[qanda]This thread is about the Optiarc AD-7630A. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi
I am trying to replace my failed Panasonic SuperDrive in my iMac G5 with an AD-7633. The drive works Ok at first (reads, writes, plays DVD etc) , but if I watch a DVD or listen to a CD or just leave a CD in for a while, I can not eject the disk. The disk disappears from the desktop but it does not come out, and the computer hangs.
I have already tried to change the master/slave /reverse settings of the drive, and tried both 10.4 and 10.5 but it doesn’t make any difference.
So my question is: Has anybody installed this drive or a AD-7630 in a Mac, and with what firmware?
I also have a Intel iMac with a failing Pioneer drive which will need a replacement too in a couple of weeks…
Thanks in advance.
