    Mac Disc Drive Fail
    The disc canít be burned because because communication between the computer and the disc drive failed (error code 0x80020022).

    I just got this error and my DVD just ejected. I've been having problems with my disc drive lately, does this mean its time to install a new disc drive?

    Late 2013 27" iMac, iPad 3, iPhone 6s+, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, El Capitan
    Try cleaning it first with canned air. Blow inside the drive a few times with the compressed air, perhaps the lens is just dirty. If that doesn't work, you may be looking at replacing the drive. You didn't tell us which model Mac you have, however, replacement drives are available from several on line resellers.

    i have an iMac6,1. Im looking at different options and im thinking about external drive? would that be a good idea, specifically this one:
    OWC Value Line USB2.0/1.1 22X Super-MultiD... (VLU2SD22XLS) at OWC
    instead of replacing it just get that, is that a good idea?

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB Flash Storage, 3.3Ghz, 16GB memory, OS X.11.5.
    Pioneer seem about the best and you will find a Firewire drive to be much faster.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
