Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

When I insert a CD-R (TDK 52x) into my iMac it tells me that it (The CD) is locked and ejects it.....is this the wrong CD-R for an old iMac (OS9.2.1)? Thank you for the help.


Answers :

I can't say for certain with a MAC but when I have come across this problem on a Windows machine a firmware update will often solve the problem.
\015\012I doubt very much if there is a different firmware for MAC or Windows as all the firmware does is report what device and what characteristics the device has that it is installed on.
\015\012You don't seem to see it when buying CD's but I know that when you buy DVD/R's these days they include information about checking the firmware and the site where you can find information about your optical drive in order to make sure it is upto date.
\015\012
\015\012One of the advantages of a firmware update is the fact that it allows your optical device to recognize more brands of media disks.
\015\012The reason I use Liteon optical drives in my own machines and all the builds I do is reliability and the fact I have yet to find a media disk they don't recognize.
Hello,

\015\012You may follow the discussion thread at the link below. That fixed the problem with the Mac not reading a blank CD.
