MacBook :: Cannot Read CDs After Burn Medium Error
Jun 20, 2009
I have one of the older macbooks [the ones that were given out during summer '07, that came with the free ipod nano], and it used to burn cds fine but today I tried inserting a cd and it burned three songs and then said burn medium error. now when i put in a cd there is some scratching and whizzing and other random noises, and after a few minutes it spits it out without asking what I want to do with it.
I went to burn a CD today and continue to get the error message:
Sense key=medium error
Sense code= OX73, OX03
I had this problem before but thought it was a bad disk, when I would put another one in it would burn fine. When I went to burn a new one today, using the same disks that I previously used I would get the above error. I am using Toast Titanium 5.2, Sony discs.
i'm trying to burn a Windows 7 ISO my brother got from some ACM subscription thing. Anyway, every time i try to burn it, it says "Unable to burn "(cd name)". (The burn failed because of a medium write error.)". Why is this happening? Is it the superdrive or the DVD-Rs? My computer is the Macbook pro with 2.4GHz intel core 2 duo cpu and with 2GB of 676MHz DDR2 SDRAM. The DVD-Rs i'm trying to use are Sony branded.
I connot burn a DVD. I get the message "The burn to the HL-DT-ST DVDRW GS23N drive failed. The burn failed because of a medium write error." I re-booted, tried different brands of DVDs and slowed the burn speed with no results.
I keep trying to burn a CD-R, and every time itunes stops burning halfway through and i get this error message, "Attemp to burn a disc failed. Burn failed due to a medium write error." I am using memorex CD-R's and have tried with 4 times with different CD's. Is this a software or hardware problem? Any info would be awesome.
all of a sudden a little while ago (after some apple update, don't remember which tbo) i cannot burn any media, well, 98% of the time.. It starts up and then instnaly goes to finishing burn, and spits it out with a "fail burn because of a medium write error". This happens with 2 brans of media i have, both of which worked flawlessly before, and popcorn, toast as well as trying disc utility. i need to burn dvds for work and so on, but can no longer.
I was having issues with DVD+Rs and it was recommended by most of the folks who burn iDVD movies to use Verbatim DVD-Rs. So I tried them. They burn successfully in my drive, but when I try to play it, the drive treats it as a blank disk. When I try to burn something to it again, it treats it as a previously burned disk. Confusing. The burned DVD disk will play in my wife's PC and on the home DVD video player. . . .

I have a MacbookPro 2.16 about 1 year old. Decided to back up some data on DVD+R DL yesterday. Burnt 2 discs and they worked fine (used Toast, and did verification, all ok), I could read both with no problems.
Today I tried to read them and they both get ejected! They work fine on a Windows machine I tried, but my Macbook Pro just doesn't like them anymore.
My Macbook keeps saying 'The burn to the MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-898 drive failed. The burn failed because of a medium write error.' everytime I try to burn a cd with data on it, it has only just started doing it after 2 years of use, how do I fix it?
I am running a MacBook Pro 2.2 GHz with a MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-857E drive. Recently I have been trying to burn some video_ts files ripped with MacTheRipper on to 8x Memorex DL DVD +R. I think the problem here is that my drive is only built to handle 4x speeds. I have tried decreasing the speeds in Toast this however has no effect and I still receive a drive error. I have also tried to transform the video_ts folder into multiple different types of disc images and burn them to the DL DVD from the disk utility function. The error I get from here is also a drive error
I have a message that pops up and disappears before I can get a chance to read it. I figured it may be an issue with an application since MS office 11 is installed and was running at the times also, before a reminder pops up a message appears. I fear there may be a potential issue with the OS or an application.
Im using a 17" unibody macbookpro 2.66 early 09 to make a copy of my Leopard Disc to put in an offsite storage location. Im able to rip movies and burn movies (DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-DL), iMovie videos, iTunes cds, rip audio discs, etc. The media is Dual-Layer DVD-R in disk utility I burn it at the slowest possible speed (on both systems) at 2.4x
After it writes the data to the disc and finishes, i get this lovely image:
I tried doing a test install of it from the burned dvd and it installed fine.... = what the huh!?
its done this twice. using the same media on a 15" 2.2ghz uMBP late 2008 gives me a completed successfully notification every-time.

