    the medium error is

    burn sense: 3/0c/00 medium error, write error
    burn error: 0x8002006e the burn failed because of a medium write error

    what does this mean?

    Hi:

    How about giving us a description (model, make) of the replacement superdrive you purchased? That error can mean bad media, or, your drive does not write to DVDs.

    Regards.

    Did you get the base Macbook? If so, then the drive in that model does not burn DVDs

    hi ok the drive that i'm using for my macbook is HL-DT-ST DVDRW GWA4080M
    im guessing the dvd rw means dvd burning capable. but yea. what do you mean by my media? as in the cd is bad? because the cd's are brand new. if you're talking about the actual thing im trying to burn than ... iono
