    Please Help!
    I have been using Itunes 4.0.1 for a while (since it was released with no problem i have os X 10.2.6 running and when i go to burn a disc (any format)
    the disc is fired out and i get a warning dialog that says disc burning failed because it cannot be found.

    Any ideas?

    What kind of burner do you have? Internal or external?

    I know it's the standard line, but have you repaired permissions lately?

    Perhaps a driver, or a path to a driver is locked away from iTunes.

    Hmm....I had this problem when I first installed Panther and repairing permissions fixed that up quite nicely. Hope it helps.

    Itunes burn failure

    Thanks for the suggestions i'll try that out
    It may be the permissions I'll let you know.
    The drive is internal Ugg it's the superdrive model.

    cheers

    looks like it's not gonna be straight forward.

    I have repaired permissions but it had no effect.

    Any other ideas?

    i know this is extreme but it solves most problems...
    why not erase the hard drive and do a clean install of the os?

    burn failure itunes

    Not too sure about that this is the only thing playing up on the machine and formatting the drive would mean re-installing a lot of applications again.

    If there's no solution i'll have to use toast
    for the time being and hope that the Panther upgrade will sort it (when it arrives)

    Yes, übergeek is right and that solution is extreme. You should consider that as a last resort. There is, however a middle ground possible solution and that is a software restore.

    I had similar funyness on my quicksilver a few months ago, and I did this. All of my applications, files and the like, was moved into a brand new install of the OS.

    Aside from losing some permissions (funky ones I admit), this was seamless.

    Just load up your OS X CD and check that option.
