My iMac isn't accepting any discs, DVDs, CDs, CD-Roms, nothing. Normally I push it in about half way and it ***** it in, but now, even when I push it in further, it doesn't accept it. I've tried to see if there is a disc in there I may have forgotten, but there's nothing on the computer that suggests that there is and I've tried pushing the eject button on my keyboard and nothing happens. I'm not sure what to do!!


iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.1)

    Try Restarting your Mac and then see if it will accept a Disc...

    Yeah, I tried that, shutting down for a while and starting back up. Starting it back up while holding the "option" key. Nothing's worked so far. :-(  Thanks tho.

    After shutting down the iMac, you should start it while holding the left mouse button: any thing in the superdrive will be ejected, if nothing comes out at least it did the movements. Probably then it will accept a disc. Do NOT use force!! never use force.

    1.          Go into Spotlight from the top of your iMac on the menue bar.

    2.          And search for "CDs & DVDs" (It's also in the System Preferences)

    Click on it and a small CDs & DVDs window will pop up with options of what happens when you insert a disk into the drive

    3.          By then, try inserting a disk in (while that window is open. This kinda wakes up your drive to accept the disk). It should accept it.

    4. If nothing happens, then manually open the program that should be opening when you insert the disk or go to Finder (Eg. if it's an audio disk, then open iTunes)

    5.          If opening the program still does not activate the drive to start spinning the disk, then close the programs and windows you opened, and repeat step 1-4 and the disk should be spinning and automatically opening the proper program.

     

     

    Hope that helps!
