I did PRAM several times. Now works. On an old 3,1 Macbook Pro too.

I can't find this preference file in Mountain Lion. Anyone know if it is renamed?

Hold down the option key while selecting Finder "Go To Folder" menu command. Select the library in your user folder and go to the Preferences folder.

This Terminal command will do the same thing, but make the user library viable all the time until 10.8.3 is released, after which you'll probably need to run it again:

Please fix this. It seems irresponsible not to own up to such a wide-spread SNAFU.
That's all I want for Christmas... a Superdive that works....

My late 2008 Macbook Pro will mount DVD's but not CD's. I am very mad and if this is Apple's way of "discontinuing" audio CD's, shame on you!

I run an older iMac(ealry 2009) with 4GB Ram and when I upgrded to Mountain LIon theSuperdrive works OK but when I get done using it fo burning I cannopt eject the CD/DVD unless I forec eject it. When I was on LIon the superderive would not read any CDs/DVFs and they ogten became stuck in the drive. That probelm has gone away since I upgraded to ML but now this new problem arose. I've PRAMws several times to no avail. Is a clean instyall next?

Have you already achieved a consensus how to solve this problem?
My macmini (2010) superdrive has been kaputt since September due to the mountain lion upgrade...

Just giving a little update here. I was contacted by Apple last month and they acknowledged there was a software issue with the ML upgrade that was causing the drives to stop working. They sent me a utility to run on my system that gathered data about the problem and I send them back a nice fat data file. They said they were working on a fix and it would show up in one of the next updates. Fingers crossed for a Oct 2013 fix

I was also contacted and ran a utility for them. They are aware of the issue.

After I installed ML on my 2009 Mac Mini last year, I have patched a lot of things Not only from Apple but also some suggestions of experts from this forum. Some of them made the superdrive temporarily work but now it finally does not work; especially, copying CDs and DVDs.
