Ti Powerbook won't play CD's or load CDROM - only DVD works
I've been searching
around to see if there is a patch to repair the problem I have with my DVDROM
drive on my Tibook and I found your correspondance. The drive is a Matsushita
SR-8717 with driver version 1.4.7 and revision number HA18. It stopped working
when I was copying one of my CD's into iTunes. The disk just stopped loading and

appearing to fail to find the start point on the disk. Same with Data CD. DVD
still plays with no problems.

Should I just
replace the drive ( I'm out of warranty)?
Is there a
diagnostics application I can use to investigate the problem further? (I can't
load my Apple hardware troubleshooter disk as the drive won't read
