    Question Trouble Burning From Inserting Blank Disc
    Has anyone ever experience any trouble from a mac not reading a blank cd or dvd?

    This only happens to me from time-to-time with my mac. One week it burns cd and dvd just fine, then the next week it doesn't read any blank disk that I insert. It acts like it wants to read the blank disc for about a minute then spits it out. Does anyone knows why this is happening? Its starting to *&#@ me off because it only happens when I need to burn some data for an urgent purpose.

    Maul,

    Are all the CDs you are using from the same batch? Should work! If you bought them on sale, some may be poor quality and won't burn well consistenly.

    I've seen many problems on this forum concerning "no burn" like yours and makes me think the Apple burners need better QA. If you still have the problem when using good quality CDs/DVDs, call Apple and question them about it.

    I was just about to post this exact topic. I've been using the same blank DVD's for a while, but suddenly the drive has been spitting the disc out after about a minute. It was working perfectly about a month or 2 ago. It suddenly stopped though. I kind of need to be able to burn DVD's because I have a client waiting on a video.

    Folks,

    You may have done this already, but go to System Preferences>CDs & DVDs and check the scroll bar settings. I think maybe they can get out of whack...

    Checked that. When a I tried to insert a blank DVD yesterday in toast it said "reading" but it never read it, and spat it out.

    adler,

    Don't know if this will help, but download and run all the scripts with Mainmenu, get it here: http://www.santasw.com/

    I set up and use "Execute Batch Tasks" every day or two. It cleans cache, fixes permissions, etc. Give it a try free, it's donateware, see if it helps...
