It sounds like the unit has an optical drive failure, and most likely the drive will need to be replace

CD/DVD Drive won't accept new blank CDs and they jam in the computer. I have to restart the computer (sometimes more than once) to get the machine to eject the discs.


Hi,
The problem would be the dvd rom, it won't read anymore. That's a problem with a combo DVD rom, when it being use frequently it tends to breakdown, mainly the problem is the internal parts. I have tried repairing most DVD/CD Roms, to no avail..... mostly the problem would be the parts, and it is not available in the market, and it is better to buy a new one than getting it into the manufacturer's service center, they charge excessively like your buying a new one!
If the CD is stuck inside, get a pointed metal rod, there is a small hole in the face front and push the rod into that hole untill it opens the cd tray.
Thanks for using FixYa!

My internal DVD-RW has stopped working ? Power Mac G5


Sounds like the DVD has broken. I would suggest either buying an external dvd drive (either USB or Firewire) or you could replace the internal DVD drive see instructions at http://support.apple.com/manuals/#powermac

August 2005, I purchased this powermac g5. There has been a steady deterioration in the DVD player. Presently, no rented DVDs play. SONY DVD RW DW-Q28A: Firmware Revision: KAS7 Interconnect: ATAPI Burn...


OK. The movie industry strikes again! Your RENTED DVDs are the key.Hollywood made some adjustments to prevent the copying of the movies. So they put software to detect the kind of drives in which the movies are inserted. DVD/RW are capable of copying a movie, so they are disqualified as playing devices. Have it be a normal DVD player you won't be facing any troubles.

CD/DVD Drive Doesn't work


Hi, Sorry to hear you are having problems,
One final test to try before declaring the drive dead:
Insert a bootable installation CD or DVD and restart right away. If the system ejects the disk, simply re-insert it as soon as possible after you hear the start up sound and then, immediately press the ( C ) button on your keyboard forcing the Mac to boot from the cd....
If your Mac boots, then the drive is OK it's your system that has a problem.
If the disk is ejected again, then you can declare the drive dead. It is a relatively inexpensive repair and if your Mac is still under warranty, then apple will take care of this no charge.
Good luck

Disk Drive spits out brand new DVD+R DL cds


The drive in the G5 may not support DL discs. Open the system profiler (From the apple menu, select 'About This Mac' then select 'More Info'). Click on 'Disc Burning' in the left hand column. You will now get the details about the disc drive including which discs are supported.

My internal optical drive spits out dvd's and cd's.


When rebooting press and hold the Alt key until it displays all bootable drives. Now insert your disk. If it works install Leopard from here. If not then your drive is dead or faulty and needs checking or replacing.

All the best
