Question about Apple PowerBook G4 Mac Notebook
My slot-load SuperDrive doesn't seem to want to accept CD-ROMs or DVDs. It's done that with dirty or damaged CDs but now with any I try to load - seems to try to read, then ejects disk.
Kim, I'm glad you asked this. I have had problems with my superdrive as well. What I found out through persistent research is this: The new Superdrives can take CD+R and DVD+R. (I am assuming you are asking about recording? However, the older models of Superdrives ---usually found in Powerbook G4s, can take CD-R and DVD-R. These are different from the first ones ini that they are slower to burn, and just a few gb short of space than the +. this should help solve the problem with taking new cds and dvds for burning. The superdrive tends to just spit these right back out. If you are referring to playing them, then have you tried cleaning the dirty ones? Check the help section at www.apple.com. they have wonderful solutions. Try to put in a couple new cds or dvds to play. Open up itunes or the dvd player before you put the disks in. If you're still having trouble, make use of that warranty and go to your nearest apple store to fix it right up! Hope this helps!
