    If not, or even if it does, I'd suggest a good cleaning with a cleaning disk and compressed cleaning gas may fix the problem. Not a big expense to try and readily available.

    Also, your Optical drive says "(Generic Drive Support)" which can be an indication that it was a replacement at some point, but that shouldn't affect its performance in any way at all.

    It may be ejecting the disk right away because it can't read the code properly, but it must be doing so to provide the write speed etc. of the inserted disk you posted.

    thank you so much, Patrick.

    Yea…!!! clap.gif

    Glad to hear that it worked, and actually, there's no real magic involved.


    BTW: Did you not use a proper disk cleaner??

    Specs:
    PPC Mini, 10.4.11. Intel Mini, 10.6.8. MacBook Pro, 10.10.5. iPhone 3GS.
    Remember guys, just because it's a mid 2012 MBP, doesn't necessarily mean it's 5 years old. That model was on sale upto October of last year. Mine is just over 2 years old.

    Good point. We should probably ask an OP when he/she purchased their Mid 2012 MBP rather than assuming it's 5 years old.

    I really often question the statements offered so often in these forums that a 5 year old Mac is really old and beyond it's prime and should be replaced.

    I really don't and cannot agree, especially when the users circumstances are not known and is often not fair to the poster.

    Or are there just a lot of Apple sales or stock supporters involved and providing such advice…???

    I understand where you're coming from Patrick. However, the Mid 2012 standard MacBook Pro (not the retina model) is different in that it was being sold up until late 2016. Some of them purchased during that time are still covered under Apple Care if it was added on along with the original purchase.

    I agree though that generally a Mac purchased in 2012 is close to being no longer supported as far as Apple is concerned.
