Blu ray player won't play or eject disc


If you want to eject the CD you need to look on the front of the Blu-Ray drive for a small hole, about the size of a pencil-lead. If you open a paper clip and insert it, it should pop the drive open for you.

When i insert a cd or dvd into mu MAC powerbook


Check to see if your discs are dirty. Clean them and try again. Also, check to see if you got heavy scratches on the discs. Also, click on the blue apple logo at the top of the screen, then click on about this mac,then click on more info. Under the hardware click on the disc burning title. Look at CD write and DVD write info to see what the burner will play. If no info is there, then your optical drive is disconnected from the logic board or your optical drive is toast. If your optical drive spits out every single disc, then that also means it needs to be replaced.

PowerBook G4 won't eject cd by any means found on apple support


If you can hear that it's trying, it might be getting pinched while trying to eject, especially if something pressed down on the case at that spot. Try gently widening the opening with a flat head screwdriver while you are ejecting the CD. just put the driver in and twist a bit to widen the slot. Also, check to make sure that the fuzzy stuff that brushes off the disk when you insert it - and keeps out dust - hasn't been damaged. If it is partially missing, the missing part may be inside, keeping the CD from ejecting.

Disc drive ejects blank discs...plays dvds


Hi Again,

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. Work!

You need to let me know what type of PowerBook G4 it is as the instructions for each are different. However, what I will do is give you the links to the appropriate sites and some instructions for them:
  1. First you need to reset the Power Management Unit (PMU). To do this refer to THIS page. A little way down is a heading 'PowerBook and iBook models covered in this document'. Select the model listed in blue below this which will take you lower down the page to the instructions for your model.
  2. After restarting try your drive again. If it doesn't work, try a dvd drive cleaning disc.
  3. If it still doesn't work your drive is Kaput! If you're near Kent in the UK then I can help you out. If not find a local Apple Specialist who can replace the drive for you.
All the best
Sean
