    Updated my late 2007 iMac to 10.6.2 and after that every time I pop in a DVD or CD into the optical drive it spins up and then I get a dialog box that tells me that I have put in an empty disc and the question what I want to do. Can't read them in itunes or DVD player (or any other program). Is it just coincidence that this happened just when I updated or have anyone else experienced problems? The drive is an OPTIARC DVD RW AD-5630A

    I have the same problem. The drive reads everything, but I can't burn a CD or DVD anymore. Sometimes it spins up and then reports bad media. i have changed to several different brands of CD's and DVD's to no avail. No help from Apple.
