Try starting up your macbook while holding down the trackpad button.
I have had the same experience with my macbook (because of impact). it will have to be pushed in most of the way before it accepts it. You may have to wait for it to start working by itself.

If you machine is a CORE2DUO, you should still be under applecare and a local applestore or certified service shop should replace it for free, if not, you may need the drive replaced or bypass it and purchase a firewire external.



Keep me posted.

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 3,1 superdrive slot load optical disc drive won't accept CD's of any kind. The disc will physically get all the way in the drive (as in I cannot see any part of it or push it in any further) but...


There is no need to force the disc into the optical drive. You should be able to stick half of the disc into the optical drive and it should see it, grabbing it the rest of the way in.
But it sounds like the optical drive is failing and it will need to be replaced.

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,

Switch on - screen is grey with flashing folder with questionmark


Hard drive is dead or the signal from the hard drive is not being read by the ide controller. I'm working on a MacBook 13 inch right now with the same issue. I had a spare hard drive and a windows Vista disc, so I installed the hard drive and inserted the vista install disc and the laptop loaded and installed Vista on the Mac with no issues. I took the hard drive from the Mac and attached an adapter to it and ran it through a usb on another laptop and the laptop could not read the files on the drive....so, the drive was bad.

My macbook isnt reading any discs.


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

My macbook will not start up. It just keeps the apple logo and the "thinking" symbol.


Start up from the OSX disc by holding down the 'C' key on powering on. From the top toolbar, select 'Disc Utility' from the 'Utilities' menu.
Select the hard drive in the left hand column ans run 'First Aid'.
This will diagnose and repair any problems with the hard drive unless the drive is beyond recovery, in which case you will need to replace the hard drive.
