Laptops :: Burn A Full Length Film On Dvd From PC Using DVD Clone?

Sep 15, 2009

Can anyone explain to me why when I burn a full length film on dvd from my PC using DVD Clone, I can rip the dvd and burn it from the hard drive without compressing. A very simple process. But on the mac the dvd has to be ripped with MTR, or similar, then compressed, then burned using Toast or Popcorn or something similar. Why are these added steps not necessary on a PC. I don't understand.

MacBook Pro :: Disk FULL Error When Export Movie In IMovie Or Burn Disk In IDVD

Every time I try to export a movie in iMovie or burn a disk in iDVD an error message pops up and says that my startup disk is full.

Does this make sense? If so will you please tell me how to do so.

OS X :: How To Burn Disc Containing Music (Copy Protected)

Sep 18, 2010

I create my own music and sometimes people ask if they can have it on a CD. Since I really do not want people to be able to rip it to their computer's I have denied these requests. However as the demand apparently grows and more people start asking I feel that I would really want to be able to share my music with them, securely. What I would like to do is burn a cd containing my music that people cant rip. I know there will always be some way of doing it, but fore the average computer user preventing mediaplayer/itunes from being able to rip the music will be enough to keep them from doing it.

ITunes :: Possible To Copy / Export Or Burn TV Show To External Media?

Feb 27, 2012

Is it possible to copy/export/burn a TV show from iTunes to an external media (DVD disk, memory stick, etc) such that it can be played on a different computer? I'm starting to think the answer is 'no', based on other discussions here, but thought I'd ask in case I'd missed something.

Laptops :: Startup Disk Error - Cannot Boot To Mac Partition

Apr 17, 2010

I partitioned windows XP onto my Mac HD a few days ago. It worked beautifully until last night. Whenever I booted to it, it stuck at the welcome screen for 10 minutes, and was really buggy upon startup. This morning, my MacBook Pro (bought in August '09) upon turning on automatically boots to windows XP. No amount of holding "c" or "Alt" will bring up rEFIt or boot camp selection pane. And the kicker is, the windows XP partition is completely corrupted.

Here's what happens now:
1) Turn Macbook Pro on, hold down "c" or "Alt"
2) White background for ~ten minutes, nothing happens
3) After a long time, boots to black screen and says "Startup Disk Error... Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart.

I'm pretty sure its trying to boot to Windows XP partition, because Ctrl+Alt+Del is not a Mac OS X command... But I can't boot to my Mac OS X partition.

Laptops :: Fixing Low Disk Space Message On My Macbook?

Nov 16, 2010

I'm a new bird to use Mac OS. This is my 1st Mac.

Initially I'm very satisfy with my Macbook performance, fast response. But after some time, I notice it running is a very very slow operation, even worst that my Samsung laptop.

I was install some software, like OnlyX, CleanMyMac, MacScan 2, MacTuneUp, SpeedTools Utilities Pro. I hope this things can give back my speed, but it doesn't sound that way.

Sometimes, the system it show a message, the content of the message is saying that, my startup disk is low disk space. So, I immediately using CleanMyMac to uninstall some software, finally it able to recovery over 7G. But the system is still the same, running at very slow respond. Especially when I open the Google Chrome (last time very fast), it take about 1 min to loading! Sometimes the message regarding the "startup disk is low disk space" is still popup.

When I open the Finder, I notice the disk space at "Macintosh HD" and "user" is ZERO byte (but sometime it could be >1G but sometime is lesses).

Macbook Pro 13"
Mac OS X 10.6.5 (latest)

OS X :: Cannot Burn Disk - Toast Will Not Launch

Dec 9, 2010

I can't burn a disk, any disk. Toast was working fine but now won't launch. I reinstalled it twice, threw out the preferences, tried launching it from different users (including Administrator), repaired disk permissions, ran Disk Warrior to rebuild directories... Toast still won't launch. So, I turned to the Disk Utility to try and burn a disk, the "Burn" button is always greyed-out. Serious Voodoo, I can't burn a thing even if I were a fire bug.

OS X :: Unable To Burn ISO's To DVD Using Disk Utility

Jul 20, 2009

It all started last week when I tried burning an ISO to a blank Memorex DVD-R. When I inserted the DVD it would eject the CD over and over again no matter how many times I tried. The same thing would happen if I used a Memorex CD-R. Now these CD's worked in the past without any issues, and seem to work just fine on my other computers.

I decided to go out and buy a different brand of DVD-R's at Office Depot, thinking the laptop just wasn't really into these DVD's anymore. I ended up buying TDK DVD-R's. The computer seemed to like these more because it didn't eject them when I placed them into the drive.

OS X :: Burn ISO To USB Or External HDD With Disk Utility - Error 254

Jul 28, 2009

I am desperately trying to burn a ISO file to a USB and external HD but Disk Utility does not want to. Instead I get the error message "Could not validate source - error 254". So there must be a problem with the source which is the ISO file.

I already tried setting the Partition Map Scheme to both Master Boot Record and GUID Partition Table. I also formatted the drive to FAT and HFS+. I cannot find the cause of this error. It clearly looks like Disk Utility does not like burning ISOs to USBs or HDs.

However, I really really need to this since I cannot burn ISOs with my SuperDrive which is also a common problem [URL]with my MacBook Pro.

Hardware :: SuperDrive Will Not Burn Disk On MacBook

Mar 3, 2008

I've got a MacBook that is a couple of years old now. I'm trying to burn about a dozen copies of some audio from a conference I ran. I've tried burning directly from iTunes and by using Toast. In both cases it's hit and miss. Sometimes I'll get one or two copies burned, and then an error message will come up saying that the disk can't be burned. The error messages are different with both programs, but in either case, I'm stuck. The MacBook is no longer under warranty, so I'd like to avoid having to take it in to be repaired. Could it be something as simple as needing to be cleaned?
