    Problem with iMac optical drive
    My iMac keeps spitting out discs. It will take some and then it will spits others out. I've tried just about everything. Anyone have any solutions? I was able to install Printshop and it took that disc. I burned some audio cd's and dvd's and it won't read them, just spits them out.

    I had the same exact problem over the span of four months; I tried everything. Finally, I just took it into my local Authorized Apple repair store to replace in the optical drive and never has given me problems since.
