Rejected cd


If it does it to all disks you are using, it is likely that either the drive is bad, or you are putting them in upside down.

Apple 2.5" cd


It can't be done on any slot loading CD/DVD drive. It needs to be loaded into an old style tray loading drive. It sits in the indentation in the middle of the tray. These drives are available in external USB boxes or you could load the CD in an old PC and network it across to the Mac.

Cd burn error apple mac mini


Did you use the same Maxell blank CD's in the other mini?
If so, it sounds like your drive may be failing/failed. Try another brand of CD in the superdrive just in case. I have found that drives that are beginning to fail will have problems with some brands but not others. Sometimes they'll go totally dead a while after that point, others will still be ok with another brand that they "like" more.

Not ejecting the Mini CD


While the most popular option is to take it to a shop, it is possible, if you want to avoid any monetary charges, try using this site; http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1050337&tstart=0
While meant for Mac users, the commonality of the slot loading drive lets you get some good info from it.
However, if you don't mind, take it to a shop, to avoid possibly damaging components/endangering the warranty.

Just an important note, while most of them don't say so, the slot loading drives will only work with full sized disks due to its design.

If your computer rejects the Mac OS X Installation DVD, it means that there's a good chance that your Mac doesn't have an Apple internal DVD drive or an Apple SuperDrive, you'll need Mac OS X 10.4 Install CDs.

If your mac is unable to read the CD or ejects it also, there's something wrong with your DVD\CD drive.

You might want to try loading the DVD on a second computer that is connected with a fire wire to the first computer.

Good luck.
