    Open the Finder.


    From the Finder menu bar click Finder > Preferences then select the General tab.


    Select:  CDs, DVDs, and iPods


    Try inserting a disc.

    Another help source (if you haven't already done so).


    Go to your OS Help Menu.  In the search field type dvd or cd

    Click on all the troubleshooting topics & Support Articles that pertain to  your issue.



    You can also do the same in Disk Utility.  Open same up.

    At the bottom left of the window, click on the purple button w/the "?" in the middle.

    This will bring up the Help Menu.






    Try a different brand.  Top forum favorites
