SOURCE: Disc drive ejects blank discs...plays dvds

Hi Again,

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. Work!

You need to let me know what type of PowerBook G4 it is as the instructions for each are different. However, what I will do is give you the links to the appropriate sites and some instructions for them:

  1. First you need to reset the Power Management Unit (PMU). To do this refer to THIS page. A little way down is a heading 'PowerBook and iBook models covered in this document'. Select the model listed in blue below this which will take you lower down the page to the instructions for your model.
  2. After restarting try your drive again. If it doesn't work, try a dvd drive cleaning disc.
  3. If it still doesn't work your drive is Kaput! If you're near Kent in the UK then I can help you out. If not find a local Apple Specialist who can replace the drive for you.
All the best
Sean

Nec dvd+-rw nd-6650a stop burning dvds


It's time to replace the defective (and probably warranty-expired) unit.

If your computer is a notebook, not a desktop, it's best to take the computer to a qualified technician, to disassemble your computer, and replace the drive.

Not able to burn dvd


Hello,
Some dvds have different dyes and as such some dvd rws wont recognise them, i had this problem with my new laptop and I only discovered it when i tried to burn back up discs. generally dvdr- are more suited for burning from your computer, you could try using differnt blank dvds AONE and RI-DISC are good discs, if you are unsure ask at your local pc shop ,if your in Glasgow Priceless computing offer good advice and carry a large selection of dvds, I would avoid the pound shop as the quality of their dvds is poor, should the problem persist take the dvdrw back to the shop where you bought it from, I hope that you are lucky.
Have you tried using MAGIC DVD RIPPER ? this is a program that allows you to copy dvds to your hard drive in dvd quality and you can then burn them to disc using nero, you get a free trial of this program from magicdvdripper, its good if you rent a dvd and want to keep a copy, anyway please let me know how you get on.

Best wishes.

DVDs Wont play


Check the specs on your dvd player. Not all players will read dvd-r discs. Some players will only read commercially produced dvds. Hope this helps & please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks.

most recent apples will not take small discs, use a firewire lead and import on to iMovie then export to iDVD (you can edit simply in iMovie) and burn as many dvds as you want

My dvd burner wont burn dvd's it says insert a blank disc and it is already in the burner


try 3 things. ONE AT A TIME. #1 change your burn speed to a slower setting some dvd's will not burn as fast as they say on box.

#2.update firm ware for burner go to manufacturer's web site for your brand of dvds being used.

#3 change brand of DVD used. there are 3 major manufactures for almost all dvds and cd. The people who make disc for Sony and the other 2 companies that make everybody elses. (ie TDK,Memorex, etc....)
