Prevent CD and DVD disks from becoming stuck
Authored by: jdb8167 on Dec 14, '05 09:29:20AM

It happens on my mini with an upgraded PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-K05. The latest System Profiler shows this drive as "Apple Shipped/Supported" but if Apple put in special ROMs for their shipped version (which they tend to do), mine obviously doesn't have it.

The problem isn't horrible. The drive sleeps and it can take a couple of minutes for the software to time out during which time the CPU is at 100%. Once the timeout happens I can eject this blank DVD-R/CD-R and everything works. But this hint could save me a lot of trouble. So thanks. I will be trying it out soon.
