Question about Computers & Internet
Won't even recognize it or spin it up. No error codes, just nothing. Disc utility says "waiting for disc to be inserted" when its in. Using mac mini with OS10.7.5 Lion. Had this burner for years and it burns fine to blanks using disc utilities but it won't spin up a pre-recorded DVD, such as a movie or instructional video that is marked both windows and mac compatible. Do I need some sort of viewing software or a driver? Sony doesn't offer one on their site for this drive w/ mac, altho it was sold as mac compatible.
You hvave to check the compatibility first. next is the location rights to play the movie dvd ., other wise., the dvd locks the play.

The device is _partially_ broken -- the part that reads/writes DVD media is "dead".
Spend $40 to purchase a new CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" unit.
