My ibbok 3g wont play dvds or youtube? help


Many iBook G3s came with optical drives for CDs only, not DVDs; and the decoding software for many of today's popular video formats runs extremely slow on all G3 processors. It's not clear that there is anything wrong with your computer other than its age. The first iBook G3 models were ten years old last February.

Laptop will not play DVD and Sticks in Disk Drive


You must give your computer time to stop the servo, and unmount the device (please clarify if the time it takes is longer than usual). Have you tried opening the DVD app and open the disc from there?

Screen bright blue, wont turn off or on


Sounds like a Power Management problem.
First unplug the power cord and remove the battery. Leave off for 30 mins, then pop the battery back in and try to power up.
Failing that, follow this link on Apple's site. http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1365

When I plug in my Sandisk compact flash into the firewire port, my Macbook pro doesn't recognize it.


Try plugging it in BEFORE turning the computer on. I had a problem mounting my firewire external drive and when I went to this method it worked.

Good luck!!

DVD stuck in MacBook Pro but my laptop registers nothing...


If you look on the dvd drive there is a little round hole. Just get a paper clip and straighten it out and stick it into that hole. There is a little button that you push with the paper clip that is a manual eject button for cases like this.

Blinking file folder with question mark and a DVD is stuck in it


Hello, The blinking file folder with the question mark can happen when the computer doesn't "see" your System. It can be caused by a faulty hard drive, or by a damaged operating system. You can try to reboot the mac, hold the mouse button during 20 seconds to eject the CD, then insert you installation DVD (leopard). Reboot the Mac again, and hold the "C" key. Select english, the go to the tools menu, and Disk Utility. Go to the SOS tab, select your drive and click "repair". If something red appears, it means that it has found something wrong on your hard drive. Best regards

When I play a dvd or watch dvd programs on my mac frame freeze


Try getting a DVD player cleaning kit and clean your Mac's DVD drive.

You can also try using an external DVD drive to verify that it's the drive, and not the software, that is the problem.
