Dvd wont stay in ,keeps ejecting


Basically the read-write head is out of alignment. These drift out with use. Unfortunetly they are not economical to repair these days and just need to be replaced.
Usually you find a commercial dvd might work for a while but eventually that on't but a cd will. If you have any commercial cd's pop one inand see. The dvd requires much more accuracy but the cd is quite coarse so it works longer. Eventually it too will stop working.
At this point you have two choices, get the dvd drive replaced with a apple configurred drive or just use a external dvd or even blueray external usb drive. Those will be much cheaper and won't require any downtime or tech fees.

August 2005, I purchased this powermac g5. There has been a steady deterioration in the DVD player. Presently, no rented DVDs play. SONY DVD RW DW-Q28A: Firmware Revision: KAS7 Interconnect: ATAPI Burn...


OK. The movie industry strikes again! Your RENTED DVDs are the key.Hollywood made some adjustments to prevent the copying of the movies. So they put software to detect the kind of drives in which the movies are inserted. DVD/RW are capable of copying a movie, so they are disqualified as playing devices. Have it be a normal DVD player you won't be facing any troubles.
