    So my iMac G3/333 won't read CD-Rs. Is there any way to make a CD-ROM? It'll read ROMs perfectly, but struggles on home-made CD-Rs (doesn't matter what brand).

    I also read that the reason why the tray-loading iMacs won't read CD-Rs is because the laser is too sensitive and there's a way to make it less sensitive by turning some screw on the CD drive???

    No, there's no practical way for you to make a "CD-ROM". CD-Rs are burned, where as regular commercial CDs are pressed. The usual minimum limit on orders for manufacturing of pressed CDs is around 1000 pieces.

    Nope. These are read only discs. Sorry.

    ROM= read only memory
