I have a 2009 Macbook Pro. When I put in a DVD or a computer CD, it will read it, but when I put in a CD it automatically ejects it about 15 seconds later. What do I need to do?

I just got this MacBook and it is refurbished. Yesterday, I went to put music CDs into iTunes, and it wouldn't even read that I put in a CD. About 15 to 20 seconds later, it spit it back out. I tried several CDs and it did the same to all of them. I also tried a DVD and a computer disk and they both were read and worked. Only a CD won't be read. What do I need to do?

Take it to an Apple store or AASP.

    I have a 2009 Macbook Pro with 1T hdd 8GB Ram and ran Maverick without problem...Yosemite installation has me completely frozen, nothing works but the spinning ball...I had to force shutdown last night, and haven't turned it on again...what do you advise?  During installation emptied cache, etc. Backed up using time machine, fortunately.

    Try these in order testing your system after each to see if it's back to normal:
    1. a. Resetting your Mac's PRAM and NVRAM
        b. Intel-based Macs: Resetting the System Management Controller (SMC)
    2. Restart the computer in Safe Mode, then restart again, normally. If this doesn't help, then:
    Boot to the Recovery HD: Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the COMMAND and R keys until the Utilities menu screen appears. Alternatively, restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the OPTION key until the boot manager screen appears. Select the Recovery HD and click on the downward pointing arrow button.
    3. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions: Upon startup select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions as follows.
    When the recovery menu appears select Disk Utility. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the main menu. Select Restart from the Apple menu.
    4. Reinstall Yosemite: Reboot from the Recovery HD. Select Reinstall OS X from the Utilities menu, and click on the Continue button.
    Note: You will need an active Internet connection. I suggest using Ethernet if possible
                because it is three times faster than wireless.
    5. Reinstall Yosemite from Scratch:
    Be sure you backup your files to an external drive or second internal drive because the following procedure will remove everything from the hard drive.

  • I have a 2009 MacBook Pro. Does anyone else have issues with their laptop having problems starting when shut off or restarting when asleep since installing Yosemite?

    I have a 2009 MacBook Pro which I have upgraded a few things on. I have updated to Yosemite and am having problems with getting my laptop to come out of sleep mode, and to start when shut off. Any ideas of what this might be or how to correct it? Is this more probably a hardware issue or software?

  • My hard drive has 70.93 GB available, yet when i have more than one internet tab open, i have to force quit google chrome because 'there is no more available application memory'. How can I solve this? I have a 2009 macbook pro running on 10.6.8.

    My hard drive has 70.93 GB available, yet when i have more than one internet tab open, i have to force quit google chrome because 'there is no more available application memory'. How can I solve this? I have a 2009 macbook pro running on 10.6.8. I have tried updating to mavericks through the mac app store but after it downloading for a day i got an error message saying there was a problem with the download. The same thing happens if i try to update itunes or the mac app store. After research, i have also tried repairing disk permissions, but every time they do get repaired the 'repair' button still appears, i'm not sure if it's because it was unable to repair the initial problems or if it just keeps detecting new ones.

    2 GBs is a minimum in which you can do many things, but not concurrently. Be very careful to not install third-party add-ons, limit the number of applications you choose to enter in Login Items, run as few applications concurrently as you demand.
    I would consider adding more RAM to your computer. Your model supports 8 GBs, so I would install that.

  • Have CS 5 Installed on my iMac and works ok. But installed on my new MacBook Pro it won't open NEF files from my Nikon D810. Displays NEF icons, but when I try and open them the response is: Make sure latest RAW updates are installed. If problem persists

    Have CS 5 Installed on my iMac and works ok. But installed on my new MacBook Pro it won't open NEF files from my Nikon D810. Displays NEF icons, but when I try and open them the response is: Make sure latest RAW updates are installed. If problem persists follow link: http://www.adobe.com/go/kb407111. Have installed Bridge 5.0.2.4; Raw Ref Version 7.0.0.308; DNG converter_8_7_1.dmg; Bridge 5.0.2 Update 2. Also same problem with Lightroom which I don't normally use. Lightroom_3_LS11_mac_3_6.dmg installed.

