View Full Version : MacBook Prod CD/DVD drive problem

04-06-2007, 11:14 AM
Ok, I know I get flamed everytime I post about problems I have with my MaxBook, but I do need a little help, so here goes.

Everything I put in the CD/DVD drive gets ejected after about 154-30 seconds. Blank CDs, blank DVDs, movie DVD, data CD, music CD, does not matter. Can't run HW test because, as far as I know, you have to run it off the CD, and of course it ejects that also.

Any ideas short of getting a new drive installed.

No, I don't have apple care, never need to purchase any extended service contract before.

is mac-l the macintosh forum on the mac support page?

External CD drive?

Oh, I'm so sorry. I meant to add the url for the Mac-L. No, it's separate. Bunch of real smart Mac users. Try this. You'll get an answer in 3 hours probably. It's a very active list.

Sounds like a dead CD/DVD drive to me. Got an Apple Store near you? Might be time for a trip to the Genius Bar (http://www.apple.com/retail/geniusbar/) (you'll need to make an appointment first):

[edited to note: the price -- $0.00 -- is hard to beat :D]
