My MacBook Pro won't read discs. ''mhmmm'' noise.

My MacBook Pro won't read discs. It takes them, then makes a sort of ''mhmm'' noise and then proceeds to spit them out. I've tried many different discs, but I always get the same result. Is there a quick fix for this?

Hi Quilly There are two possible scenarios. 1. the lens on the cd drive is dirty and needs a clean , and 2. the drive itself has failed.
1 is easy to fix with a lens cleaning CD on a tray loading drive but is a bit more difficult on the slot-loader as the brush on the CD makes it rather difficult to insert. 2 needs a workshop and a new drive.

It is possible to do this yourself. But of you are not very tech savvy and are not confident with yourself, I'd recommend a certified technician.

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;

I was pretty disappointed when I couldn't play a 12 year old game on my new macbook either. The best thing to do is go to battle.net, load up the CD key and then load the software onto your mac. The downside is that you will need internet access before playing even if you play single player. That's the way I got around it.

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.

Macbook DVD drive


I wonder if the DVD is a faster disc than the Mac can handle. I know that when I use a 40x CD disc on a G5 optical drive, it's no go. But if I use a 4x disc, it's a happy camper. I bought an external drive to handle the faster discs.

Macbook pro + IBM m4000


Depends on the connections you have on both. Most MacBook Pros have a DVI connector on the side. If the IBM projector takes that sort of input, then all you need is that cable.
If the IBM projector has a VGA input, then you'll need an adaptor from DVI to VGA.
(VGA input is standard monitor looking connector.)
