• With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

Hey fellow iBookers

Does your slot loading CD-Rom catch the CD right away on insert? How far do you have to insert before it takes it in. I have to push it almost all the way in before it catches. IT has been suggested that this may be faulty.

Comments?

Thanks,
Stu

I need to push it in until maybe 1" is left sticking out... Sounds pretty much the same as what you are experiencing.. Is this not the case with the G4 PowerBooks and G5 iMacs?

Yes, on my PB I need to push the CD in until there's only about an inch left, before the computer will pull it the rest of the way.

There's nothing unusual about having to push it in until around 1" is sticking out. That's the way it is on my PB 15" and my iBook 12".

Thank you much.

I didn't have a control machine myself, and I hate having doubt in my mind. This was my first slot loader so wanted some extra opinions.

Glad things are normal.

Cheers,
Stu
