Hi Mark,

Get in touch with Apple. You are still in warranty. They will probably advise you of an authorized service centre to take it to where it will be fixed under warranty....for free.

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Joe

Is there any way to replace super drive of apple imac by any other external optical drive


Yes. There is a tutorial here http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/iMac+Intel+21.5-Inch+EMC+2428+Optical+Drive+Replacement/5961
that will show you exactly how to access and replace it. Be SURE that you feel comfortable doing so though as you can do more harm than good if you aren't careful. Apple is notorious for tiny cables and logic board plugs that will break if not handled properly. Make sure you have the correct tools and that you have large enough suction cups to pull the screen out. If you pull on a small portion of the screen only, it will snap into pieces on you and they cost more than the drive to replace.

GOOD LUCK

CD/DVD Drive won't accept new blank CDs and they jam in the computer. I have to restart the computer (sometimes more than once) to get the machine to eject the discs.


Hi,
The problem would be the dvd rom, it won't read anymore. That's a problem with a combo DVD rom, when it being use frequently it tends to breakdown, mainly the problem is the internal parts. I have tried repairing most DVD/CD Roms, to no avail..... mostly the problem would be the parts, and it is not available in the market, and it is better to buy a new one than getting it into the manufacturer's service center, they charge excessively like your buying a new one!
If the CD is stuck inside, get a pointed metal rod, there is a small hole in the face front and push the rod into that hole untill it opens the cd tray.
Thanks for using FixYa!

My imac dvd drive reads DVDs but ejects CDs and installation disc


The optical drive has separate hardware for reading CD-disks and for reading DVD-disks.
So, "half" of the drive has failed. Replace the drive, since that will be less-expensive than an attempt at a repair.
