Its probable that the disc is not finalized to be used on other pc's

Posted on Apr 23, 2009

  • Fritzelly Apr 23, 2009

    When ejecting the disc you should be given the option to close the disc or you may have to set the defaults on the drive to ask you what to do. This makes it readable by other pcs etc.

    Also the program that burnt the disc may have only burnt them in mac format, you need to set it for use on other machines.

  • Fritzelly Apr 23, 2009

    I dont know since i dont know the format used, as i said, programs like Toast which you're probably using have the option of the format to use when writing dvd's

Powerbook will not read or write a fresh dvd-rw


You cannot write onto a dvd-rw that has been formatted for Windows using a Mac Superdrive. Most likely, when you put the dvd-rw into a Windows machine w/Visa, you erased it, but actually it formatted the disc for Fat32 or other Windows format. Mac's are often brand-sensitive often when it comes to DVD. I've had luck with Memorex and HP, or Apple has their own which will work (from an Apple Store or Best Buy.)

Installed Parallels on mac but cannot connect to the internet.


When running your mac in the windows mode, insert your mac os dvd into the drive. It will launch the program to install all the software and settings to make your windows os very "mac-like".
I had the same problem. Mac has thought of that for us! Insert the Mac disc, let it fully run it's installation WHILE YOU"RE IN Windows os. It'll set up all the settings for wifi and everythng that one would normally have to set up in windows.
If you have a printer that you want to use on the windows os that is already working in the mac os, you can download a copy of bonjour from apple. This program will get your printers up and running as well in os.

Thsi is not the answer you are looking for but it is the truth. The answer is no. If neither of the Mac drivers listed works with your new 10.5.6 OS, then one has not been written and it is very unlikly one every will be written for an older product.   Sorry.

If your computer rejects the Mac OS X Installation DVD, it means that there's a good chance that your Mac doesn't have an Apple internal DVD drive or an Apple SuperDrive, you'll need Mac OS X 10.4 Install CDs.

If your mac is unable to read the CD or ejects it also, there's something wrong with your DVD\CD drive.

You might want to try loading the DVD on a second computer that is connected with a fire wire to the first computer.

Good luck.
