    Question CD/DVD keeps ejecting

    Hello Ubuntu users,

    I have Ubuntu 12.10 running on a iMac. When I load a CD or DVD it is ejected immediately. Does anyone know hoe I can try to solve this issue?

    Sounds like the drive can't read your CD/DVD.
    First make sure you are loading the discs properly,
    Then make sure the disc works somewhere else (in another computer).
    It may be your drive is defective or unsupported.

    Is this a new behaviour or was that drive working properly under Ubuntu 12.10 before?

    What model Mac and what Ubuntu version are you running...?

    Similar behaviour to yours was noted on some PPC Macs running 10.04 and there was a fix for it.
