Most probably not a firmware issue or virus.
Usually these problems are due to a dirty lens.
But before you try a lens cleaning kit, you might try a SMC reset (if you have an Intel Mini) or a PMU reset (if you have an older G4 PPC Mini). Be sure to use the correct reset procedure for your model of Mini! Applying a PMU reset to an Intel mini can cause real problems.
The G4 Minis have two USB ports on the back; the Intels have four USB ports.
See, for example, this post for an explanation of the two reset procedures:
Thanks for The response. I tried resetting the SMC (I do have an Intel Mini)
in addition to repairing disk permissions, and using time machine to restore
No results thus far.
I don't see how it could read anything except a DVD.......but I am a newbie.
Thanks again for the response.
