    I'm with you Jimmy T. I've had a LOT of probelems since "upgrading" to ML and the superdrive failure is one  of the worst.  Keep a chin up, maube Apple will come though sooneer or later ')

    Had same problem. Under hardware, the system said I didn't have a burner.   Called tech support.  They waived fee.  I was told to Shutdown my imac, unplug it from the back of the computer.  Wait 15 seconds. Plug it back in.  Wait 5 more seconds. Restart holding down the mouse (left side).  Ejected my disc on start up.  Everything works again.

    Thanks wendy68.  I did that a while back and so far the Superdrive seems to be working as expected.  It also solved the problem of everytime I started up the dock could not funtiion normally, (wouild not whoe the titles when I waved the mouse over the apps and would no magnify or present the arrow to change things in the dock).  I did purchse an external Superdrive and it works just finem so now it apperas I have two SDs The process cured almost all of the woes I had with ML.  I did purchse a new iPhoto and that solved the problems I had wioth the old version.  I still have to restart twice some times to make things work likke they should so any ideas about that would be appreciated.

    Hi guys, did any of you made the update to OSX 10.8.3?


    Any changes for the ones that still have the problem?


    I removed my superdrive from the desktop and I'm wayting for a new one, but I would like to know if any of you was luky with this update.


    Thank you.

    Hi mjbentoc,  I upgraded tp 10.8.3 and so far so good.  My superdrive works ok except it will not recogonisze a blank DVD.  Pre recoreded ones work fine now and so do CDs,  if any of that helps.

    well my drive works with reg cd's also. its been a while since i've tried a blank disc but we'll see soon enough i guess

  • charlesfromcorrales Level 1 (0 points)

    Hey DannyBoyVA,


    Seems like my 'puter is faster since the update but maybe it's just my imagination.  My superdrive shows blank cds and burns them ok.  Don't have any blank DVDs to try right now anyway

    Not working... Takes a long time to fix this one...

    I have a similar problem: The superdrive just wouldnt accept and DVD od CD ROMS. I simply cannot get them into the drive - spits them out immediately. Anyone got the same problen? Or does your drive eject them after some time only?

  • JimmyTreviño Level 1 (0 points)

    Mine now reads virgin CD´S and burn them, but will not read software cd´s, music cds, and movies dvds, i´m so dissapointed of MAC software, plz do not became like windows.

    I have a similiar issue.  I hoped that 10.8.3 would be the answer but no luck.  I thought I just had a bad superdrive but my external drive now won't burn discs either.  The drive spins up for a second then sits still for about fifteen minutes.  I eventually get an 0x80020020 error. 


    My superdrive immedialy spits out blank discs without recognizing them. 


    I've tried several different brands of media so I'm pretty confident that isn't the issue.  Both my external and superdrive read data discs and play movies so it seems to be purely a burning issue.  Really frustrating. 

  • mjbentoc Level 1 (0 points)

    Yes, with mine is the same. Doesn't matter the kind of media I insert, it spits the disc a few seconds after.


    I removed my drive and bought another one. I will only know if the problem is solved in 2 weeks. I'll reply then.

  • charlesfromcorrales Level 1 (0 points)

    I guess my superdrive didn't change either after installing 10.8.3.  The only things it does't do is write DVDs, sometimes it just spits DVDs out.  Cds work ok, both reading and writing but no lick with DVDs unless they are prerecoded ones.  I too thought the superdrive was faliling and purchsased an external superdrive but that does the same thing so I guess it has something to do with the OS.  I have SL on an external drive and I am thinking about trying that to see if the superderive still works ok.  Will let you know when and if I do that..  All else seems to be a bit fastyer with the new upgrade but I cannot be sure as I have not kept the activity monitor on long enoug to find out.
