    Medium errors
    Awhile back i was having issues with my internal burner where it gives me medium errors with every type of media I try to burn to a CD or DVD, whether it's a movie, data, or music disc, all give me medium errors in Toast, or just burn errors in iTunes and disk utility. So i have an external burner plugged in, and now that's giving me the same errors as well. Could this be a fault with the operating system, or is every burner i plug in just bad? Oh, and i also have tried different brands of media too, such as Memorex, staples, sony, they all give the same error.

    Have you tried a different speed some things don't play well above 8x.

    Yes, I have tried auto, the slowest which i believe was 1 or 2x, and i have tried the max speed, all return the same error. If i actually select OK for each error, to closes the disc and ends up being useless. So I have to force quit any application for it not to do so.
