My cd drive won't accept any cd

My cd drive won't accept any CDs or DVDs it's like there's something blocking it from entering, and it does these funny nose everytime I turn on my Mac book pro......... This problem started today after I was trying to insert a disk in, at first it was accepting the disk then spitting it out after 2 time it just wouldn't accept it anymore....... I have a Mac book pro mid 2010 processor 2.4 ghz intel core 2 duo Memory 4gb 1067 MHz ddr3 software OS X 10.8.2 (12c60)

Are you sure that there's nothing stuck in the optical drive? Try the below eject methods to see what happens.
Five ways to eject a stuck CD or DVD from the optical drive
Ejecting the stuck disc can usually be done in one of the following ways:
  1. Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the
      left mouse button until the disc ejects.
  2. Press the Eject button on your keyboard.
  3. Click on the Eject button in the menubar.
  4. Press COMMAND-E.
  5. If none of the above work try this: Open the Terminal application in
      your Utilities folder. At the prompt enter or paste the following:
        /usr/bin/drutil eject
If this fails then try this:
Boot the computer into Single-user Mode. At the prompt enter the same command as used above. To restart the computer enter "reboot" at the prompt without quotes.

  • Labelflash​-Ulead-Won​'t accept any images

    Hi,
    I have a Toshiba A305-S6872. The system came with ULEAD Movie Factory 5. I am playing around with the labelflash and trying to make a label on ULEAD. I used the drop down to choose the D: Matish DVD Drive. Then when I try to add an image, it won't accept any image. If I put it on color it just does nothing.  But when I click texture and browse to find the image it tells me the image is the wrong format or corrupted. I ahve tried every available image on different media's. I have used pictures from my camera disk, the web, my files, etc. It won't accept anything. I have read the ULEAD manual and can't find any reference to the format. I am trying to make the label without a disk in because I just wanted to get familiar with the software. I haven't found the disk yet. Could that make a difference?
    Does anyone have any idea what this could be?
    Thanks, Lynn

    I had the same problem while trying to make a label for my disks.  It did not matter if I was using a printer or using labelflash, the ULEAD DVD program would not load images.  I searched hours on the support sites for my computer and the software. Finally I found that a service pak fix may be needed for some programs that might be entirely compatible with Vista. 
    Try:
    http://www.ulead.com/spotlight/vista/runme_2.htm
    Go to this site and download the appropriate service pak for your version of ULEAD DVD moviemaker.  I have a 5.3 version so I downloaded the 5 plus.  Now my pictures and images are accepted by the ULEAD program.  The entering choices of the program are different so you choose one, such as Audio/Data.  Then in the verbstrip Files you can choose [email protected] to make your disk label.
    Hopes this works for you!  I'm not a computer geek.  Just your average person with a computer!

  • Drive won't read any dvd ejects it automatically

    My drive Won't read any kind of DVDs, it keeps ejecting automatically after spinning for a while. it's been going on for a while now. please help!!!!!

    You can try resetting the SMC Intel-based Macs: Resetting the System Management Controller (SMC) - Apple Support
    and PRAM How to Reset NVRAM on your Mac - Apple Support
    If that doesn't help you can try a cleaning disc or a quick shot of canned air. It's likely though that your drive has failed, it' not all that uncommon. It that is the case you can either replace it or have it replaced but it's far cheaper just to buy a usb external drive....just not Apples because it won't work with macs with a built in drive working or not. .

  • Mail won't accept any commands post IOS 5

    Just dopwnloaded IOS5. Now, I can open Mail, it downloads my emails well enough but then it won't accept any interaction.
    Really bizarre... Anyone had similar issues?

    I just called Bell and we switched Bell to my primary SMTP and my home to the secondary and now I can send email from my iPhone again.
    Not sure why this changed with iOS 5.0?

