Reading MP3 disks
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

Hmm, maybe you can try activating it using Disk Utility...
