07-11-2007, 11:41 PM #1Could the Superdrive be the culprit with my burning problems?
my Imac is a couple of months old, and I've been burning DVD's with no problems with your help. lately, I can't get anything to burn. I have Toast 8, Visual Hub, Burn, and DVDonetoone. all programs will encode, but poop out ten seconds into the burn. every log I check is like this:
1991935 extents written (3890 MB)
MESSAGE:preparing data for burn
MESSAGE:The burn failed because of a medium write error.
I've tried various brands ov DVD-R's, +R's with no luck. even the brands I was using with success end up just being coasters. the coasters I do burn are recognized as blank DVD-R's by the iMac on insertion, but then I'm told by OS X it can't recognize the DVD.
any thoughts short of taking it in to Apple or buying an external burner to try?

If it isn't too challenging, I'd open the case and make sure the cabling is firmly connected. I don't really know what is involved to do that though.
Also, I wonder if the system disk that came your system can test the drive. Give hardware tests a try.
