I have been able to burn DVD's up until last night.

When in LiquidCD, when I press 'burn'...the popup window says 'finishing burn' and then 'burn failed, an internal error has occured'.

Same thing with the application 'Burn'

I also try to go into Windows, and use ImgBurn, this causes Windows to completely freeze up and forces me to press the power button.

Even though I have 2 optical drives, one internal and one external...it doesn't matter, BOTH drives do the same thing, which leads me to believe it's not a problem with any of the optical drives (it's highly unlikely that both drives would fail to burn at the exact same time)

I've tried resetting the VRAM, PRAM, SMC, repairing permissions on the Mac hard drive. I've tried using a different USB port for my external optical drive - and I am not using a hub.

I *really* do not want to drive to my 'local' Apple store..as it's a 40 minute drive one way.

Any other suggestions?

First, I'm not accusing you of anything so take the next paragraph in stride....

What exactly are you trying to burn? It sounds like you may be trying to burn copy protected material? The result you received will occur when trying to burn something that's copy protected. The fact that both drives and two operating systems are giving you the same error sort of points to that.

If it's not that, it could be the disks themselves that are the problem. Try another brand of disk.

Nope, I'm burning random files, nothing with copy protection.

I'm using Verbatim. I have DVD-R, DVD+RDL, and BD-R. All Verbatim. So it should be good, since I burned a disc yesterday with no problems..

Update.

Do I feel dumb. All it was, was incorrect file names.

Thanks for posting back. Sometimes the simplest of things are what cause the biggest headaches. Have fun.
