Software :: Atapi / AT / MacBookPro Not Burning DVDs
Oct 9, 2009
Mac Book Pro / 10.5.8 Impossible to burn DVD, it refuses to burn then ejects the DVD. (It's not the first time, the computer has already been fixed for a similar problem and it then didn't accept any DVD, even for playing). For the moment he can read. I've tried only Verbatim DVD+R or DVD-R. Through Toast Titanium 10.0 or not.
Error code 0x8002006E
Sense key = Medium Error
Sense Code = 0x0C
Notice that with CDs, all is right, burning and reading. It seems then not to be a "mechanical" problem. I'd like to know what does this code mean? How to fix? Can you tell me what to do and propose some solution?
What's the matter with Apple, don't they know there is such things as DVDs . I have quite a lot of DVDs from my day's with a PC, but now I have a iMac I don't seem to be able to use them except for 1 time recording. Say for accounting , if I use the disc utility I cannot use them more than once and the same with Roxio Toast. If the backup is only 39mb that is an awful waste of a DVD to only use it once. Alternatively am I wrong with my approach's to use more than once?
I'm trying to burn copies of dvds, like the second season of the office for example. On my PC we used DVDshrink to rip the dvd and then the same program would burn a copy on a blank dvd. I downloaded Mactheripper and ripped the dvd, and burned it using the burn folder in the finder. The first time the file was too large [ 7 something gb when the dvd is only 4] The second time I thought it worked but when I went to watch it it said "incorrect disc" I'm not sure if I'm doing somehting wrong of if there is a better program for ripping and shrinking the size of dvds?
I film plays and put them on to dvds, well when I burn them as it is burning it slowly takes up memory. Does any one no how to get that space back? I do a lot of plays and it seems that it has taken quite a bit of space!
I'm having issues with burning data DVDs on my Mackbook Pro (running Snow Leopard) I'm burning large files (DVD/Blu-Ray rips) and the discs are unreliable. I'm trying to pinpoint the problem but haven't been able to. Some of the discs are not able to be read by the Mac - sometimes it spits the disc out a few seconds after being inserted...other discs just spin and spin and spin and it seems the Mac cannot read them - I can't even eject them without rebooting the computer. There seems to be no rhyme or reason between discs that read OK and discs that don't. Some discs were burned via the internal superdrive and some via a Sony USB dual layer burner. All discs burn and verify OK - there was no indication on any of them that anything went wrong. I am using Sony and Memorex discs, single and dual layer. Are there any known issues with either the Mac superdrive, or the burning of large (4+ GB - almost 8 GB) single files? I've got a good number of discs here and like I said all burned OK...but I've been having to go back to retrieve files and am only now finding that some of the discs are giving the problems described above, which means many of the backups I thought were legit are no good. Alternatively, if there is a better method for backing up these files . They are stored on hard drives being used by a streaming video player. I thought backing up each file to DVD would be a reliable backup method but apparently this is not the case. It's not ideal to back up to other hard drives - there are too many files and it would be too expensive. I don't know that online backups would be feasible because of the amount of time it would take to upload them and the space they would take up would likely be too expensive to maintain.
I bought Roxio Toast Titanium 5.0 and downloaded the 5.2.1 update so I could burn some DVDs on my iMac (which is about 2 months old). I set it to record a video_ts file from one of the DVD discs that I've ripped to the hard drive. It records the files and verifies, then it says that the DVD was burned fine. The problem is that when I try it on any DVD player, the disc will not play. It won't play in a stand-alone DVD player, on the iMac nor on my PC. I checked what was burned, and all the files were recorded fine. I've gone through 6 discs with the same result. The only time it recorded anything viewable, was when I set it for "disc copy" and even then, the entire DVD was not recorded because of some error and when I popped it in the player, the portion that was recorded was very pixelated and unwatchable.
last week i tried burning a dvd using roxio toast, but before it began to burn it says the following error: the drive reported an error: sense key = medium error sence code = 0x73, 0x03 i tried to use another dvd, but it is saying the same error (i have been using the same brand of dvd before but never encountered such problems), so tried to restart, and it proceeded to burn, no more errors, so i thought it was only a one time thing, so today, i tried burning again, the same thing happen, the same error, i tried 4 dvd's but the same error keeps on happening, but when i restart the macbook pro, it would proceed to burn with no errors. i wonder what seems to be the problem? my dvd drive or the software? anyone encountered the same problem before?
