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 recently burned a project to DVD. It's a data disc, and seems to have worked fine, about 1.2 GB of the four available on the DVD-R I burned with a Superdrive on my G4 desktop.
I told it to write session in Toast 7 Titanium, but when i try to burn something else to the disc, Toast rejects it. With DVD's, can you only burn one data disc? No multiple sessions? It's okay if this is the case, I just want to know.
why I get this message when trying to burn photos on to high quality discs."The burn to the SuperDrive drive failed. The disc drive didn’t respond properly and can’t recover or retry." I have just managed to burn some others photos perfectly fine.
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?
I purchased a used Apple USB Superdrive for use with my 2013 Retina Macbook Pro. Upon plugging in the USB drive to my USB port, it makes a faint click sound, like its trying to eject a disc. Whenever I try to insert a disc, it never grabs it, or even acts like it will take it.
I just replaced my hard drive in my 2007 MacBook Pro. However, when I now put a disc in the superdrive, it only reads it occasionally. Most of the time, it just spits the disc out.
I've tried my tiger install disc, leopard install disc, and snow leopard install disc.
NOTE: I cloned my old hard drive to a back up and put it back on the new hard drive once installed. So, I'm up and running, but I want to reinstall leopard as a fresh install, but the superdrive doesn't want to work.
So I was watching friends and on my macbook and whenever I'd move my macbook even a little the superdrive would make noises as if the disc was being scratched inside. All the other discs that I tried didnt do any such thing. Possible reasons? Can I damage the internal laser this way?
I've just noticed trying to upgrade from 10.5 to SL that my Superdrive is acting funny. Anyone that's heard a superdrive knows that when you put a disc in the machine it spins up to a first "plateau" and then spins up to full speed. In my case, it spins up to the initial plateau and then spins down again. It will do this cycle maybe 3 - 4 times and then sometimes spit the disc back out. Occasionally it will continue this spin-up-spin-down cycle until I restart and hold the click button (eject does nothing). I am screwed (I'm just out of warrantee). Its a real shame - I use the optical drive so infrequently that I would never notice there was a problem until it's too late. This is a 2009 15" MBP, 2.66 ghz with 4gb ram running 10.5.8. I have a MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-868
I have a G5 PowerMac and it has a SuperDrive. I can still watch DVDs but I cannot burn them. When I put in a blank it just spits them out. I don't know if this has anything to do with it but my iDVD is not compatable with the version of OSX I am running. I can't even burn music onto a DVD from itunes. CDs work fine though.
I noticed my notebook running a little slower than usual so I took the usual steps, without much luck. I then verified and repaired disk permissions in Disk Utility. Tried to use disk repair but got a message that the disk was damaged and I needed to boot from an install disc and run Disk Utility from it. I put the disc in, chose it as my boot disc in Preferences, and ever since once I power up all I get is the chime and a blank grey dead screen. proceed or at the very least remove the disc from the SuperDrive
Info: MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.1), 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2, 4GB RAM
The guys at work convinced me that I could change out my own internal superdrive and I did. Now it will read disks but it won't burn from idvd or itunes. I get the message "burning preparation error: Not enough space for encoding the remaining assets. The weird thing is since I changed out my internal superdrive my external la cie DVD burner gives me the same message when I try to burn to it.
Information: G5 (new) Pioneer DVD -RW DVR-112D Mac OS X (10.4.10)
So my super drive is not able to write double layer dvd's, even though it's supposed to, as confirmed by the System Profiler. I'm using the right kind of blanks (DVD+R DL), tried different brands, and it always just stops with a "media writer error" right away. It recognizes them as writable disks when I insert them, but simply refuses to actually write.
It's the 17" G5 iSight model. Is there an easier way to fix this than to send the whole thing to Apple to have the drive replaced? Also, how much does it run for Apple to install a new super drive for me?
Created iDVD with slideshow and music on my 5 yr old MBP.Tried to burn it to a Staples -R DVD disc.It appears to be burning for about 35 minutes, then with one minute left, it stops and ejects the disc.No error message. I saved the file as a Disc Image and was able to view it with the DVD player on my MBP.However, when I went to burn it to the disc, I got this message:"The disc can't be burned, because the device failed to calibrate the laser power level for this media."
Whenever I burn pictures to a disc for some reason they duplicate. There will be two, three, four and sometimes even five copies of each picture or folder of pictures. What can I do to prevent this from happening. I would like to burn only one copy of each picture on the disc.
Info: MacBook Pro (13-inch Mid 2010), OS X Mavericks (10.9.2)
We have run out of space on our laptop. What would be the best way to store info/pictures/video aside from Time Machine? Is there an easy way to transfer data to an external hard drive or should I begin to burn CD of the data?
I am having an issue where the superdrive in my BRAND NEW mac pro isn't working correctly. It doesn't read DVD's consistently, System profiler hangs when you click on disc burning and after that the drive does not respond to eject commands. When you do get the tray to open, insert a DVD that is a known good disc, it will "mount" on the desktop then when you click on it, it hangs trying to read the disc. When you right click and select eject, the icon just goes away and the disc does not eject. A restart at least allows me to eject the disc. Resetting SMC has no effect on the drives behaviour. Or suggest a good aftermarket DVD drive?
I had to drop my iMac G5 in this morning to the apple store to get a stuck DVD out of the superdrive!!. My question is, how often to discs get stuck in the drive??? Is this a common problem??? Is there a risk of the disc getting stuck every time you put one in???? Why wouldn't apple put a pinhole to manually eject the disc or some other way of manually getting the disc out!???
I have a 17" Power Book G4 which is three months old. It is my first Mac after 20 years with a PC and it is not a happy Mac. I am not a happy Mac owner It now has a CD jammed in the superdrive. It will neither eject or be recognised. All the threads say hold down the mouse button, this will force eject the disc. All this does is give me a blue screen. No effect on the disk. While I sit here it is trying to eject the disc on its own every 30 seconds or so. It is a home made disc with a paper label which works in my 2 PCs and windows laptop. How do I get it out, preferably without the use of a hammer.
i have just bought a used grey macbook and on my girlfriends macbook the superdrive sucks the disc in almost straight away whereas on my macbook i have to push the disc almost all the way in before it actually sucks it in. Is there anyway of fixing this and making it suck the disc in like it should do?
