Mac Monterey can't read CD at all?

Post by bluedogz »

Running MacBook Air M1, 8GB, 512GB drive, OS Monterey 12.5.

Bought a legacy CD off Ebay, appears clean and undamaged.

Using known-good external CD drive, received "The disk you inserted is not readable by this computer" error. Computer can't see it at all.

Swapped CD drives: nope
Zapped Mac PRAM: No joy
Reset Mac SMC: nope
Installed Myth on GFs computer: no error

Help? I'm in the weeds.

Can you install/run hfsutils as described here: http://tain.totalcodex.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7485

Note the underscore issue.