I want to burn a DVD from a video I have on my hard drive. I want it to play on DVD players as well as my iMac. But what I don't want is the smarmy "Themes" iDVD insist there be on the result. IS there a way I can do this without the Themes or will I have to use a different burner? Some videos I have are .avi, DVIX, .wmv, etc. I'm sure that the starting format has nothing to do with my problem, but one never knows. I'm running OSX 10.6.2 and am really happy with it. Although, I haven't see any difference when running it in 64-bit mode. But maybe if I were using more 64-bit software?
Do they exist yet? The prices for laptop BD drives in general are lower than I expected but any slot-loaders available are about 12mm high, which means 17" MBP owners are in luck. [URL] It's strange that this one is available though, yet encouraging. If they can build a 9mm drive that uses a tray then surely a slot format would be easier?
Been searching online for an easy way to copy DVDs to the hard drive so they can be watched without the external DVD player needed for the MacBook Air.I've converted the DVD to a .DMG file using the disk utility tool and then mounted it...but cant figure out how to make it actually execute inside of QuickTime...
I use a MacbookPro 2.4 intel duo core - Latest Snow Leopard - 2 gig ram. No trauma in it's life - never been dropped. I have a fair knowledge of computers but by no means am I a techie. Up until now my MBP has been running fine ( no strange behavior or noises etc. ). It now wont start. It refused to wake up from sleep last night. I've pulled the battery, used pwoer adapter etc. In a normal startup - there is a brief whirr sound, followed by the startup chime. My MBP makes the whirr, but thats it - no chime and no further activety. The the screen is blank, there is no keyboard lights, there is no sound if pressing the volume key. - I have tried: - Zapping Pram - Starting it up as a target drive - Plugging in an external drive to start from that -- the drives green LED lit up so assume there's USB power - and the LED will turn red ( but only once so I assume there is no 'conversation' ). - Tried a forced restart using - Cntrl - Power button. This gets me to the initial whirr again but no further. i have NOT yet tried to reset the PMU - how do you do this? Anything else it could be? Anything else I could try? I need it back asap for work - my last resort is to pull the hard drive and try to use it as an external drive to access my info - but I'd like to exhaust all tests before I do that.
I cannot get PS3 to recognize (connect) with my MacBookPro following an update to MediaLink 1.59. With the earlier version of MediaLink I could look at photos on our tv via PS3. Now I do not get the icon for MediaLink when looking at, for example, photos on PS3.
My MacBookPro is running a tad slow on start up lately. Its taking a fair bit longer to display the blue screen and my password. Safari and Mail are the only items that I have set to launch on signing in. I have removed extra fonts and languages also turned magnification off to speed things up, but its mainly the start up thats just a bit slower than usual.
Yesterday I upgraded to Lion and added iCloud. I can see my email fine on my iPhone, but not at all on my MacBook Pro. I've been searching for A-B-C directions on how to use Lion and iCloud, but haven't found them yet.
I got my macbook pro stolen yesterday, and my first reaction was to lock it on Icloud. I didn't read the instructions before doing so but now that I read them I noticed that by locking it I won't be able to find it or wipe it. How do I unlock it?
Info: MacBook Pro (13-inch Late 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
i frequantly use my macbookpro in huge wi-fi area's and notice a lot of other mac/pc users on their computers as well. Is there a way to totally monitor the network I'm on..(how many users, bandwidth using)
I've seen/heard people "hacking" into others computers on the network and messing stuff up. I just wanna prepare/protech myself.
My brother's got an early 2008 MacBook Pro 17'' running on OSX 10.5.8, in his new room he shares the router with some other rooms. When he's connected alone or on the same time than PCs or iPod Touch he doesn't get any problem. But as soon as there's another Mac that tries to connect, both of the Macs start to connect and disconnect immediately and continuously, sometimes popping up messages like "impossible to connect, wait a minute". The router is a Thomson.
I have been migrating files from a PC to a MacBookPro. The migration screen is no longer up on the PC, but the Mac screen says "about 11 minutes remaining." This has been up for about an hour with no progression. Is there a way I can stop the migration where it is and finish manually?
Downloaded the Pages App which shows on my iphone and ipad but not on my MacBookPro. I have all the right sync instructions turned on in ITUNES and the iphone/ipad. What do I do to get the Pages App on the doc of my MacBookPro?
