G5 CD - Rom Issues
- Member Since
- Feb 05, 2011
I have a G5 2.3 dual \ 6 gb ram \ 2 TB HD \ Tiger 10.4.3. and it seems the more i use the CD-RW to listen to music or record my CD-RW starts to act strange. Sometimes when I hit the eject button on the keyboard it opens and sometimes it dosent. Other times I hit the eject key and it opens real quicky and closes before I can get the CD out, then when i press the eject key again, then it opens and stays open long enough to get the CD out.
I swapped out the drive twice with other CD-RW drives that came out of other G5's and they all do the same thing. Whats up with that ???!!!

If you really want to resolve this...purchasing a brand new CD/DVD drive is probably the best solution. For just $32.99 from these guys:
LG GH22LP21 Internal DVD/CD 'Super-MultiDrive' DVD... in stock at OWC
...you would be good to go...and this drive would probably be an upgrade as well.
