I have a G4 ibook. When I try to load Rosetta Stone on computer it acts like it wants to load but then all the sudden it goes to a blank screen. If you can help please do. The software worked the first...

Isolate the problem to make sure its not the optical reader.  Get a music CD and try to see if it will play, then get a DVD out to see if it will play, then get another software disc to see if it will play.  Will all three play fine?  Then your Rosetta disc is fu.k.d up from heavy scratches, smudges, or corrupt manufacturing process. Otherwise, your optical drive needs to be replaced if it has problems playing the other discs.

New Sharp BD-HP16U won't play Blu Ray Discs

You need to force the player to the the Top Menu of the disc.
The way to do this is: load disc, wait until it says "Reading Completed" (about 1 minute).

Wait for the PLAY icon ">" to show in the upper right corner (this may take up to 30-40 secs).

Once you see the ">" Hit the STOP button on the remote to get to the player's splash screen.

From the Sharp splash screen Hit the "Top Menu/Title List" button on the remote and wait for the circulating dots and then the disc menu appears.
Play the movie from the menu and you should be good to go.

Will not let me play any games

When you put in a disc, listen for the disc to start spinning. If you do not hear that then the laser and/or the spindle have blown out. You will have to get your Blu-Ray player serviced by a pro or Sony. Sony may fix it for free. They know that the drives are failing. So call them first.
Also, I highly doubt it is the hard drive as it has nothing to do with loading up the disc. It will only engage after the laser has initialized and loaded the disc.
I hope this helps! Good luck to you.

Kenwood RXD25 CD player intermitent??

Hi jenoss

Sounds like the unit has either a failing load belt to the cd drawer mechanism,not allowing the transport to fully load the cd. Give the unit a gentle tap just after the drawer closes and see if it resolves the problem.

OR a faulty spindle motor, you will have to take the lid off and after pressing play, give the disc a gentle "kickstart". If it then begins to run, then the motor is the problem.

If you find it is neither of these, get back to me here and I we shall go further
