I have been trying to burn dvd's lately using my macbook pro. However, when I start the burning process, "the program quit unexpectedly" every time. I have tried this using Toast Titanium which I have read is the best burning software as well as others, all with the same result. PLEASE HELP!

As a first stage, run disk utility and run a permissions repair. Restart the mac and tell us if the problem persists.

Just as a test, try using Burn - which is free - just to see if the issue could be with Toast.

To the OP ...

Have you tried burning a CD / DVD using the standard OS X functionality ?

Are you trying to burn Dual Layer DVD's ?

Have you tried using another brand of DVD's ?

Are you trying to burn DVD +R or DVD -R ?

Post back and I am sure someone can help you pinpoint the problem.

The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?

You might be experiencing a hardware problem with your DVD superdrive. First thing to check is open the "System Profiler" (Applications, Utilities) and make sure the drive is showing up.

You didn't mention whether or not you can read a disk in the drive? Have you checked to see if you can?

Regards.

I'm using Toast 10 Titanium. It worked fine for four days. Now every time I open it the application "quits unexpectedly" after three seconds.

Up to now
..I uninstalled it two times.
..checked everything with disk utility.
..tried to delete all kind of files in the library folder. Although I might have left out some.

Weird thing is that it worked fine and then .. baff .. nothing.

? anyone up for the riddle ?

I'm experiencing the very same issues as the op, and have thus far tried everything in the sticky.

I'm using Burn, and trying to burn two films, but each time Burn gets to burning, its closes unexpectedly, which now, I fear my dvd drive maybe faulty, as I have not ever used it to burn a cd or dvd previously. I have check everything, and my drive has burn permissions.

Is there a simple test I can perform to check burning status?

I'm all out of options.

About the only test you can accomplish is one that lets you burn to media. If you have some CD+RW disks laying around, do some test burns to see if it's working. You can always erase them later. Also try burning using Disk Utility rather than Burn.

The Apple Hardware Test may be another way to test the drive, however, I'm not sure if it includes it in its testing.

Regards.

It would be more useful if Apple stopped putting Superdrives in their laptops and put an actual toaster in, so I can have some breakfast while I use the external burner.

On the contrary, I had excellent experience with the Matsu drive in my first MacBook Pro. My '08 model shipped with an LG-branded drive that was loud and developed problems within 6 months. Luckily the Apple Store swapped it for a Matsu model and it works like a champ. I do have occasional issues burning dual-layer discs, but I'm told that's a bug in OS X and not a hardware issue.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
