I have a 2.1 GHz G5 iMac running 10.4.8 with everything up to date. The Superdrive worked flawlessly for 8 or 9 months, and then proceeded to gradually lose its ability to recognize blank DVD-R's that I insert. At first the brand I was using failed (Verbatim) but Fuji discs still worked fine. Now Fuji discs no longer work. Has anyone experienced this and figured out a fix?
The blank disc is inserted, begins to spin up, makes a few read sounds, and then is ejected. This is true using the Finder, iDVD, Toast, and Popcorn.
P.S. I am a newbie, having stumbled upon DaniWeb while searching for a solution to this issue. Thanks for what appears to be a great forum.