    In the link you posted it states that the Nikon 810 requires ACR 8.6 or newer.
    Version of ACR are specific to versions of Photoshop. You cannot use 8.6 nor even 7.0.in CS5.
    I believe that ACR 6.7 is the latest that will work with CS5, so make sure you have this installed and get rid of ACR 7.
    Having 2 versions of ACR will cause problems.
    You have already downloaded DNG Converter 8.7.1.
    Have you double clicked the DMG file to allow you to install DNG Converter on your computer?
    Be aware that DNG converter is a stand-along application and not a plug-in.
    You need to open DNG converter at select the FOLDER that contain your .NEF files.
    Don't open the folder and try to select individual files, it doesn't work that way.
    After converting your D810 files to DNGs you can then open the DNGs in CS5
    The problem is your camera didn't exist when CS5 & its version of ACR was developed.
    i don't use Lightroom, but the list mentions Lightroom 5.6 as needed to open D819 so your 3.6 version of LR won't cut it.

    I don't see any DDR3L on the page for the RAM that would fit your model -> http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/memory/Apple_MacBook_MacBook_Pro/Upgrade/DDR3_133 3MHz_SDRAM.
    But the answer is that it doesn't really matter - just make certain to get 1333MHz.

  • I have a 2009 MacBook Pro. How do I do a backup on the new internal hard drive using my existing LaCie external drive without re backing up the entire internal drive. Just want to backup most recent changes

    I have a mid 2009 15" MacBook Pro. The existing internal drive was about to fail so I had it replaced with a 500GB western digital drive. I have been backing up my system with a LaCie 500GB external drive. I want to perform a new backup using Time Machine but I only want to backup any changes from the last 30 days or so. I want to avoid doing a total system backup thus duplicating most of the data on my external drive and pretty much filling it up. Any suggestions appreciated

    Look at this web site devoted to Time Machine:

  • I have a 2009 macbook pro with a power supply problem

    I have a 2009 mac book pro. It was work fine with no problems and then one day it wouldn't start, I thought the battery was dead so I had the charger connected and it would start then just automatically go to sleep. It will just stay on for about 10 seconds. I took it to apple, they opened it up and found corrosion and they said I'd have to replace those parts. I was wondering if there is such a way to sync all the music and pictures I have on my hard drive  to my imac with the laptop being off, or if there is anyway I can solve the problem with out the heavy tab $$$???

  • I have a 17" Macbook pro with flickering red and cyan(blue) lines across the screen. The issue disappears temporarily when I tap on the computer, and the problem does not occur when I use external display or try to screen capture the problem.

    I purchased my Macbook (17") through a certified apple tecnition in August 2012, it was refurbished and the motherboard was completely replaced. I do a lot of photo editing, but I have been unable to do so because of the red vibrating lines that interrupt my screen. The issue disappears temporarily when I tap on the computer, and the problem does not occur when I use external display or try to screen capture the problem. I brought the computer back to the technition I purchased it from and he said that it was a problem with my fan, so I have two new fans but the issue is still occuring. He says he doesnt know whats wrong. Does anyone have any information on this issue?
    Here is an image of the issue
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8884847081/

    I recommend having your Mac serviced by someone competent. A force sufficient to "blow apart" the fans was clearly excessive and may have damaged the display cable, as well as any number of other problems.
    Dust is properly cleaned with a vacuum, preferably one designed for computer service, and they are not cheap.
    Compressed air should never be used. It just blows dust everywhere, often into places where it can no longer be removed.

  • I have a 2009 Macbook Pro and the charger stopped working. Will this charger work for it, or do i have to find an old 1 online?

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
    That charger is perfect for your MacBook Pro, so you can buy it and use it with your computer. If you want, you can buy the 85W one, that provides more power and makes the battery charge faster, at least for the 15 and 17-inch MacBook Pro
