attempt at bootcamp last night. Whenever it would restart with the Vista DVD in the drive it would eject the disk and and give a non boot disk error. I have a Vista iso image burned onto a DVD+RW with Magic ISO. Is it because it is burned to a DVD+RW and not DVD-R? I know "RW" sometimes means there is a another bit of software on the DVD that's not part of the ISO. I loaded XP just fine and when I am in Windows and insert the Vista disk it recognizes it as a Vista disk. It will even start he installation but stops because the format is FAT32. So I restart from XP and it still ejects the disk.

Software :: Video DVD Get Ejected Straight Away

Jun 9, 2009

I'm experiencing a problem with Video DVD's. If I insert them, the drive spins up, and there is the normal reading sign, but after maybe 15 to 20 seconds it ejects the DVD. I can't find any notices about these in /var/log/system.log . Sometimes the DVD's work and sometimes they refuse to get loaded. Is it possible that my DVD Drive is damaged? I have no alternative computer around.

Mac Pro :: Inserted DVD's Get Ejected Without Mounting

Jan 19, 2009

I've got a few purchased video DVD's that when I insert them in the Mac Pro (Feb 2008 model), it spends a minute spinning the disc and then ejects it. Other discs work fine, and these problem discs work fine in my MacBook Pro. Could this be a faulty DVD drive or some form of copy protection? If it could be a faulty drive, will Apple send me a replacement to fit myself. I don't want the hassle of lugging my Mac Pro to an Apple Retail Shop or to send it away for repair (I'd rather spend �25 to buy a replacement drive than go through that hassle!).

MBP 15" (early '09) mbp 13" (mid '09). My 15" always auto ejects dvd rom (even though there is no disc inside) whenever I open the screen from sleep while the mbp 13" doesn't have this problem at all. Is this normal?

IMac :: SSD Drives Being Ejected When In Sleep Mode?

Sep 17, 2010

I installed two SSD drives into my 27" i7, one in the SSD location and one replacing the optical drive. So I have two SSD's (128GB + 256GB) and the stock WD 1TB drive.

My issue is once I put the machine in sleep mode, the iMac is ejecting the SSD's. If I boot off of the hard drive and then put it in sleep mode, I will drop both SSD's. If I boot off of one of the SSD's and put it in sleep mode, the SSD that was used for booting will not be ejected, but the other one will.

Anyone else running multiple SSD's (not in raid) and is having the same issue? I am beginning to think that I will have to live with just one SSD as the boot drive (which is not the end of the world). Or, cough up an extra $540 (not likely) for another 256GB SSD and raid 0 two of them as boot drives.

Software :: Superdrive Not Recognizing CD/DVD

Sep 9, 2010

My Macbook Pro's Superdrive does not recognize ANY CD or DVD, blank or full.

I did a PMU reset (took out batt. hold on/off button for 5 sec. put in batt. and restart)

I did a PRam reset (hold cmd+option+P+R on startup)

did not change anything.

I verified that the drive was operational - started with the Snow Leopard instal disk (C pressed), the disc was correctly mounted and the install program launched.

Seems like a software/OS related problem.

I had to drop my iMac G5 in this morning to the apple store to get a stuck DVD out of the superdrive!!. My question is, how often to discs get stuck in the drive??? Is this a common problem??? Is there a risk of the disc getting stuck every time you put one in???? Why wouldn't apple put a pinhole to manually eject the disc or some other way of manually getting the disc out!???

MacBook Pro :: 13" - DVD Superdrive Failed

Nov 3, 2006

My 13" Macbook DVD drive suddenly failed. I put in a movie DVD, the disk did not mount, the drive ejected it claiming the media was not supported. I put it back in, the drive ejected it, and thereafter continuously tried to eject a non existing disk. It does this every few seconds for several minutes before giving up. Opening disk utilities starts it up again as does waking from sleep or rebooting. resetting p-ram did not help. A disc cannot be loaded (the slot is blocked). Here in Japan, repairs likely to take 2-4 weeks....anything else I can try before biting the bullet? Macbook is 3 months old. Nothing else is faulty (except some uneven "hot" spots on the display).

MacBook Pro :: Dvd Stuck In Superdrive - Unable To Work

Nov 15, 2010

I picked up a 13" '08 Macbook pro, everything's great apart from a dvd being stuck in the drive.

I've tried all the usual tricks that come up on google, holding eject/trackpad on start up, eject in commands/itunes and the thin piece of card under/over the disc but nothing has worked.

When holding eject it sounds like the disc hits something as it tries to eject but due to the felt I can't see inside to see what it is?

I have an iMac now powered by OS X Lion. But the problem is that when I try to insert a disk the superdrive accepts it but it doesn't show in the desktop.

Intel Mac :: SuperDrive Fails When Burning Dvd's

May 18, 2012

This has been happening consistently when I try to burn DVD's, during this time the drive stalls and I am not able to eject. (Possibly because software is trying to write with faulty hardware maybe?) The error message changes if I try to burn DL DVD 's. Also CD's often fail while burning some do complete. Errors also occur with Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere CS5 and DVD Studio Pro.

IMac :: 2.8 Imac's External Portion Feels Extremely Hot - Use SMC Fan Control?

Jan 10, 2008

I'm new here and was hoping for some feedback. I got a new 2.8 Imac and had it replaced after the Power Supply Position was idling at 82 degrees Celsius, and the top of the case felt very hot to the touch. The fans never "kicked in" even though it was that hot. Anyways, I got a replacement machine and the Power Supply Position now idles at about 68-70 degrees Celsius (much cooler), but the external portion of the machine still feels extremely hot. So my question is, how hot is too hot?? Is my machine normal and am I worried about nothing?? Should I be using SMC Fan Control?? Is the heat because of the 2.8 processor??

After about 45mins of gaming in bootcamp under windows7 have a look at the result. The seems way too hot - 80 degrees?? Sometimes the CPU gets close to 90! Does anyone know if these are normal/acceptable temps for 2010 iMacs? I read that CPU temps should generally not go much above 50 degrees. I would assume running at 80degrees is not good for the hardware long term?

IMac :: Superdrive Noisy Sometimes - Loud Vibration

Sep 2, 2010

I have a HL-DT-ST DVDRW GA32N Superdrive in my 2010 i7 iMac and I've had to reinstall the OS twice, because someone in the house kept messing with different files. Anyhow, the first time I installed it the superdrive was very loud, as it was the second time I installed it. It was like a loud vibration, as soon as I put the disc in. I have put other discs in and they are as quiet as can be. I've tested 9 or 10 discs and they all seem to be quiet. So I decided to put in the install disc one more time and it was quiet as well, no more vibration. Is there something wrong here or are these drives just noisy sometimes?