I miss out on the beta testing for Diablo 3 and i would like to know if it is possible to run Diablo 3 in Medium or High setting. Below are my Macbook Specs. 13-inch: 2.4 GHz2.4GHz dual-coreIntel Core i58GB 1333MHz500GB 5400-rpm1Intel HD Graphics 3000
Info: MacBook Pro (13-inch Early 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
I'm wanting to order a custom laptop messenger from timbuk2 here, but I don't know what size will fit a current unibody 17 inch MBP. According to the dimensions listed by apple here, the medium would bag would fit it fine. On timbuk2's site the large says it fits most 17 inch laptops, but the true width is too big. However, the true width on the medium bag would seem to fit. Does anybody use the medium timbuk2 messenger bag for their 17 inch MBP?
I've searched and have found a lot of people using the medium bag for their 15 inch MBP and they say it fits "perfect". Some people mention that they use the large bag for their 15 inch also. The site's specifications would seem to fit perfect with a medium bag, so i'm not really sure. I would prefer the medium bag, but I don't want to waste my money since you can't return custom bags.
I am trying to use Syncopation to sync my iTunes library between my iMac and two Macbooks. I have had success in the past, but haven't used the program for a while (yeah...lazy!). Now, whenever I go to run the sync, I get this:
Cannot read from socket. error 0
It may well be unrelated to Syncopation.
I recall data socket errors being an old windows thing, usually due to viruses or malware. Obviously, that's not a problem I should be having on my iMac. I don't get the error running anything else.
I am trying to burn a 4.2 GB project in iDVD. My project is saved onto an external hard drive, and when I start it burning, I get an error message that says "Not enough free disk space for encoding the remaining assets." It says I only have 825 MB available on my hard drive and 3.362 are needed for encoding, but I actually have 786 GB free! Any idea what could be causing this?
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.
Does anyone know the meaning of an error code -43? I receive this when trying to burn a data DVD from the Finder; the error text is to the effect of "<cannot find resource fork> for <path not accessible>". Doesn't seem to matter what I'm trying to burn. Burning disc images using Disk Utility or from iDVD works fine. My hard disk, from where the files are being copied, verified with no errors.
I'm getting the error code 0x8002006E when trying to burn DVDs. I am able to burn CDs and the drive reads data and audio CDs and data and video DVDs.
I've tried the two fixes suggested on Apple forums without success. The first was to trash the com.apple.finder.plist and the second involved removing the battery, hold the power button down, and pressing alt, command, R, P and the power button down until I heard the two chimes. Neither worked.
I've used Verbatim DVD+R and TDK DVD-R disks without success. I've used the Verbatim disks for months with no problems.
Computer is a late 2011 MacBook Pro. I burned 2 DVD's successfully (first time on this new machine) but when I tried to do another one it failed and I got a prompt that said the computer was not communicating with the drive. I shut down, rebooted, tried again with the same result. Called Applecare and they concluded that it was a hardware failure (2nd in 6 months) after trying all sorts of stuff. On a hunch, I tried one more time and, guess what, it burned just fine. It may yet turn out to be a hardware problem after all but it sure "felt" like it was software related or else some kind of firmware glitch. I am running 10.7.3.
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. So I bought an external hard drive and backed up my mac using Time Machine. Now I want to delete everything off my mac's internal Hard Drive and use my external hard drive so I can empty my disk. Does this make sense? If so will you please tell me how to do so.
Within the last week, all of our computers have developed a 'bouncing E'! The entourage symbol jumps up and down and demands attention, there is a box saying 'Entourage could not read this .rge file', it never stops, it just comes back every half hour or so. I suspect it has something to do with sharing projects, but we have done nothing differently from normal so can't trace the reason. It's possibly linked to when one person sent an invite to all the others asking them to attend and event but I'm not sure.
It was also suggested it might be because there is a lot (ie up to 10 years in one case!) of email in the in box, but we have been doing some clearing out with no result. I don't know much about macs and am in the dark here, and everyone is blaming me as it was my idea to create a shared diary/contacts list in entourage. Some other forum said to find the corrupted file, but I've no idea where to look or even how to tell that it's corrupt.
At the past month I get this error message (in picture), the external disk is WD 500GB disk. The finder became unresponsive and I need to do one of 2 things: or just to unplug the power cord from the disk and in this way force eject it or just force restart my iMac.
I am trying to copy about 12000 songs from my internal HD to an external so I can wipe my drive clean and start again. The problem is that I keep getting this "disk cannot be read from or written to" every few hundred songs. The songs have come from all over, and there is no common thread to how I acquired any of them. I've actually got this error when trying to copy several different file types to an external HD and I've no earthly idea why. I'm sure the drive is riddled with irreparable errors which is why I want to wipe it, but I need to get a lot of these files over before I do so. Can anyone recommend some kind of utility that will identify and/or repair these corrupt files so I don't have to stop and start the transfer every 30 seconds?
