Question about Iomega (32885) CD-RW Burner

1 Answer

My Iomega CDRW64001 keeps ejecting my blank CDs. The external LED blinks for several minutes and then ejects the CD with or without a burn program open. It plays recorded CDs and I'm able to install programs from CD. The CDs I have been using had been working for a long time, so I don't believe its a compatibility issue with the CDs and I've reinstalled the drivers and Adaptec Easy CD Creator. I am running Win98SE and try to move the music to a more up-to-date computer, but all my USB, Internet and other devices are failing also.

Your best solution (since your USB devices and your network-adapter are not working) is to remove the disk-drive from the old computer, and temporarily connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in the new computer, and then copy all your files from "old" to "new".

Or, try a different brand of "blank" CD-R disks -- the "firmware" (software inside the CD-writer) may not be recognizing "newly-manufactured" media). Unless you can update the firmware (by downloading the latest firmware on another computer, and burning a CD-R disk, and then taking that disk to your computer), it's easiest to "move" the disk-drive to the new computer.

Why does my macbook keep ejecting CDs and DVDs out whether they are blank, burnt, or regular?


The unit is fubar and needs to be replaced since repair is not cost effective.. You might open up unit to see if there is any debris in the path of the tray that could be interfering in its operation. If all is ok,time to go shopping.

CDs get stuck in the slot of my mac mini---3 years old.


Ok, let's go through the options in case you have missed one. Command E, Open Finder and click eject button next too it's name, dragging the item to trash, press F12, or hitting eject on the keyboard. If none of those work make sure the drive is not just busy. Sometimes you have to wait a few seconds even after stopping the application. You can use Disk Utility in Applications/Utilities to eject a CD. Open Terminal and type drutil tray eject If that fails, in Terminal type drutil list and then look at the list and find the drive. Tyoe drutil tray eject 1 The 1 should be replace with whatever drive # you found in the list.

Wont eject what should i do


Hi! My reply is a bit late, but if you still have the same problem this may help.

You can force your DVD rom to eject a disc by poking a paper clip into the small hole near the eject button. Insert a paperclip into the hole for a few seconds (perhaps 10 to 30 sec). You may need to repeat the process several times until it ejects the disc. In case you are wondering where is this little hole - it's on the left side of the eject button.

Good luck and have a nice day!
