Help:10.2.8 can't see internal CD

in Mac Software edited January 2014

I've noticed that my internal CD drive has stopped

reading/recognizing CD disks when they are put in the

internal drive. If I put a disk in, nothing shows.

The drive does open and close as usual when I push the

manual control on it.

I am running MacOSX 10.2.8. I am running on a 400mz

G4 of the Yikes (PCI) model with 728 mg RAM.

When I restart in OS 9.2 (which is also on my hard

disk) the internal CD works fine, and reads disks


So this is not a hardware fault, as far as I know.

I have already run Norton Systemworks 3 and Disk

Utility, and the problem remains.

My question is: Does anyone have any suggestion as to

1. Can you think of a way figuring this out and fixing


2. If that doesn't work, what else should I do?

(please don't tell me do a clean reinstall of OX10.2

except as a last resort).
