    Superdrive ejecting discs
    Hi,

    I'm a new Mac user (abt 6 months) and needless to say, am loving the experience.

    Recently I started facing a problem where my superdrive kept ejecting the dvds I inserted. These are original english movie dvds i'm talking about. Is there any chance this could be related to the region code, cause I have already changed it three times. If so, what is the best solution? I miss not being able to play my movies on my 24"

    Bump.

    I'm having the same issue. Original, genuine dvd's being rejected.

    There must be a simple explanation.

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB flash memory, 3.3GHz, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra beta.
    Usually three changes, like three strikes, and you're out. Have a look at this utility to see if it helps:-

    Specs:
    21" iMac * 2.8 Ghz Intel Core i7 * 16GB 1333 Mhz DDR3 * 1TB HD *AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB
    I've been having this problem increasingly lately. There are just some discs that the superdrive won't read. Others are read with no problem. Some drives have trouble reading and/or writing to multicolored blank CD's. I think in my case it's that the drive is getting old. You might just have a touchy or even malfunctioning drive.

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    Get a CD/DVD disc cleaner and give it a try.

    On the cheap, I have also used (after shutting down, disconnecting power, removing the battery and waiting for a minute after, before reconnecting power) a can of air and 2-3 quick bursts in the slot in different directions.

    If it's not a problem of the lens getting dusty and unable to read the discs, then your drive could be dead.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
