CD/DVD drive stops reading disks, or fails to mount with 10.5.6
I install and run 10.5.6 with the internal CD/CVD drive in my Acer Aspire 3000MLi, AMD SSE2 but sooner or later it stops reading disks, or fails to mount the CD/DVD drive!
When this happens the drive is no longer found by Disk Utility and two options are also missing from the CD & DVD control panel in System Preferences as shown below (there should be five)
my drive (which works perfectly in WinXP) is as follows:
This problem is driving me nuts as everything else works fine, wireless, usb, PCMCI modem, sound.
Any help appreciated, I've searched everywhere for a solution to this problem?
