My Macbook won't except my disk.

I try and put in my Civilization 4 disk into my MacBook, but when I do, it makes the receiving noise, than spits the disk out. I've had my laptop since Christmas, and never had this problem before.

My MacBook Pro won't read discs. ''mhmmm'' noise.

Hi Quilly There are two possible scenarios. 1. the lens on the cd drive is dirty and needs a clean , and 2. the drive itself has failed.
1 is easy to fix with a lens cleaning CD on a tray loading drive but is a bit more difficult on the slot-loader as the brush on the CD makes it rather difficult to insert. 2 needs a workshop and a new drive.

If your optical drive is not injecting DVDs/CDs, it can be either a problem with the drive itself our potentially the discs.

If the issue only happens with the Snow Leopard disc, contact Apple at 1-800-MY-APPLE and let them know as it may be defective disc.

Make sure the discs themselves are free of scratches and foreign substances. If there are light scratches, use a disc scratch repair solution/kit.

If the issue persists, try resetting your System Management Controller as per the following Apple article:

If the issue persists after this, your Macbook Proo likely needs repair.

My MacBook spits out my music..

Your MacBook only likes odd numbers.
Could be initial sign of failing optical drive. Try other format discs and see if they are ejected too.

Macbook won't detect!

First thing to do is to put in a CD cleaning disk. You can buy this at most electronics stores. Run this disk 4 or 5 times. I've never found that one pass was good enough. Then try one of the disks that your computer previously would not read. If that doesn't work, chances are that your drive is going bad. I don't know how long you've had the MacBook, but you should call Apple immediately to see if you can get a replacement drive for free.

Macbook won't accept CD's/DVD's in Disk Drive

do you usually lean or put any pressure on the area above the slot-load optical drive? If you have anything flat and plastic around 1/4" (about 1/2 the width as a USB plug) stick it in the optical drive until you just feel it going past the door, and rotate 90 degrees so it opens it a little. See attached photos if you aren't sure what I am talking about7804560.jpg
