I have a early 2009 Mac Pro, and it won't read an MP3 disk. I don't seem to be able to get any information from the User's manual. Is there a software fix for this?

How does it "not work"? What exactly happens?

Where is the disk from?

Does it work in a different PC/Mac?

Do other disks work fine?

MP3 disks are usually just ordinary CDs with a bunch of mp3s on them. They should show up in the Finder, and iTunes should open and offer to play them.

It's an audio book disk from Brilliance audio, formatted in AudioBook format.

I don't have anther PC/Mac to check it.

All other disks work fine.

When I insert it, it whirs as normal, then quits. It never shows up in iTines.

When I go to eject it, it shows a number rather than a title.

Thanks

Brilliance mp3 CDs:

You can play an MP3-CD in these devices:

- Any CD player marked "MP3-enabled", also known as an "MP3-CD player"
- Most DVD and BluRay DVD players
- Computer CD drives
- In-dash car audio systems with MP3-CD players
- Xbox 360, Sony Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii

Hmm, maybe you can try activating it using Disk Utility...
Think a new age is coming.
