MacBook Pro :: SuperDrive Unable To Burn Disc / Hardware Error Focus Servo Failure

Aug 23, 2009

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.

MacBook Pro :: SuperDrive: How To Burn Data DVD-R Disc

Jun 13, 2012

I tried to burn 1.4GB of data on a 4.7GB blank DVD using Finder but got an error message saying "file is too large to fit on the disc. Remove some files an try again". I'm on Mac OS X 10.6.8.

IMac (Intel) :: Failure To Burn DVD - Disc Can't Be Verified?

Jun 5, 2014

I've tried six times to burn 290 photos, exported from iPhoto, to a RW DVD.  The pictures export OK, the transfer to the DVD seems to go OK but it's when the disc is being verified that the problem occurs.  It gets to somewhere around 25% verified then returns the message below and ejects the disc.

I only seem to have two burn settings:  Max (2.4x) and 2.4x - I've tried both and failed.

As a test, I sent a mere 10 photos to a disc and that worked.  Then I tried 100 to a new disc and it failed again.  But the discs' capacity is 4.6 Gb.

In the past I've successfully burned several hundred photos onto many discs from the same manufacturer.

I'm not sure what's going on.  Is it possible that the disc burner on my iMac is broken.

MacBook Pro :: Won't Burn DVD's From The Finder;  "Failure To Communicate" Error

May 27, 2012

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.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Burn Dvd At 8x Speed / Showing Up Drive Error

Nov 30, 2009

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

Laptops :: MacBook Pro Superdrive Failure?

Apr 21, 2010

My 2.33GHz C2D MacBook Pro running 10.6.3 has suddenly decided it doesn't have an optical drive installed!

If I put a CD or DVD in the drive it will pull it in, spin but fail to recognise the disc. It is impossible to eject the inserted disc by any means - except by using a piece of cardboard to stop it spinning after a restart. I have tried data, audio and video CDs/DVDs.

System Profiler says I only have a hard drive attached to Serial-ATA and have no Disc Burning devices installed.

Has the optical drive failed? If so why does it still spin up if the computer doesn't know the drive is there? Does the fault lie elsewhere?

Mac Mini :: Unable To Burn DMG Files To CDs On External USB2 Disc Burners?

Jul 5, 2012

I am having difficulties burning 88.x MB DMG files to CDs (new CD-Rs and an old CD-RW) onto two different external USB2 disc burner drives (both have power AC connected: HP and LG Super brands). The new Mac Mini (no disc slot drive)'s updated 64-bit Mac OS X 10.7.4's Disk Utilities tries to burn and then fail right away or after a few seconds. The error says "Unable to burn 'whatever.dmg' (The disc drive did not respond properly and can't recover or retry." Nothing interesting in dmesg, but Disk Utility's logs had details:[URL]. 

I do see my drives' lights on during the burn. I can quick erase the old CD-RW fine. I can burn 538 MB from an 64-bit Windows 8 on my Acer AM3800 PC with the same discs and external burner drives without any problems. Also, I thought it was my USB cable extension, but it wasn't it. I don't use any USB hubs either. DMG files are fine too. I did notice copying from a CD to Mac Mini's local HDD was slow, but no failures.

Applications :: Unable To Burn DVD - Get An Error Message?

May 30, 2009

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?

Software :: Unable To Burn A CD - Medium Error?

May 2, 2008

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.

OS X :: Unable To Burn - Failed Because Of Medium Write Error?

Aug 29, 2009

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.

OS X :: Unable To Burn Video_TS Folder In Toast / CSS Encryption Disk Error

Nov 27, 2008

I have been trying to backup a few .avi files I have onto DVDs and after reading over the forums I have aquired ffmpegx and Toast 8. I place the avi file into ffmpex, encode it with the dvdffmpeg format. But once i burn it with toast, it takes the original wide screen avi file and stretches it to full screen.

I tried re-encoding with the DVD 16:9 setting selected with ffmpeg and it seems to look better in a preview, but when I try and burn the Video_TS folder in Toast it gives me the CSS Encryption disk error, which I do not understand because I'm not copying a copyrighted dvd.

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?

MacBook Pro :: USB Superdrive Won't Take Disc

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.

MacBook Pro :: SuperDrive Won't Work While Put A Disc?

Aug 5, 2010

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.

MacBook Pro :: Disc Spins Up To Initial Plateau In Superdrive

Jul 10, 2010

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 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.

MacBook Pro :: Frozen At Bank Screen With Boot Disc In SuperDrive?

Feb 9, 2012

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

Power Mac G5 :: Changed Superdrive - Can't Burn From Idvd

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.

PowerPC :: IMac G5 Superdrive Won't Burn Double Layers?

Dec 19, 2006

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?
