Hi there,

I am having some difficulties burning DVDís and would greatly appreciate any help you can offer. Before I begin explaining the problem, please let me note that the DVDís that I am trying to burn are backups of DVDís I have already purchased. They are for my personal use as backups. I am relatively inexperienced, and because I do not know what information you need, I will try to be as specific as possible:

I have a Macbook Pro 15 inch. Here is my burner information:

MAT****A DVD-R UJ-857E:

Firmware Revision: ZA0E
Interconnect: ATAPI
Burn Support: Yes (Apple Shipped/Supported)
Cache: 2048 KB
Reads DVD: Yes
CD-Write: -R, -RW
DVD-Write: -R, -R DL, -RW, +R, +RW, +R DL
Burn Underrun Protection CD: Yes
Burn Underrun Protection DVD: Yes
Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, DVD-DAO
Media: No


I use MacTheRipper and then Popcorn 2 to burn the DVDís. I have Memorex DVD+R Dual Layers. The package says 2.4 to 8x, 240 min, 8.5 GB.

When I try to burn the disc I always get an error on the lead-out. I cannot remember the exact error message, but can remember that it said it was a hardware error.

Last night, I tried DVD2oneX 2.3, and received error messages both times I tried burning:

ďERROR: 1:MESSAGE:Burn failed
MESSAGE:The device failed to respond properly, unable to recover or retry.
MESSAGE:Ē

The first time, I tried using DVD2oneX I had it on regular speed, and the second time, I first restarted the computer and tried the Command key, Option, R, and L trick and it worked as stated, but did not fix my problem. I also attempted to switch the write speed from Max to 6X.

If anyone has any ideas and can help, I would greatly appreciate it. I have tried doing research, but have come up empty handed with an actual solution. Also, if you think I need an external hard drive and you have one to recommend, please let me know. I donít know if this is a defect with my burner, but I would really like to get it straightened out.

Thanks Again,
Kevin

I would try another brand of DVDs. I use either TDKs or Verbatim DVD-Rs. I have some Verbatim DVD+R DL, just have not tried them as of yet. Also I maybe wrong here, but I don't think a burned DVD+R DL will play on a desk DVD player. Hopefully someelse will come along with more information here.
