First thing to do is to put in a CD cleaning disk. You can buy this at most electronics stores. Run this disk 4 or 5 times. I've never found that one pass was good enough. Then try one of the disks that your computer previously would not read. If that doesn't work, chances are that your drive is going bad. I don't know how long you've had the MacBook, but you should call Apple immediately to see if you can get a replacement drive for free.

My macbook won't start. how do I eject an audio CD?


You could be right. What to do is start it up and hold down the trakcpad button as soon as it starts up. Failing that try the F12 key or the eject key when starting it up, sometimes actually lifting the macbook up and pointing the DVD drive downwards i.e. using gravity to let the CD drop.

If the CD ejects and it isn't the problem causing the startup problems, what I would be tempted to do if the other troubleshooting solutions have not worked, if it still under warranty or if you have Applecare, contact apple and arrange to get it taken in for repair. Failing that take it to your local Apple Store and make an appointment at the genius bar, they usually are fairly good at diagnosing problems and solving them.

CD won't eject from MacBook Pro


Keep the eject button held down on switch-on.

Otherwise you'll have to have the drive dismantled.

Hawking HWDN2 won't detect wifi networks when installed in a Macbook. However, it works fine on a WinXP PC.


That is because the macbook can't interface with it. Windows is a much more common OS than OS X, therefore most manufacturers focus on providing windows drivers. On top of that, Apple doesn't like to support things that it didn't make(and overcharge you for). So there is no driver for it on OS X, therefor the macbook has no way to communicate with it.

Welcome to Fixya

You dont need a CD or driver to connect to time capsule. All you need to do is to have you MACbook detect the Time capsuple. Open AirPort Utility, select Time Capsule, and click Continue. Enter the password of the time capsule if incase you secured the router.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Hi i have an apple display connected to my macbook


Unplug the display from your macbook, and restart your macbook, when it's fully restarted and you are logged in, plug the display back in, then check to see if it is detected. Macbooks don't like to be put to sleep (shutting the lid) with a display connected, this causes issues with display detection. So always unplug your display and wait about 5 seconds before closing the lid on your macbook, and when you open the lid, wait another 5 seconds before plugging in your display. The only time it is acceptable to leave the display plugged in when you close the lid is when you plan to use the macbook in clamshell mode, this is done by plugging in and configuring your display, shutting the lid, and then "waking" the macbook from sleep mode with an external mouse (wired or wireless will work). That will start the macbook using the external display as the main display, without even turning on the macbook built-in display. Never connect or disconnect an external display when your macbook is off or in sleep mode. Have a nice day.

CD not coming out of my MacBook


Things I might try that you may or may not have tried already:
  1. Reboot and try to eject again.
  2. Reboot and hold down your mouse button during start up.
  3. Reboot and hold down your the eject button during start up.
If those don't work, check to see if your disk drive is warped in anyway. My old MacBook would only eject if I pried the slot open a little.

I hope you can get your disc out.
