Brand new apple dvd drive will not accept dvd


The DVD works by just pushing it in far enough till you get resistance, then the drive pulls the DVD in by itself. If after it pulls the DVD in, it just ejects it, The DVD drive thinks you are using an incompatible disk.

You can also try resetting the SMC.
This is how to reset SMC on most modern Mac laptops:

Shutdown your MacBook Air / MacBook Pro
Connect the power adapter to your Mac
On the MacBook/Pro's keyboard, hold down the Shift+Control+Option keys and the Power button at the same time
Release all keys and the power button at the same time
Boot your Mac as usual

Here's the key sequence to hold down:

Reset the SMC of a MacBook Air or Retina MacBook Pro

Do keep in mind that by resetting the SMC you will lose power specific settings, like the time it takes to sleep a Mac and other customizations to power settings. No big deal, but if you have made many changes to your hardware behavior you will want to adjust stuff like sleep behavior again.
Reset SMC of an iMac, Mac Pro, Mac Mini

Resetting SMC is different for non-portable Macs:

Shut down your Mac
Disconnect the power cord
Press and hold the Mac's power button for 5 seconds
Release the button
Reattach the power cables and boot the Mac as usual

Reset the SMC of a MacBook or MacBook Pro's with detachable batteries

sad mac reset the smc Older MacBook laptops with a removable battery can reset SMC with the following approach:

Shutdown the MacBook/Pro and remove the battery
Disconnect the power adapter, hold the Power Key for 10 seconds
Release the power key and reconnect your battery and power adapter
Turn your Mac on
Let boot as usual

Hopefully that will clear up your problems, if not it might be worth a visit to the Apple Store or a certified repair center.

Happy New Year,
Kerry

Just got an lg ge20 not working on mac


I wish I could tell you that your Mac is compatible with the LG GE20 20X DVD Burner but unfortunately it is not.

Here are the system requirements for this burner
LG GE20 20X DVD Burner Technical Specifications

The CD included is not the only item that is not compatible with the Mac, it is also the DVD burner itself. It is only windows compatible I'm afraid.

However, I do know that the Apple.com online store, has a comparable DVD+RW burner, the
LaCie 22x d2 DVD+RW with LightScribe
which will work with your iMac.

This is a genuine incompatibility issue.

If you had an Intel iMac, there actually is a workaround process where virtual machine software, like VMWare Fusion or Parallels, could be installed, with a version of Windows XP, Vista, or 7, display as a 2nd terminal within a Mac OS X desktop.

What's makes this effective, is that the LG GE20 could work with a windows virtual machine and because software like VMWare for example, can share devices, including optical CD/DVD drives, the Mac could share that drive with the windows virtual machine.

But since you do not have an Intel iMac, unless I am reading the description of your Mac computer(Apple iMAC Mac Notebook) incorrectly, the LaCie burner information, I provided above, would be the best option for your model of iMac.

Again, if I have described your model of Mac incorrectly let me know and I will be glad to assist further.

Regards,

No problem.

Here is what you need to know:

The regional code for the US is (1).
You can change your DVD Region code up to 5 times on your Mac.

Review the information on DVD Regional codes via this Apple Support link to change the region code:

Let me know if this Apple data helps!

Dirty DVD Drive?


You can clean your DVD Drive by inserting the Disk Cleaner its either dry or liquid cleaner. If you don't have a disk cleaner just purchase it in the store near in your neighborhood. In that way you can clean the DVD Drive Laser eye and make it possible to read another disk next time you used. Usually it takes 15 minutes the standard cleaning time if you are cleaning the DVD Drive to ensure that it is properly cleaned. Also if it doesn't work then probably you can find a technician and let it check to the technician. I hoe that the laser eye of your DVD Drive is not damage due to some disk you inserted earlier.

Hope this recommendation helps solved your problem.
If you need more assistance just reply to this post. thanks

Mac dvd drive regency code locked


This is not a feature of the Mac - this is a feature of DVD-ROM drives and is part of the DVD standard.

DVD-ROM drives, once changed 5 times, can NOT be changed.

The only solution would be to purchase an external DVD drive, and set IT to region 2, and leave your internal one set to region 1.

The region settings are legal issues with the DVD standard - the 5-time limit is permanent, hardcoded, and unchangeable.
