    I was burning a few CDs and was on the last one when my iBook started playing up. Whenever I inserted a CD it would simply say 'checking media' and then eject the disc. I tried burning the same CDs and songs on my PC and it worked fine. I have now find that it happens to all CDs that I insert. I tried to play 'Football Manager 2005' today and wwhen I put the disc in 5 seconds later it ejects it. I have not dropped or forced and of the CDs so it is a real mystery.

    Does anyone have any possible solutions to the problem or should I get on the phone to Apple Care?

    Thanks,

    I have a G4 iBook, 1Ghz, Airport, and OS X 10.3.7

    Call Apple Care Phone Support, it could be something small maybe a plastic piece from a Cd that might have broken off and is now stuck in the drive.

    Okay cheers. I''ll give them a ring tomorrow, though last time I rang them they were pretty poor, I couldn't understand what the guy was even saying! I'm going to London in a couple of days so may call into the Apple Store.

    I searched and saw that some people said that DVDs worked fine. I tried this and DVDs work fine in my drive too only CDs and CD-ROMs seem to have the problem.

    Anyone else had this problem and soleved it?
