Why does my iMAC 4,2 reject blank DVD-Rs but plays burned DVDs?


Your machine has a DVD-rom drive, but not a DVD-burner. There is a difference.

Basically, you can read and play the DVD's, but the drive is not capable of burning them.

Mac mini superdrive ejects discs


Hi
I think the answer is in your question. Pioneer DVD-RW drive, DVD+R disc.
For some reason known only to Apple, some drives do not work with all discs. Mine will not burn -R dual Layer discs.

Matshita Cd-rw Cw-8124 - problem writing to maxell dvd-r 4.7GB 2 hr ..... I am brand new to apple computers so it is actually not intuitive to me how to make this happen.... it keeps kicking this disk out...


Hi Paul
Just a guess. Your description says CD-RW which would suggest that it will not record to DVD. In fact a quick check of the spec for CW-8124 says it is a CD recorder/rewriter and DVD-Rom (i.e. player).
Apple did this for quite a long time, you only got the DVD recorder (Superdrive in Apple talk) in the more expensive models or in the build-to-order models.
Now you get DVD recording in all the models.
Easiest option is to buy an external recorder. (You could if you felt the urge, open the mini up and fit a new drive.)

CDs get stuck in the slot of my mac mini---3 years old.


Ok, let's go through the options in case you have missed one. Command E, Open Finder and click eject button next too it's name, dragging the item to trash, press F12, or hitting eject on the keyboard. If none of those work make sure the drive is not just busy. Sometimes you have to wait a few seconds even after stopping the application. You can use Disk Utility in Applications/Utilities to eject a CD. Open Terminal and type drutil tray eject If that fails, in Terminal type drutil list and then look at the list and find the drive. Tyoe drutil tray eject 1 The 1 should be replace with whatever drive # you found in the list.

I have a HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4481B installed in a eMac running 10.5.6. This drive will only read Mac Install disks. No DVD Video disks and no CD-ROM disks. What can I do ?


Go to company web site and see if there is a firmware update for the unit, you may have to put it in a PC to flash it if there is no mac version.
