    What kind of files are you trying to burn and which method are you using to burn or which app are you using to do the burn?

    Are you running Tiger or Leopard?

    There are 3 early 2006 models which don't support burning to dual layer disc.

    • The MacBook shipped in three configurations. The low-end model, with a 1.83 GHz Core Duo processor, 512 MB of RAM, a 60 GB hard drive, and a CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive, sold for $1,099.
    • The middle-end model, with a 2.0 GHz Core Duo processor, 512 MB of RAM, a 60 GB hard drive, and a CD-RW/DVD±RW SuperDrive, sold for $1,299.
    • Finally, a high-end model shipped in a black case (the first black Apple portable in more than five years). It improved upon the middle-end model with an 80 GB hard drive, and sold for $1,499.
    Do you have one of these models?
