    Started having trouble with the 24 in IMAC with Mountain Lion, it will not play audio cd. It will play DVD and read Operating System discs. I did a complete ML reinstall and nothing works..talked to Apple and they said maybe optical drive failure..:mad:

    any suggestions?


    Thanks!

    i also had this on my old 2010 mac with snow leaopard osx. it read and burnt dvds. but would spit out every blank cd-r/rw or music cds i would put in it. very weird. i think it happened when i updated to snow leopard or when i burnt a rewriteable cd-rom. im not sure which was the culprit. but i was thinking the rewritable cd that killed the drive somehow...i even tried various brand of blank cds, from sony,verbatim,tdk, etc etc. and none worked. i concluded it was a od failure..

    Buy a 30 dollar external. You'll never use the internal again.
