Having problems with your Apple iMac 24 inch 2.4GHz/ 1x1GB/ 320GB/ SuperDrive (MA878X/A) Server ?

Hello. Having previously successfully burnt a collection of photos to DVD+RW on my Snow Leopard system, the next burn on an identical disc failed at the Verify stage, when it hung up. I had to cancel the burn. Following that it proved impossible to eject the disc. I tried everything - the eject button, command+eject, command+f12, both after Sleeping the computer, restart holding down C, everything I could think of. I ran Techtools which showed all the tests passed. Now the computer doesn't


Answers :

I have a couple things that might work. My expertise is on a PC, but it should be the same with a mac.\012

First thing to try is a manual eject of the drive. Use a paperclip and unfold it. You should see a little hole just big enough to push this paper clip into. That manually ejects the drive tray.

The second thing to do is unplug the drive from the cable inside the computer. 

one of these two solutions should work. The reason this error occurs is the drive gets jammed and thus shuts down internally. By manually ejecting the drive or unplugging it, you are essentially rebooting the drive itself instead of rebooting the whole computer. Give this a try and let me know how it works.
