There seems to be a problem with the superdrives in the MacBooks. I had mine replaced under extended warranty last month. If your Mac is under warranty, bring it in to the Apple store.
Several macbook users in the past have had success with their optical drive reading disks by turning the laptop upside down and then inserting the chosen CD. Might as well give that a try in your situation.

Drives are available online. Let me know if you need instructions on how to r/r the drive.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Software disc is too small, macbook pro will not accept the disc


Hi, if the Macbook can't read the Mini discs, you can copy the contents of the Mini Disc to any USB Flash Drive by inserting the Mini Disc in any Desktop Computer's CD/DVD Drive. After copying the Mini disc contents to USB Flash Drive you can install in the Macbook pro. var geo_Partner = '843689b9-ba30-459d-9c4b-876924715b22'; var geo_isCG = true;

My MacBook Pro won't read discs. ''mhmmm'' noise.


Hi Quilly There are two possible scenarios. 1. the lens on the cd drive is dirty and needs a clean , and 2. the drive itself has failed.
1 is easy to fix with a lens cleaning CD on a tray loading drive but is a bit more difficult on the slot-loader as the brush on the CD makes it rather difficult to insert. 2 needs a workshop and a new drive.

I was pretty disappointed when I couldn't play a 12 year old game on my new macbook either. The best thing to do is go to battle.net, load up the CD key and then load the software onto your mac. The downside is that you will need internet access before playing even if you play single player. That's the way I got around it.

Cannor Read DVDs


I have a similar issue to you, except that my dvd drive will only recognize a disc if I have booted up into windows with it in the tray...once in windows it will still think it has the first disc in no matter what disc i insert. If i boot up with no disc then it will never read it unless I follow the steps below.

A solution I found by pure frustration and trying all sorts of things is to eject the DVD tray and leave it opened, then right click on the dvd drive in 'my computer' and select the 'hardware' tab...then select the drive and click 'properties'.
A new window should open. Select 'volumes' and click 'populate'. Now close the window and insert the disc you wish to read, close the tray and repeat this process. Windows should now recognize the disc you inserted

Alot of trouble I know, but it works for me. Hope this helps.

Macbook DVD drive


I wonder if the DVD is a faster disc than the Mac can handle. I know that when I use a 40x CD disc on a G5 optical drive, it's no go. But if I use a 4x disc, it's a happy camper. I bought an external drive to handle the faster discs.

Dvd rom problems with my macbook


Does the computer immediately return the discs after they're inserted or do you have to manually eject them? If it's trying to read the discs then there could be a problem with the type of disc. However if it just ejects the disc immediately, there could be a recognition problem. So, if your computer doesn't recognize that a disc is in the drive, you can check several things. 1. Check to see that the computer actually reads DVDs. To do this, open the System Profiler in the Utilities folder. Click on ATA/Devices and Volumes/Disc Burning. Those are three different options but each will tell you if the drive actually does run DVDs. If it shows DVDRW or DVD, but if it only shows CD or CD-RW, then it won't play a DVD. 2. If it shows that it accepts DVDs through the System Profiler, then you'll need to check to see if the actual drive is attached. You can open your computer through the battery with a screw driver. Once open, you'll need to check the connecting cable to the drive. If it's attached properly/securely, you may need to take it to a technician. The drive me be malfunctioning and need professional repair.
