Why does cd rom not conned to my macbook?


I'm not sure about this, because I have an internal CD/DVD in my macbook. But this can be a driver issue. Do you have an Apple CD drive, or an universal USB CD drive? The last one could be very tricky, because the computer needs special drivers, so it can recognise the external drive.

I have macpro 13inc.my problem is my disc is not working with the eject is not function.so still my dish is inside of my disc unit how can i remove manually pls. give me instruction properly thanks lot...


Thanks for contacting Fixya Support.

With the Macbook Pro 13" having a Superdrive or Combo optical drive, you are dealing with a slot-loaded drive. As a result, if you have a disc that is loaded into your optical drive, which will not eject, then there isn't a manual way to remove the disc without causing damage to either the optical drive or the disc itself.

In most cases, of a potentially stuck disc in a Apple notebook's optical drive, a visit to your local Apple Retail Store Genius Bar or local Apple-authorized service center would be highly recommended.

With that noted however, here are some troubleshooting steps to try from the Mac OS X side first before having to take that step and visit an Apple service provider:

- CD DVD EJECT -

- - Reboot your Macbook Pro 13"

- - Hold down your Media Eject key on your keyboard pad prior to the Apple Chime starting.

- - Keep holding the Media Eject key down while your Macbook Pro 13" boots up

- - The disc should eject before you reach your Desktop

- - When it does, simply release your Media Eject key.

If that does not work, try this:

-EJECTING DISC USING TERMINAL-

From your Desktop:

* Click anywhere on a blank space on your desktop. Now you should see Finder listed near the Apple menu icon.


* From the Finder menu, click on Go, then Utilities from the

drop-down menu. This will take you to your Utilities folder.

* Locate and open the Terminal application.

* At prompt, type: drutil eject and press the Return key on your keyboard


This command line should eject the disc from the drive, unless there are mechanical issues with the drive.

If neither of these steps work, then I would be remiss as an Apple Certified Tech, if I did not recommend you proceed to take your Macbook Pro 13" in for service.

I hope this helps.

Best Regards,

Transfer macbook pro music


There are a number of different ways to do this. If you have an external hard drive, all you need to do is drag the Macintosh HD/[your user name here]/Users/Music/iTunes folder onto the external drive, connect the external drive to your Macbook, and drag and drop the iTunes folder from the external drive onto the iTunes icon in the dock. <br /><br />If you have an iPod classic, you can do this: <br /><br />http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1329<br /><br />...or if you don't have a huge library and/or have a lot of CDs/DVDs you can use, you can back up your library to disc: <br /><br />http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1382<br /><br />...or if you have anything other other sort of iPod, iPhone, or iPad, you can rip the music from it using this utility: <br /><br />http://thelittleappfactory.com/irip/<br /><br />

Hi, I m a new user of apple mac book, I m trying to insert a disk in my dvd rom but still i am not able to open my dvd player. Can u help me that how will be open the dvd rom in apple mac book? means any...


Hi,
I would please like to tell you there is no button in MACBOOK to eject a tray as there is no tray.
You simply see a line on the right hand side of your laptop where you can insert a disc, u need to insert a disc into that part and when you insert it you will show you an icon on your desktop showing you the cd contents.
When you want to eject it keep in mind u need to click on the icon on your desktop and press the eject button or u can also use the keyboard and press the eject button, which will bring the disc out automatically.
Please do not worry try it, I'am sure it will work for you.
If there would be any problem and you need any help please do not hesitate to ask.
I'am also giving you a link to see the video of how to insert and eject the cd, please note this is the old model of the macbook, the only difference is that the drive is now located in the right hand side of the laptop, dont worry take a look.

My external drive is no longer consistently recognizing 8.6 gb 2048 byte sector disks. it works sometimes after inserting and ejecting the disks multiple times. when the green light stops blinking i know...


Make sure you are buying the discs labeled DL

The DL stands for dual layer.

If you do not buy the DL you can not have the 8.6 gig write space.

I usually just buy R- DL(not the R+) since R- works on all the PC drives and all the old mac drives.

What are some of the things i can do to beef up my gt5220


easy options
(1) buy an external hard drive
(2) up grade memory
(3) run disc clean up- click start, all programs, accessories, system tools, disc clean up.
Run the disc cleanup on drive "c", be careful not to erase compress old files as you can lose some important older docs if you do.
Does this help in any way?

Low disk space and I did clear files.


Low disc space really means nothing, but low disc space.

I understand you have cleared your files, but your going to have to remove more....if you have excessive music, pictures, and videos...try backing them up to a DVD or flash drive, then deleting them off of the computer.

If you cannot seem to clear anymore space the next thing to do would be purchasing an external hard drive. This way you can save files on that drive while not adding anymore to the current drive. You can view some external hard drives here
