It says that it's a CD-RW drive- a CD-RW drive can't read/write DVD's, you need a DVD drive. You can pick one up for rather cheap from several online retailers - www.newegg.com www.tigerdirect.com etc.

When i open the google site i can not read all words in my ibook g3. i can see only question marks. how to solve the problem? please help me.

Hi,
The problem most likely is that you have quite an old browser, so we just need to get you a better one that can run on your operating system.
If you are on OSX, then you should try Opera from here
If you are on OS9, then you need the awesome iCab which you can download from here
Regards.

My ibbok 3g wont play dvds or youtube? help

Many iBook G3s came with optical drives for CDs only, not DVDs; and the decoding software for many of today's popular video formats runs extremely slow on all G3 processors. It's not clear that there is anything wrong with your computer other than its age. The first iBook G3 models were ten years old last February.

IBook G3 Mac Notebook..can't get online, enternal modem is idle?

Ethernet is the big phone looking connection for the network. It also has a dial up modem installed. It doesnt sound like you have a wireless card in it. You may have to buy one and have it installed to get on the net.

Hi i have a ibook g3 { i just bought it from a friend} i can i restore to a factory settings without a trouble

To restore an iBook G3 to factory settings you need the installation CDs that came with the iBook. Ask your friend to find them. Sometimes you can purchase replacement sets on eBay, but they have to be for your exact model. Please realize that the original installation CDs that came with this iBook will contain OS 9, not OS X, so I question whether you really want to restore this machine "to factory settings." What you may choose to do instead is a "clean install" from a more recent retail OS X CD or DVD.

I start My ibook g3 with Mac os x puma cd disk and it runs making lines of installing until "Panic: we are hanging here..."

Does your system meet the minimum requirements? It looks like you need 128 MB RAM and 1.5 GB hard drive space.

Failure to read USB connected storage drives

What I have seen with some computer models, is that the USB port cannot deliver enough current to run some devices.

If possible, use an external drive with its own power supply and see if it will work. Most likely it will.

Also, try a powered USB hub. I found that most of the time, a powered USB hub solved many problems with having enough power for some external USB devices.
