View Full Version : imac keeps rejecting discs!!

Dec 26, 2008, 01:02 PM
Hi out of the blue my imac has stopped accepting any disc i try to put in. It makes a few noise before ejecting it back out after 20 seconds.

I tried veryfying the disk in disk utilities and it came up with a failure on exit:

HFs volume checked

volume needs repair

i don't know if this has anything to do it with it as i am not rly that technical.
This is the log results:

The underlying task reported failure on exit
1 HFS volume checked

Looks like a trip to the apple store is required. It also looks like you have two problems. Your hard drive needs repair.
