Installation Cause Problems with CD Drive

Post by ivan » Wed Sep 26, 2007 11:34 am

Hello,

I am new to Max. After installing, my cd drive no longer works. I stick in a cd, it spins up and has normal sounds, but then either spits it out, or just stop spinning and sits - it does not show up as a drive, and only ejects if I reboot (freezes any attempt of using disk manager or other programs that would try to access cd).

It could just be coincidental. Anyone else had a problem like this and hopefully a fix?

Thanks,
Ivan

After a little more googling, looks like it is probably just coincidental and that it is a common problem with the mac drives - no error messages, just starts spitting out cds. From what I have found so far, replacing the drive sounds to be the only solution.

It is hard getting past links to how to force eject a cd to get to any useful information.
