How many hours does it take to replace a DVD drive in a 14" iBook G4? Someone told me it can take up to 8 hours.


Should not take more than 1 hour. I have had one of these apart. It isn't the easiest of the iBooks to take apart, but it doesn't take more than an hour. Maybe a total of 2 hours to take apart replace and put back together for someone that has never done it before.

Stuck dvd


Where your cd drive is there is a small hole which you can insert a straightened paper clip into and this should eject the dvd. Hope this helps.

My ibook G4 has stopped reading my external dvd drive.


If you external DVD drive connects via USB, try rebooting your iBook. (Sometimes a static shock will shut down your USB channel, and only a reboot will reset it.)
If this doesn't work, choose "About This Mac" under the Apple menu, then click on "More Info." Under Hardware, click on USB. See if the drive shows up as one of the attached USB devices. If it does not, the drive or cable may be bad.
If you have another computer available, connect your DVD drive to it. This will tell you whether the drive has failed.

Dvd stuck in ibook g4 disc drive


Here's possibility 1: from the apple forums" We had a repair come in at work with excactly the same issue, I managed to correct the issue by correcting the CD-Drive connection to the logic board, the customer had a very VERY big smile on his face once I had fixed. I felt so happy after this repair, unfortunatly, it earned our AASP no money tho. But it made me happy to see a smile I caused.
Possibility 2: firmware command:To eject a disc with Open Firmware commands, follow these steps:
1. Restart the computer .
2. Immediately after the startup sound, press and hold the key
combination Command-Option-O-F.
Note: The Command key has the Apple icon on it.
3. Release the keys when you see a white screen that says "Welcome to
Open Firmware."
4. At the prompt, type: eject cd
5. Press Return, then wait a few seconds. The disc drive should eject
any disc that is present, and "ok" appears behind your command when the
action is complete.
6. Type: mac-boot
7. Press Return.

Possiblity 3

If you can't get the CD to eject normally, reboot and hold the Option key. You'll see a startup drive select window. When the cursor changes to an arrow, (be patient, it may take a minute or two) then press your eject key, the CD will eject. You can also try holding the mouse/trackpad button down during a restart.

CD drive + Flash drive not detected


Some of the iBook G4 optical drives are very sensitive. The best way to test if it is still working is to use the System Disks that comes with every Mac.
Regarding the Flash disk, it may be that your iBook is using USB 1.1 protocol, while your Flash is using USB 2.0. You can check what type of USB your iBook has in the System Profiler. If it is 1.1, then you are out of luck. If its USB 2.0, then you have a faulty logic board.
Either way, not good news for you. Sorry.

No luck


Probably the dvd drive is damaged (boot the computer with a bootable cd and see if it works, if not, change the drive), or it might have weak connection in it's slot, remove it and reinsert it in the laptop, see if it works.
