Cd Drive in Mac iBook 4 is malfunctioning. Disc will not mount.


Shut the machine down. Find the original CD or a retail OS X installation DVD. Start the machine up and immediately hold down the option key. You will see a icon of your hard drive. Now insert the CD or DVD. If it immediately spits out, your optical drive needs replacement. If it does not, click on the U-shaped arrow button to rescan the drives. If the CD/DVD does not show up, your optical drive needs replacement. If it does, choose it and boot from it. If this actually works, you may have a software problem -- this is low probability, but possible.
Keep in mind that the CD and DVD read heads are separate. If one of those is malfunctioning, your drive will accept CDs but not DVDs, or vice versa. If you see this behavior, your optical drive needs replacement.

My Power mac G4 Quicksilver has problems. When i boot it up the chime comes on, and i see the boot up screen. Although in the middle of the screen there is a folder that is blinking a ? mark sign. I tried...


The folder with the blinking question mark means that your Mac cannot find a bootable system on the internal drive. This usually means either that the drive has been corrupted or is not accessible. The proper repair procedure is to boot from the system installation CD and use the Utility menu to run Disk Utility / Repair Disk on the internal drive. But at this point, I'd have to ask you to elaborate on your claim that you "messed up your Super Drive" before I can figure out how to proceed from where you are.

Having problems with Quark 6.5 since upgrading to 10.4.11. It crashes unexpectedly especially when using magnif. tool. Is there a conflict with Quark 6 5 and OS 10 4 11? If so how can it be repaired?


You most likely do need to upgrade Quark. There is a known problem with 6.5 and Tiger, since 10.4 was a major departure from Jaguar, which Quark 6.5 was designed for.

Before you do that though, you might want to explore font cache issues that can also cause this. Here's a free tool and writeup on the subject: http://www.jamapi.com/pr/fn/

Folder with blinking question mark in it after start-up


Folder with a blinking question mark means a missing system folder, in other words there isn't an OS installed. To fix this you need to boot from the OS X installer CD. With the OS X installer CD in the drive, hold down the C key on your keyboard when you start your mac. This tells the mac to boot from the optical drive (i.e. CD drive) and load the OS X installer. From there just follow the onscreen instructions to install OS X.
Also, you should be aware that the ibook is not compatible with Windows XP. Only the newer “intel macs” of the past few years are compatible with XP. Your mac predates Apple's transition to intel processors and Windows XP compatibility on the mac platform by a few years. This is why your Windows XP CD didn't load on it. The ibook is Mac OS X only.
It only runs on Mac OS X however it is compatible with newer versions of the OS. 10.2 jaguar is kind of old and a little buggy. You may want to consider installing 10.4 Tiger for improved stability and performance. Avoid the newest version (10.5 Leopard) as it is geared towards newer and faster machines.
Hope this helps. Enjoy your mac

Disk Drive spits out brand new DVD+R DL cds


The drive in the G5 may not support DL discs. Open the system profiler (From the apple menu, select 'About This Mac' then select 'More Info'). Click on 'Disc Burning' in the left hand column. You will now get the details about the disc drive including which discs are supported.