  • My cd drive won't accept a cd or dvd

    My cd drive won't accept a cd or dvd? how do i fix this problem there is no cd or dvd in the drive

    A Mac Pro?  The Mac Pro has a different type of optical drive (compared to an iMac and most other Macs).  It is full size, with a "tray" that comes out where you place the disc, instead of a slot where you insert the disc.  It is also a standard component, not a special part like the one in the iMac.
    The Mac Pro (before the newest version that's about to go on sale) is designed to make swapping components relatively easy.  Apple provides these instructions
    http://manuals.info.apple.com/MANUALS/0/MA919/en_US/Mac_Pro_Early2009_Optical_Dr ive_DIY.pdf
    This web page has more info
    http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/mac_pro/faq/mac-pro-how-to-install-second- optical-drive-bluray.html#mac_pro_optical_drive_instructions
    So, you can actually go to "Best Buy" and buy a replacement drive for a Mac Pro. 

  • My disk drive won't accept disks at all, not even a little to spit them out.

    My disk drive will not accept disks at all...there is no disk stuck in there, but nothing happens when I try to insert a disk into my disk drive.
    The disk won't even go in the drive a little bit...it's like something is blocking the drive, but I know nothing is in there.
    Any ideas on what this may be or what to do to correct it?

    It sounds like the lens on your optical drive is dirty. Use a cleaning DVD or wrap a microfiber cloth around a credit card and carefully slide it in and out a few times.

  • DVD drive won't accept disks since Snow Leopard upgrade

    I just upgraded my Macbook to Snow Leopard, and now I can't insert disks into my optical drive. It just won't accept them. Help!
    Thanks in advance!

    Try this:
    Repairing the Hard Drive and Permissions
    Boot from your Snow Leopard Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. 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 installer. Now restart normally.
    If DU reports errors it cannot fix, then you will need Disk Warrior and/or Tech Tool Pro to repair the drive. If you don't have either of them or if neither of them can fix the drive, then you will need to reformat the drive and reinstall OS X.
    No guarantee this will work but it's a start.

  • Drive won't read ANY cd's or dvd's; only ejects them!!

    Help! My Cd-Rom drive will not read any cd's or dvd's. However, it will allow blank cd's to stay in and be burned onto...sometimes.
    When I put in a disc, it tries to read it and then spits it back out. I have tried all forms of cd's and dvd's (even discs with other programs) and the same thing happens. I can hear the disc spinning, and the laser moving, but the noise stops and the disc gets spit out. _Any suggestions????_

    Hi, and a warm welcome to the forums!
    I;m hoping it might just be a corrupt file or something... since it accepts blanks occasionally.
    What are the settings in Sts Prefs>CDs/DVDs? I think I'd change the settings for a try.
    If you haven't done any maintenance latly...
    Could be many things, but it's best to start with these two steps, which may fix it also...
    "Try Disk Utility
    1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc that came with your computer, then restart the computer while holding the C key.
    2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, *you must select your language first.)*
    *Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.*
    3. Click the First Aid tab.
    4. Click the disclosure triangle to the left of the hard drive icon to display the names of your hard disk volumes and partitions.
    5. Select your Mac OS X volume.
    6. Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk."
    Then Safe Boot off the HD & use Disk Utility from there to Repair Permissions, reboot once more.
    Safe Boot... holding Shift key down at bootup.
    It'll be a god test whether it's the drive or the OS if it can or can't boot with the C key down.

  • Imac dvd drive won't accept disks

    My iMac's dvd drive won't let me insert any disks. It feels like there's something blocking the way in. The eject button on my keyboard doesn't seem to be working either – usually the dvd drive makes an 'ejecting sound' when the button is pushed, even when there's no disk. I've also tried some disk ejecting tricks found in this community. The dvd drive seems to be responding to nothing...

  • I can't log in to my computer. It won't accept any names and passwords from any accounts.

    This is my work computer, and it started 3 days ago. It won't accept the name and password of any account in the office, except for the localadmin log in. That works just fine. I have tried all the basic troubleshooting like restarting, unplugging the computer, unplugging the network cable. Doesn't help. The login screen shakes like I typed in the wrong password.
    It is connect to a network with other macs and PCs. We use Windows Small Business Server 2003, I don't know if that has anything to do with the issue.
    Today the problem also started affecting a Mac Book Pro, which is also connected to the network.
    Is there an update we are missing? What's going on?

    Are you authenticating to an Active Directory server? If so, that's where the problem is.

