I've attempted to burn several CD's from Itunes and I get a CD failed message just prior to the "writing phase" being completed. Is it time to replace the burner or is there some way to evaluate if the problem is related to hardware that is failing?
Here's a summary of my equipment: 2005 Macbook Pro 2,2; Intel Core 2 Duo; 2.16 GHz processor speed; Disk Driver: Mat****aDVD-R UJ-857D.
I tried blowing out the DVD/CD with canned air as suggested and re-tried burning a disk. It acted like it was working until it got to the final phase of "writing" and then seemed like it got stuck
