My Imac has stoped reading DVDs I took it into Apple who said it was working fine.


The problem seems to be only affecting some DVDs I know its not the disc as it works on other macs.


It will read The sims 3 Supernatural but not the base game I am running the latest IOS and have resently Re-installed the Mac as a new device but still have the same problem.


i have found lots of people with the same problem but no solutions





iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Have you tried cleaning the superdrive?


    Are those DVDs that 'don't work' clean and scratch-free?
