need help wit burning dvd
 
Hi, I need help wit burning dvd's..I just got my Mac, few days ago and I was trying to burn some dvd and as soon as I put blank dvd it ejects. I don't understand why.. I have Combo drive, and in system profiler it says this: CD-Write: -R, -RW
Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, CD-Raw.. I don't understand, cause I thought if you have combo drive that you can read/write both cd's/dvd's..
Please I need some help..
Thanks

Sorry to tell you but I believe it is the Super Drive that writes CDs and DVDs. Combo drive, I believe, will read both but only write to CD.

You are correct sir!

I know, I just checked.. I wasn't sure, cause on my PC I was able to do both...
I guess this version of Mac is not supporting burning dvd's..
But thanks anyway...

The version is fine, you're just lacking the hardware.

I went to Apple store and they told me that this version does not support burning dvd.. I didn't say that...;-)))
