Hello,
The Mac can read DVDs, but not all of them: you will see supported DVDs  in the Apple menu - About this mac - More Info - Under "Hardware", select "Disc Burning". You should see the CD/DVD writing capabilities.
For my mac it's 
-R, -RW, -R DL, -RW, +R, +R DL, +RW

First@gmail.com, 2006 malibu cd player keeps the cd, doesn't eject or take the cd, but plays fine. Is there a part I can replace myself?


Is it a burned CD-R? I know (this is probably the same on a 2006) that on my 2005 if you put one in, it will play fine then lock the disc in. There is a fuse pannel on the passenger side on the center of the console towards the front of the car. Just pull the plastic cover off. Find the 10A fuse by the little grey box, and a blue and white circle. (or just look for the fuse labled "RADIO" on the map inside the plastic cover and then locate it in the fuse box). Turn the key off, pull the fuse, turn the key back on for a sec and the radio will not come on. turn the key off, put the fuse back in and turn the key on. the disc should either come out or you will have to push eject. This may or may not work, some people say it doesn't work for them. (this may reset the radio number buttons memory). Hope this helps!

Toshiba Satellite a135-s2386 won't bootup and CD/DVD drive won't open. The power button, plug button and battery button all come on. I tried taking out the RAM and switching the 2 RAM sticks. I also took...


I assume there is a specific reason that you mentioned the DVD drive won't open. Is it because there is a disk in it that you are trying to remove, and you can't because the laptop won't boot? You can open the DVD drive with a pin or paperclip. There is a little hole in the drive near the eject or open button. Insert a small pin or paperclip straight into that hole and push. It should pop open.

My playstation won't eject the disc, it just beeps like there is no disc in there,


have you tried holding down the eject button for 20 sec
it should do a force eject the fan in the rear will triple in rotational speed thats how you will know if your console is even trying to do it
but turn off your console via the rear switch and then turn it back on so you see the red light
while the red light is one go ahead and hold the eject button till you hear the fans if 20 to 30 sec go by it might not work but this should solve your problem hoep i was helpful rate high~!

Stuck DVDs


i put in a DVD yesterday and it got stuck in the machine. no mtter what i did, it wouldn't eject. it just said "No Disc". I read all the posts here and everywhere on the net. none of them worked (Stop +2-5-9), eject right after powering up. So, i called Phillips and the guy told me to unplug the machine and wait at least 5 minutes. then plug it back in, and HOLD the power button down for at least 30 seconds. after about 20 seconds it will flash some stuff on the little screen. keep holding the button. then push eject button. AND IT WORKED. the disc ejected. Now i am going to upgrade the firmware. i let the phillips guy know that they should be embarassed to have sold this unit. i am anxious to see if the firmware upgrade will fix this issue. the download for the firmware can be found at www.philips.com. search for the unit (HTS6500) under support link on top. at least i know now that i can get a disc out if its stuck.

Phillips 6500 home theater system


Turn the power off, and then unplug the home theater from the wall outlet. Plug it back in after about 30 seconds, and turn it back on. If it still won't eject, then the HTS needs repair. Philips will replace it if it is still in warranty.

Can't record DVDs


OK. Finally "solved" this problem. You must use the brand name "Maxell" DVD disks, 2x or 4x (maybe 8x). Do not use variable speed disks (e.g. 1x--4x) or 16x. Walmart carries these!

The DVR -RW 2x finally got mine to record. I didn't think this would work, but it did. I am still experimenting with it. Had to download (free) VLC player to get it to play on my computer. Works fine in other DVD players.

Credits to the Sears' repairman, the guy at F., and my patience!
