Since Macs are not compatible with 3' cd's the only way it could work is if you had an external cd drive. You can even get them cheap! Here is a link to one on a website. I never used this website to purchase anything but its just to show you what you might consider looking for!

Try viewing the files on a PC and copying them onto a USB memory drive and taking it across to your MAC to install.

Why does cd rom not conned to my macbook?


I'm not sure about this, because I have an internal CD/DVD in my macbook. But this can be a driver issue. Do you have an Apple CD drive, or an universal USB CD drive? The last one could be very tricky, because the computer needs special drivers, so it can recognise the external drive.

> my DVD ROM does not function ...

Well, that prevents you from reinstalling from the Operating System DVD. Replace it.

Or, can you find a friend with a similar MacBook?
If so, remove the disk-drive from that computer,
connect your disk-drive,
and use the DVD-reader on that system to reinstall onto your disk-drive.

Pull the disk-drive out, and reconnect it to your MacBook.

Hi, I m a new user of apple mac book, I m trying to insert a disk in my dvd rom but still i am not able to open my dvd player. Can u help me that how will be open the dvd rom in apple mac book? means any...


Hi,
I would please like to tell you there is no button in MACBOOK to eject a tray as there is no tray.
You simply see a line on the right hand side of your laptop where you can insert a disc, u need to insert a disc into that part and when you insert it you will show you an icon on your desktop showing you the cd contents.
When you want to eject it keep in mind u need to click on the icon on your desktop and press the eject button or u can also use the keyboard and press the eject button, which will bring the disc out automatically.
Please do not worry try it, I'am sure it will work for you.
If there would be any problem and you need any help please do not hesitate to ask.
I'am also giving you a link to see the video of how to insert and eject the cd, please note this is the old model of the macbook, the only difference is that the drive is now located in the right hand side of the laptop, dont worry take a look.

hold the eject button on your keyboard (upper right corner), while shutting down your mac.

If that doesnt work, hold the mouse button down while shutting down your mac.

Can no longer burn cds on MacBook Pro (Model A1226)


Get a cheapy drive cleaner/laser cleaner. Looks like a normal CD/DVD, but has a brush on one side. Should be able to pick it up from an electronics store/supermarket. Pop it in, watch it go, then try again afterwards. I've detailed this further in a blog posting at <a href="http://www.garysmith.org.uk/blog/index.php/blog/show/Matshita-DVD-R-UJ-857E-problems---dirty-laser.html">http://www.garysmith.org.uk/blog/index.php/blog/show/Matshita-DVD-R-UJ-857E-problems---dirty-laser.html</a> - there's a few comments on there about it, pretty much all of them saying that it's worked for them. I guess with it being a slot loader it's perhaps a little more open to getting dust inside. Hope that helps.

Thanks,

CD/DVD optical drive malfunctioning. Invariable performance with reading and ripping CDs. Cannot read DVDs.


upgrade your CD/DVD firmware from MAC website and install it.
if it does same even upgrading driver then most could be problem in optical lens so better taking back in the same place where you bought it from if its still under warranty.

or if its out of warranty then you need to take to Tech so they can fix it for you.

please post back if anything changes and rate all answers.

Dvd rom problems with my macbook


Does the computer immediately return the discs after they're inserted or do you have to manually eject them? If it's trying to read the discs then there could be a problem with the type of disc. However if it just ejects the disc immediately, there could be a recognition problem. So, if your computer doesn't recognize that a disc is in the drive, you can check several things. 1. Check to see that the computer actually reads DVDs. To do this, open the System Profiler in the Utilities folder. Click on ATA/Devices and Volumes/Disc Burning. Those are three different options but each will tell you if the drive actually does run DVDs. If it shows DVDRW or DVD, but if it only shows CD or CD-RW, then it won't play a DVD. 2. If it shows that it accepts DVDs through the System Profiler, then you'll need to check to see if the actual drive is attached. You can open your computer through the battery with a screw driver. Once open, you'll need to check the connecting cable to the drive. If it's attached properly/securely, you may need to take it to a technician. The drive me be malfunctioning and need professional repair.
