    Hey guys,
    So, recently I've been having an issue with my MacBook Pro. Whenever I try to import a CD that has music and data on it, I'll put the CD in, it will spin around a few times and then just spit it out. It won't even get to the point where the CD shows up on the desktop. The weirdest part about it is that if it is just a standard music CD, it will load it right away. Same goes for game discs.

    I've done searches for this before, and I tried searching the boards, but I didn't find anything that matched what was going on with my computer. If I totally missed it, I apologize, but does anyone have any idea of what's going on?

    Also, it's only a year and a half old and I have all of the current updates.

    Nope, both of them are brand-new, right out of the package.

    What kind of CDs are they? R, RW? Mac Superdrives can be a little finicky about the discs put in, which is why I think these ODDs suck compared to 3rd party ones.

    I actually have no idea. I just bought the new Cake CD and I wanted to put it in my library.

    Try ripping it with XLD (much better than the iTunes ripper)

    I would, except the CD doesn't even show up. I put it in, it spins around a few times, and then it gets spit right back out.

    Can you try some other cd's just to rule out that it's not the superdrive?

    If it's got the copy protection ring around the edge, then your stuffed.

    ...or like I said, has the copy protection ring around the edge. It's a music CD isn't it?

    I have no idea who 'cake' are, or what type of music they do. But if they are on Warner, or Sony odds are that it has the Copy protection ring, which allows it to play in a CD player, and will point a PC at the right starting sector for the audio and data parts...

    But will throw a paddy in OS X, because all it sees is a funked up disc.