  • Lacie 2Big Network Drive won't Accept a DHCP address from Time Capsule

    Good evening all.
    I have 2 of these Lacie 2Big network drives. One accepts a DHCP address from my Time capsule and the other does not, giving itself a self assigned IP address instead. It does accept a manually assigned address though. The settings on both the Lacie drives are identical as far as I can tell and they both run the latest 2.0.6 software. I tried hard reset on the Time capsule, and swapping the ethernet cables over on the two Lacie drives but to no avail. The log on the drive that won't accept a DHCP address says it is timing out after 45 seconds and setting a self assigned address. The drive that won't accept DHCP is an older drive with software updated to 2.0.6, but it had the problem with the older software as well. Does anyone have a similar experience and / or solution ?
    regards
    Shaun

    Also tried resetting PRAM, no luck.
    What does work is if I use Manual DHCP mode and specify the router's address (192.168.0.1). Then everything works but not on Automatic, which worked for a long time.

  • Media Drive won't accept new/blank CD-Rs

    I just bought a spindle of TDK CD-Rs. While my iMac's Media Drive is accepting regular CDs, blank DVDs, etc., it just spins, tries a few times, and then spits back out these new CD-Rs.
    I have tried the same discs on my MacBook, and they spin up normally (and the OS asks me what to do with the blank media).
    Is there any reason someone can think that these CDs won't work on my iMac?

    Hey
    I'm having pretty much the same problem, only that it's on my macbook.
    My drive has no problems reading bought or burnt CDs and DVDs, and also accepts blank DVDs, but it just won't take blank CDs. It doesn't make a difference what brand I use. The drive just always starts up, then slows down again, tries this 3 times, and then ejects the CD.
    I already tried booting while holding the eject key, and also the drive-reset which was described for the macbook pros (http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2839), but nothing worked
    have found a way to make it work again?

  • This Connection is Untrusted keeps coming up. It won't accept any certificates.

    Whenever I try to go to any page that requires a log in I keep getting this message page "This Connection is Untrusted". On some pages it won't give me the option to accept and go on ( example: when I try to log in to YouTube). It seems that Firefox does this when I unplug my computer for a couple of days. I've tried to go into settings and change the certificates part but I can't get anything to work.

    Check the calendar/clock on your computer, to be sure that the date/time are correct. If your computer will not hold/keep the correct information, you may need to replace the "coin" battery on your motherboard (see your manufacturer or your computer manual for instructions and to determine whether you have a replaceable battery or if it is soldered to the motherboard).

  • External hard drive won't mount any more

    I do a daily backup of the data on my internal HD to an external HD via FireWire. For some reason, the backup froze tonight - 10 minutes went by with no change in the progress. The only way I could get out of it was to quit everything, Force quit the ones that wouldn't respond, then reboot.
    The internal HD is fine, but the external HD that I back up to won't mount now. I ran Disk Utility, and it sees the drive, but the Finder doesn't. In Disk Utility, if I click on "Verify Disk," I get this message:
    Verifying volume “FireWire Disk”
    Checking HFS Plus volume.
    Checking Extents Overflow file.
    Checking Catalog file.
    The volume FireWire Disk needs to be repaired.
    Volume check failed.
    Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit (-9972)
    1 volume checked
    0 HFS volumes verified
    1 volume failed verification
    Does this mean I have lost everything on the external disk? What do I need to do to get that disk running and mounted again? There were other files on the external disk, besides the backup. There were some large video files that I will have to capture from tape again if they cannot be recovered.
    Thank you for your help!

    Cornelius,
    Thank you for your reply. I was able to get out of the situation through luck. I read on another forum a post by someone in a similar situation, and they said that the drive would mount on a different Mac. So I tried plugging in the drive to my old iMac, and sure enough it mounted, although when Disk Utility was run, the same error message was given.
    Fortunately I was able to copy the files I need from the drive to the iMac's internal drive. The copy worked even though there was obviously a problem with the external drive. Then I erased the external drive using Disk Utility, and copied the files back onto it.
    So I'm back where I started, and I didn't lose any files that I really need. But it was pretty scary for a while - I thought I would have to re-do a lot of work. Fortunately I don't, but I realize how valuable it is to have a second backup in case the first one fails. I am now going to duplicate everything onto the iMac's drive until the project is finished and I can archive it all. I still don't know how the disk got so messed up, and I'm surprised that a disk can get corrupted so easily.
