SOURCE: DVD rom rejecting DVD's , while accepting cd's

The light from DVD laser has a smaller wavelength (640 nanometers) than the light from the laser in a CD (780 nanometers)

A DVD/CD player has different laser beams. So if one is damage, the other can still function. In your case, the DVD laser beam/lens is probably damaged. It is hard to repair the problem and DVD reader/writers are cheap these days that it is better to get a new than to repair your old one.

If its making noises that you havent heard before and you can't get it to read any cds your putting in there then the drive is definitely bad and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: my Acer Aspire 7540 DVD Super Multi DL drive suddenly won't accept DVD's anymore

I ran into the same problem and found a program on www.download.com Type dvd repair, this program will fix most issues and worth saving on a flash drive, or hard drive for future repairs.

Replace iMac g5 20 hard drive


Hi John
Try reinstalling via your macbook pro but this way round.Put the Leopard Disk into the Macbook and then start the Macbook in Target mode.on the iMac start it up and hold down the Option (or Alt) key then wait.after a short while you will be offered the HD in the MacBook and the DVD. Choose the DVD and see what happens.
What happens when you do it the other war arounds is that you are installing a startup system for the MacBook onto the HD of the G5 and not the system for the G5. The installer uses the firmware of the motherboard that is running the install to select the correct version.
Another issue is that the disk formatting may be wrong. it's unlikely seeing that you used disk utility from the DVD, but it is possible.
Let us know how you get on.

My sony dvd oplayer/recorder only sometimes accepts the dvd-rw discs without displaying disc error


That is odd, the only other option is buy a DVD cleaning kit and follow the instructions it might solve your problem.

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!

CD/DVD drive will not accept any disk I try to put in it.


Do you have any small children in your house?
Seriously, I have 6 children. One (or two) of them put a quarter and two flat washers in my slot load CD drive. Took me over an hour to take it apart to fish them out.
I've also had a friend whose young children managed to get 2 cds into the slot load at the same time.
So, my primary suspect is a foreign object has gotten into the drive. I've never had a CD/DVD drive fail on an iMac other than that.
However, if it is a foreign object, you will need to take it in for repair, most likely. It is difficult to see in there. and even more difficult to grab the object.
I suppose that the cable could have become disconnected. I really doubt that the drive was a lemon, seeing that it worked for a year.

IMac with DVD issue


have you tried a cleaning disc? the buildup of gak on the lense could have become too bad to read, or the drive is toast.

Playing PS2 on apple iMac


if the iMac is one of the computers with the slot-load drive (you don't load the disc into a tray before it goes into the computer), then placing a disc smaller than a regular CD/DVD will damage the CD drive and will be very hard to remove.

you could buy an external CD/DVD drive and then use smaller discs with the iMac.
