View Full Version : eMac rejects TDK DVD+R
Jan 15, 2006, 05:35 PM
I have an eMac 1,25GHz with a SuperDrive.
I've bought a box with 25 TDK DVD+R, but unfortunately when I insert them in the drive, the drive just spits them out.
Do you guys know if any problem with some DVD media and possible workarounds?

I'm not sure if it's on yours, but I know some old mac DVD burners only did DVD-R.

Every Apple SuperDrive prior to the current generation PowerMacs and PowerBooks officially only burn DVD-Rs. I've discovered though, that unofficially, nearly every PowerMac G5 will burn both DVD+R and DVD-R media. eMacs, iMacs, iBooks, and Mac minis, however, only have DVD-R burners.

My Powerbook is not the current one and it burns officially burns +Rs and -Rs.

I've been happily burning +R for quite some time. Although I can only burn them at 4x while the -R I can burn at 8x. So bizarre...
