Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Dvd drive on 17'' Mac Book Pro not working. I bought this computer overseas and cannot easily get warranty service or return the computer to the store from I bought it. No matter which type of disk I put into the drive, DVD, CD-R, CD-RW, both commercially prepared and prepared on other's computers, the disk goes in the slot, but is spit back out after a few seconds. I can here the drive trying to access, so I suspect it is a problem within the drive.

Check the region settings, click on start, my computer and right click on the drive. next click on properties, open the hardware tab and select the drive from their. click on properties and select the region tab and select the region you need.click ok and then click apply.
also check that you have all the necessary codecs installed. visit www.freecodecs.com and download the latest codec pack for your operating system.
and update the drivers, www.drivermax.com for a free driver management program.
if all this fails, then the drive may be faulty or just a loose connection.
go into the device manager, start, control panel, system, device manager and check for fault codes, you can also update and roll back drivers from their.
I hope this will help.

How do I get the DVD out of my Mac Book Pro


A few ways of doing this

1) restart mac and press down the trackpad after you hear the startup noise

2) if that does not work try opening up disk utility and click on the icon of your disk under the left hand column then go up to eject button and click eject

3) or open up terminal found in the utilities folder within your applications folder and then type in
drutil tray eject and then press return

4) Finally what to do is try pick up your macbook tilt the macbook to the one side and press the eject key and hopefully the effect of gravity will allow the CD to fall out.


However, I would say that DVD drives in all macs are a bit suspect and if
your macbook is still under warranty or under AppleCare take it back to the Apple Store and tell them that the DVD drive is faulty and they will replace it free off charge.

If it is out of warranty there is one other way to do it which I have used recently but IT CAN BREAK THE DVD DRIVE (Use it at your own risk), so only use it as a last resort. Get a thin piece of plastic (or credit card) and put a piece of double sided tape on it then with the macbook switched off insert the piece of plastic with the tape facing down in relation to the keyboard. Put it in about half an inch and you may be able to drag the DVD out.


Hope this helps.

What courses the hard drive to file on a mac book pro laptop.


Hi Stephanie
This is one of those questions that's virtually impossible to answer, it could be anything.
Your best option is to take to a mac specialist (the dealer where you bought it) or to an Apple Store if you have one near by.
It may not need a new hard drive, it may just be corrupted and need sorting out. On the other hand it could have failed mechanically and will need to be replaced - check your warranty. There have been a number of reports of HDs failing in some models and Apple have replaced them free of charge as there was a manufacturing fault at the HD factory that didn't come to light until the drives had been running for about a year.
You have been using Time Machine to back up your work haven't you?
