Hi,
I'm trying to make multiple copies of a DVD i've made using iDVD and can't get it to work using Disk Utility. While searching for an explanation of the error i get i found a similar question on another forum, which remained unanswered.

"Input/output Error" would suggest it was a driver problem or suchlike to me but that doesn't follow the usual problem-free Mac driver set-up.

I've made copies of a previous DVD i made by this method , and have since followed the 'Help' to the letter to no avail. I've tried several third party copying utilities to no avail.

Is my system damaged? Is there another way to copy DVDs?

Note: it takes my old Mac 4hrs to render the DV for disk burning purposes, and even then it only burns few before any system interupt halts the process (freezes). I need probably 20+ copies of a friends social event and the footage so far covers three DVD's, it's turning into a nightmare!

I'm running an old G4 (AGP Graphics) with processor upgraded to 1.4GHz, an added DVD burner, 1.12GB SDRAM, and two added HDDs, one internal one external, with the DV on the added HDDs. (the original 30G one is full of software!) OS X 10.3.9

I have a similar set-up

I only get burn errors when its a warm day and the machine has been running hot for a while

also - is the media cheap - that could also be it.

also upon up system profiler and select Disc Burning - does it say Yes to Burn Support and does the drive have under-run protection?

Otherwise

Hmm, the DVD-Rs were fairly cheap, but not the cheapest!
I have an app that lets me see the CPU temp and it rarely heats up when trying to work with the DVDs, which surpised me!
My system profiler reads as:
Quote:
Manufacturer: PIONEER
Model: PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-108
Revision: 1.14
Drive Type: CD-RW/DVD-RW
Disc Burning: Vendor Supported
Removable Media: Yes
Detachable Drive: No
Protocol: ATAPI
Unit Number: 0
Socket Type: Internal
Where would i find the under-run protection info?

Thanks, by the way!

[edit] from the manufacturers website, it does have under-run protection [/edit]
QUOTE Thanks
