    Hi Guys, seem to be having a weird problem. My 2010 mini is self ejecting blank DVD's that I insert into it. It spins for a few seconds then just pops out! I have tried two brands and no luck. It seems fine with blank CD's though! Any ideas?

    Additional info: I have followed the guide for resetting the PRAM and the NVRAM, with no change to the situation.

    It will spit out disks that it cant read. So that would most likely be the problem.

    I can understand that being a possibility, but why 2 different brands of blank DVDs and having no problems with black cdr's?

    I remember that my MBP was spitting out blank dvds when I wanted to burn something onto them.

    That is generally why you put blank DVD's into the computer! lol, did you happen to come across a resolution?

    For reasons best known and kept to itself, it's now working and burning as I type! No idea how it's now working, just put the DVD in again and it worked.
