I can not install viber apple ibook g4.when ever i try to down load i am told the application viber can not supported by this architecture


Hi Christy,
Viber appears to work only with OSx 10.7 and up, which is not supported on an iBook.
When they say "viber can not supported by this architecture", they're referring to the iBook not having an Intel processor like the MacBooks do.
Hope this helps!

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.

''imac g4 does not see dvd drive after Xferring files and setting


when booting in os x after the first boot chime immediately hold down keys <apple,option,o,f> all at the same time and allow computer to boot to open firmware once there type "reset-nvram" exactly like that but without quotation marks and press enter once it returns to command prompt type "reset-all"and press enter (you must have the "-" in between the commands) the computer should restart if not when the command prompt returns type "reboot" and hit enter ..... also you can check the drive status by going to "system profiler" in apple drop down menu--->about this mac-->more info or applications folder-->utilities folder--->system profiler then selct disk burning under hardware in the list on the left

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.

IMac with DVD issue


have you tried a cleaning disc? the buildup of gak on the lense could have become too bad to read, or the drive is toast.
