    Specs:
    17" MBP unibody
    Toast 10 Titanium error on MBP
    I get the following error message when trying to burn a CD/DVD once it has finalized the video conversion from .AVI or music format:

    The drive reported an error:
    Sense Key = MEDIUM ERROR
    Sense Code = 0x73, 0x03

    Specs:
    Late 2013 rMBP, i7, 750m gpu, OSX versions 10.9.3, 10.10
    Try different DVD discs, some cheap/el-crapo ones can cause that error to be thrown.

    Also check that you have buffer underrun protection enabled.

    You can also try forcing it to burn at a slower speed (possible it's trying to burn the disc too fast)

    here's a long thread on the topic that might also give you some things to try...

    Sense Key = Medium Error sense Code = 0x73, 0x03 in Toast - VideoHelp.com
    My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m, 16Gig ram; 2013 Mac Pro 6 core w/ D700, 16Gig Ram; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Linux; Apple TV (1080p version)

    Thanks for that info. I looked into it and tried slowing the burn speed down but with no luck. Still the same error. I tried getting another version of Roxio Toast 10 but same deal. Only thing left I guess is to get a CD-drive cleaner disc?

    Specs:
    20" Intel iMac 2.4 Ghz/3G Ram/320HD, Snow Leopard. PBook G4, 1.5Ghz/1.5 Ram/250 HD, Leopard 10.5.6.
    It'll be the discs or the burner, but normally the discs as was said.
    Toast will not be the problem.

    I have tried several different discs, all the same brand (Verbatim) which I have had zero problems with in the past. It is encoding/burning now through iDVD, so I guess I will see what happens in a few minutes...

    It has to be a video problem, I was able to burn a data DVD using Toast and it worked just fine.

    After running some diagnostics w/ Apple tech support it's come to be that my laser is defunct for whatever reason.
