Question about Apple MacBook Pro Laptop Computer with Intel Duo Core 15.4 Inch PC Notebook

1 Answer

I have the same problem with my 2006 macbook pro and I need to install snow leopard, but I cant! CDs and DVDs will go in, i can hear the noise of the computer taking in my disk, but then it sits there for a moment and spits it out. I really need to fix this, my warranty expired about a month ago.

    Your disks need to be quite clean. You need to be more specific. You said "I have the same problem with my..." but you really don't make it clear what that means. The same problem as what?

If your optical drive is not injecting DVDs/CDs, it can be either a problem with the drive itself our potentially the discs.

If the issue only happens with the Snow Leopard disc, contact Apple at 1-800-MY-APPLE and let them know as it may be defective disc.

Make sure the discs themselves are free of scratches and foreign substances. If there are light scratches, use a disc scratch repair solution/kit.

If the issue persists, try resetting your System Management Controller as per the following Apple article:

If the issue persists after this, your Macbook Proo likely needs repair.

I am running OS X 10.4.11 and would like to upgrade my operating system?


Please provide more information.
To what would you like to upgrade it?

Since OSX Mavericks was just announced, I'm going to assume that's what you're wanting to upgrade to.

Not all Macs can run Mavericks.

Mavericks Capable Macs

Mavericks, like its predecessor Mountain Lion, requires one of the following Macs with at least 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of available hard drive space:
  • iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
  • MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
  • MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
  • Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
  • Xserve (Early 2009)

If your Mac isn't one of the ones listed above, you won't be able to upgrade.

If you have an iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, or Mac mini model that was originally released in Early/Mid 2006, the latest version of Mac OS X your system supports is Snow Leopard.

Hi! My computer (Macbook pro) doesn't seem to recognize my Nikon Coolscan IV software and I get the following message


You've not said what the message is but I suspect that the software is too old to be used on the macbook if it is running OS X 10.7 (Lion) or if you are running snow leopard, it may be a non-intel version of the software. It may be asking you to instal rosetta which would be on your snow leopard instal disk.

If the Nikon website does not have updated software you could try vuescan which according to this page http://www.hamrick.com/vuescan/nikon_coolscan_iv_ed.html does work with the film scanner and you can download a demo version which you can trial before you buy. Hope this helps.

Lost install disk for Mac book pro My 13" Mac book


You will need some install disks to even begin working on your issue.
Your options:
  • Find someone with the same model MacBook Pro and borrow the disks.
  • Buy a copy of Leopard (10.5) or Snow Leopard (10.6) and use them. If you are going to buy a set you might as well update to Snow Leopard (10.6)
  • Check eBay for install disks but make sure they are for the same model MacBook Pro.
  • Contact an Apple service center and purchase a replacement set of install disks.
Once you have a install CD, I would recommend backing up your system by making a disk image of the hard drive to an external drive. Then doing a clean install and then using the Migration Assistant to restore your user files to the clean install on your hard drive.
