Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an iBook G4 and for some reason, no matter what brand of blank CD I put in, it won't show on the desktop OR in a separate finder window. iTunes comes up... but I don't want to burn a music CD...I want to burn pictures onto a disc. I guess my question is two-fold: 1) How do I get a CD to show up on my finder and desktop, and 2) How do I get my computer to stop immediately opening iTunes and instead ask me which program I want to open the CD with?

Hello there, both questions can actually be answered at the same time - at one point, it seems the autoplay menu that normally pops up when you pop a blank disc in has been told to do the "open iTunes" action every time. To change this, go to the Apple Menu -> System Preferences, CDs & DVDs (should be in the upper left corner of the window), and make sure that the "When you insert a blank CD" and "blank DVD" both say "Ask me what to do" next to them - if not, then change it so that they do. Now, it anytime you pop in a blank disc, it will ask you what to do, and you can tell it "open with Finder" when needed, or "open with iTunes" if you want to open it in there.

Ibook g4 screen issue


That screen will most likely be compatible - I work on these for a living. The G3 laptop screens are usually not compatible with the G4 laptops, but all G4 laptop screens are compatible with eachother (provided they are the same size, of course.

CD drive + Flash drive not detected


Some of the iBook G4 optical drives are very sensitive. The best way to test if it is still working is to use the System Disks that comes with every Mac.
Regarding the Flash disk, it may be that your iBook is using USB 1.1 protocol, while your Flash is using USB 2.0. You can check what type of USB your iBook has in the System Profiler. If it is 1.1, then you are out of luck. If its USB 2.0, then you have a faulty logic board.
Either way, not good news for you. Sorry.

Freezing is a HD problem. Do you hear clicking sometimes? Sometimes on boot up is there a foler with a questionmark in it? I would get your hard drive looked at, this is the reason disc utility fails. Your hard drive has a hiccup.
