All of a sudden the Superdrive won't mount. It isn't seen on the desktop or in iTunes. Won't play any type of CD, and requires my password to eject out of iTunes.<br>I do have a new motherboard and know it must be some sort of software issue. I have done the fsck and macjanitor. I have ordered Disk Warrior and it will be in next week. I just don't want to compound the problem. This is what happens when I try to even update the superdrive.<br>Any suggestions? Thanks! Now, the iPod is not mounting either! This is exactly the same problem as before and they replaced the motherboard.<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by sross on 08/29/03 06:54 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
Ws about to respond, Sherman, but saw over at MC that you solved it already. Funny thing that drjohn's problems were connected to bad RAM too. I never paid much attention to TTP's hardware testing suite, but I guess the RAM test is worth doing!<br><br> Alas, poor Yorick. -- Hamlet

My ram test was good old "yank and poke." When I ran the hardware test disk, it didn't show any issues. I pulled the ram sticks out one by one and, sure enough, it was my "upgrade" stick from the original purchase.<br>I just ordered two ram sticks from Crucial, and hopefully, that will be the end of the big mystery. What I find interesting, is that the Apple store tech folks couldn't find it and went so far as to replace the logic board. (Not that I'm complaining )<br>My big concern is that it may be the slots and the logicboard is affected when the ram is put in. Oh well, we'll see about that another time.<br>It sure was a perplexing situation. Thanks for the encouragement.<br><br>
Really? Uh, not to sound too stupid or anything, but do you mean the little bitty button under the bigger button on the front?<br>I closed it up without doing anything. What am I supposed to do? (when the new ram comes in)<br><br>
Sherman, Steve was just playing with you. You had said you were going to hit the reset button after everytime you put a ram stick in....<br><br>here, let me knock Steve about the head for you <br><br>My stuff for sale.
