View Full Version : G4 400 mghz DVD drive doesn't read DVD-Rs

My G4 400 mghz DVD drive (which i can watch movies on just fine) at home doesn't read DVD-Rs which I burn at work to backup my stuff. But we have a beige G3 at work, which reads the DVD-R's just fine. Do I need a update for my drive or what. Very confused and fustrated.

Some drives can not read DVD-R disks. Did Apple sell your computer with the SuperDrive? Since it is a G4 400, I'm not sure they had DVD burning drives (or at least they weren't popular), so Apple might not have included readability for it.

It doesn't have a DVD burner but it reads movie DVDs just fine. What I don't understand is that at work we have an older beige G3 that has a DVD Player and reads DVD-R just fine. My CD/DVD drive won't even recognize the DVD-R
